    Hi, I have just bought a Sony STR-DA 1200ES receiver, I want to connect the 3 named consoles to it, what would be the simplest way to do this?

    Need Help :lease: , New to the AV scene.

    At the moment i Have

    PS3 = HDMI, Sound = TV out but will be Optical.
    Xbox = Component In
    Wii = Component In

    What do i do with the sound channels for the component in

    Regards

    Chi

    I think the ES has a fe optical inputs, Use 1 for each of the consoles. You wont get any sound out of HDMI i dont think. Not with the 1200ES.

    Not sure about the Wii either, if it hasnt got optical out then it surely must have coax?

    You can plug them all in with Component, therefore only needing 1 Component cable going from the Sony 1200ES to your display.
    Or connect the PS3 with HDMI and the other two with Component, therefore needing 1 Component and 1 HDMI cable going from receiver to TV.

    For sound, PS3-Optical, Xbox 360-Optical and Wii-Stereo Phonos (as I believe it doesn't have a digital audio output; although I have never bothered finding this out for sure).

    Thanks for the help and info :thumbsup:

    Now PS3 = HDMI + OPTICAL
    XBOX = COMPONENT + OPTICAL
    Wii = COMPONENT + ANALOG AUDIO

    The biggest hurdle was to assign the correct video input to the audio, not as straight forward as I thought spent alot of time getting it right, alot of the time getting a miss match of video and audio But now sorted although still not perfect.

    Thanks again
