I haven't set it up yet as I was uncertain, I have one hdmi port on back of receiver, its a HTIB (home theater in a box) so its not a very expensive unit, so how would I connect my ps3 to the receiver (hdmi)?
If so then how do I connect the receiver to the tv? Do I need to get something else to assist in this process?

Just one HDMI port? Is it in or out? That's odd, I would think it would have at least 2, an in and an out...
You could connect your PS3 to the tv via hdmi for video, then use another cable to connect it to your receiver for audio, such as an optic cable. Then you would just have to switch the source on both your tv and your receiver when going back and forth between cable tv and ps3...

Your receiver only has one HDMI input and one Toslink/optical input.
The only way to do this would be to connect your PS3 via HDMI to your TV and then wire your TV's optical audio output to your receiver's optical input.
It will be a little funky, but it will work. You will have to control your PS3 audio by changing it in two places, rather than one (your TV to select PS3 video, and then your receiver for PS3 audio).
Don't know if you really need the 3D Blu-ray player since your PS3 already does that and more.
Also, you would need to have your TV on even if you are not using it. For example, if you want to listen to music (from a CD) via your PS3, your TV will have to be on in order for your receiver to get the audio signal.
Any additional devices, such as XBox, Wii, Satellite or Cable receiver, should also be connected via HDMI to your TV rather than your receiver.
