XB1 A/V hook-up scenarios?

For lots of people, hooking the cable box into the Xbox will be the obvious way to go. But what about folks with more complex home theater set-ups? Some questions:

1. If you use an AV receiver, should that be hooked into the Xbox pass through... and all the other equipment, including the cable box, hooked into the AVR?

2. Will the Xbox be able to control an AVR thorough it's IR blaster (say a Denon or Pioneer receiver) to change inputs, etc?

3. Many AVRs also have 1080p upscaling. How will the AVR and the XB1 work there? Will the Xbox handle it's own content and then just passes through any upscaling as is that comes from the AVR?

Any other questions or thoughts?

The functionality of the HDMI passthrough hasn't really been well elucidated. Maybe we'll hear something in the next week and a half, and if not I'm sure we'll find out at launch just what will work.
