I am hoping to purchase a Home Theatre System shortly. I was considering buying one with a dvd instead of separate amp purely on cost i.e. to buy with dvd is around £100 cheaper than amp alone. I do not intend to use the dvd at all, but simply want it to power the speakers. However, does anyone know how I would make the connections given the equipment listed below so that I get the surround capabilities out of all my equipment? Whenever I ask in the High St stores I get blank stares and some bizarre suggestions. If I did go for separate amp are my connection options any different. Hope someone can solve the puzzle. Equipment being used - Panasonic PL1 t.v. Sky+ Satellite PVR, Panasonic DMR E30 DVD - Ram Recorder, Sony VCR. My connections are as follows - Sky+ TV Out > AV2 (RGB in) E30 and then E30 AV1 > TV (RGB in). VCR Line 2 scart > Sky+ VCR scart and finally Line 1 VCR scart > to remaining scart on TV.
