Hi,

I wonder could anyone help?
I have a new TV coming this week (PDP-508XD) and I could do with some advice on how to connect it all up for the best.

Things to Remember:
1) My TV will not Output Digital audio when the Input is from HDMI.
2) To get the best Audio out my Amp from PS3 I want to HDMI to amp.
3) Amp only has 2 HDMI in and 1 out
4) Amp only has 2 Optical in
5) Not sure if Humax foxsat can do SD over component same time as HD over HDMI (i read the manual but didn't say).
I think the Scart O/P may stay at 576I no matter what you choose with the V-button!

I have attached two Pics, one with how I think it should be wired and a blank one for you to draw on.

Any help much appreciated
Thanks

From another angle I would NEVER put any video (HDMI) through a AV amp unless I was to gain something.
That something could be.
It's the only way to get DolbyHD.
I have run out of HDMI inputs on TV.
AV amp up-scales better.
WHY!
To watch ANYTHING the AV amp has to be switched on and that is not always suitable for everyone, i.e. I need to keep things very quiet as everyone else is in bed.

My DVD-PVR has built in freeview so their is only one HDMI Output for that box. It also upscales SD but if the freeview in the TV does it better I will probably watch built-in Tv freeview mostly (with RCA audio out) and just use the PVR for watching recorded freeview.

That is why I chose just to put the PS3 through it.
PS3 Outputs LinerPCM Multichannel only through HDMI.

Saying that, I coulden't tell any difference from Bitstream over Optical :suicide:

Hi Mr.Glass. :)
If you can make use of HD audio from the PS3 :cool: then do it :smashin: HDMI out from the player to the amp and then out via HDMI to your display. :)
All the best.
