    Hi guys. Im looking at buying one of these:

    http://www.consumer.philips.com/con...&proxybuster=KCEJTRNM3GNQHJ0RMRCSHQVHKFSESI5P

    The only thing is i'll be buying it second hand (I dont have too much money!) and according to the seller the speakers dont work, he assumes its a faulty capacitor.

    I would like to use it for wathcing tv and running an xbox 360.

    Im also looking to buy a 5.1 sound system, with atleast an optical input (for the xbox 360). So i know i can have sound for the xbox. But the question is can i have sound for watching tv?

    If you've looked at the link above the specification for connectivity is:


    Connectivity
    Ext 1 Scart : Audio L/R, CVBS in/out, RGB
    Ext 2 Scart : Audio L/R, CVBS in/out, S video in
    Other connections : Antenna IEC75
    Front / Side connections : CVBS in, Headphone out, S-Video in, Audio L/R in
    AV 3 : DVI-I with HDCP, Audio-in mini jack 3.5mm
    Number of scarts : 2


    Forgive me for being not too technically minded, but can i connect speakers upto the tv? As i dont see and audio out?

    Many thanks
    Rich

    26" LCD HD ready flat TV Crystal Clear III - i think that sort of gives it away? or is this information incorrect?

    i thought the AV 3 : DVI-I with HDCP was something to do with it?

    as for the speakers. does anyone know of any 5.1 speaker systems that have an input for optical (xbox 360) and a scart socket (tv) ?

    cheers
