Can anyone pls tell me how best to wire up my home entertainment system.....?????

I have a home cinema system, a sky+ box, a xbox and tv. All 4 pieces of equipment have a optical out.

To get surround sound through and whilst using the xbox and sky+box will i need to use a optical switch box and wire each device individually using an optical cable.....?????


will one optical cable from my TV to my surround sound system do the job. Will this then play whats playing through my TV in surround sound 5.1......???

You haven't provided enough details about what you have, if I were you I would post this question in the AV forums

But provide make & model of home cinema, & TV.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

The simple answer is anything coming out of your TV is what you want coming out of your Sound system.

Everything else would be connected to the TV via HDMI or Component cables to get surround sound to the TV from them.
