That will only transfer audio.
That Sony system does not have pass-through video so you need to connect the HDMI output from the ATV to your TV. The Sony system has an HDMI out for the DVD/Blu-ray player. That needs to be connected to your TV for viewing DVDs or Blu-rays. You'll need 2 HDMI inputs on your TV; one for the ATV and one for the Sony system.

I have the same issue but with a slightly different Sony Home Theatre System (BDV E870) and wondered if you, or anyone else, could point me in the direction of where the optical in / out slot is located on the Sony Blu Ray player, as it isn't that obvious to me upon initial review!

Have you tried using Serviio?
I use it on an iMac and play movies on a Sony TV or through a BDV-E370. Only pre-requisite is that your tv or bluray player are on the same network your mac is on.
