    Hi

    Im a bit new to this game so I needed a bit of advice. Recently purchased a Panasonic Tx32Lxd70, and was hoping to buy a surround system to go with it. Originally thought of an all-in-one dvd and surround e.g PANASONIC SCPT450EB , but then I was tempted to buy a stand alone amplifier and DVD player separately as the av receivers gave more connectivity options, e.g Sony ht-ddw790, namely the HDMI inputs. However upon further research I learnt it probably wasnt as simple as buying an av receiver and hooking it up to the TV via the HDMI input to receive the surround system, can anybody give me some help on this?.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I only have an integrated digital receiver, I bought the T.V to use as a PC monitor, to play on the xbox, and eventually to use with an upscaling dvd player.

    Well if your only wanting surround sound for dvd's, it should be fine

    dvd via hdmi to amp, amp via hdmi to tv, amp to speakers


    However if you want surround sound from your "intergrated digital receiver" in your tv to amp, your tv will need a optical output and your amp need a optical input (it maybe better to get yourself freeview box)

    hope this helps
