How do I setup my samsung LED smart TV, HD comcast cable box, and denon avr-3806 receiver??

So I am trying to setup my home system. right now I have the HDMI from my comcast box running directly into my smart TV. I tried running the HDMI cable from my HD comcast box to my denon HDMI in. Then i ran another HDMI cable from the denon monitor out, to my LED smart TV HDMI in. My smart TV just says searching for signal, and can never find one.... I know my denon receiver works, because i had it connected to my old DLP TV via A/V cable. Can someone please point me in the right direction?? Do I need a digital optical audio cable running from the comcast box to the denon receiver so my smart TV recognizes it?? Really confused here, and a novice obviously.

I suspect this is the HDCP Handshake that is not working properly. Unfortunately thats a common problem. Try a different HDMI cable. Also make sure that you have the Denon HDMI out turned on

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Thanks for the response tonyvdb, I will check i will make sure everything is turned on properly, try a new cord, and if that all fails, look into fixing the HDCP issue.
