Connecting sky+hd, Samsung 8000 and Pioneer 56 amp


Standard Member
I have just purchased a Pioneer 56 amp and want to know how I can connect it to my Samsung 8000 tv and Thomson Sky+HD box, which has only one HDMI output. I don't want to have to switch the amp on all the time as my wife doesn't want to bother with my toys! Any help please?

Connect HDMI direct to the TV and separately to the amp via digital cable (usually optical). When you want to use the amp + speakers, turn the TV volume down.
