Wonder if anyone can help - got this tv (http: //www.johnlewis.com/231344917/Product.aspx) and want to purchase surround sound to use with Sky (Grey sky+ box)

How would I go about this? TV only has 2 HDMI ports, 1 scart connection (which sky is using), USB port and headphone jack - none of the yellow, white and red connectors

Cheers

the sky box has the red/white connectors

what you could buy is an all in one 5.1 system from panasonic or samsung or lg that has the amp built into the dvd player via hdmi to tv and then use phono to sky,however these systems are a bit fluffy with loose sound and passive sub, or go the receiver route.

Sky+ boxes usually have optical out to carry multi channel sound. Stereo RED/WHITE will not carry surround sound, only stereo. Look for any sound system that can take an optical input.

With SKY+ or SKY+ HD it doesn't matter what connection you make to your TV only the Optical (or Coaxial) Digital Audio Output on the SKY box's carry a 5.1 signal.

What will suit you in terms of a Surround Sound System will be dependent on Room Size and Layout, style of 'acceptable' Speaker, what other Source devices you have and Budget!

That sounds great - are you aware of any good systems for under £100 or is this not possible?

With such a tight budget I'd be forgetting about Surround Sound and aiming for a decent Stereo system.

I'd look to the likes of Richer Sounds and see what Hi-Fi Amp and Speaker set I could afford/live with in the Sale section.
