Install Question - AV amp, DVD, PS3, SKY, Xbox360


Active Member
Hi, i am looking at getting a panasonic TH42PZ700 very soon and im wondering what would be the best way to connect up the rest of my gear so i can order correct cables.

I have a PS3, Xbox360, DVD player and Sky+, the PS3 will be on HDMI and the Xbox on Component input. The dvd player will be on HDMI too. The Sky+ box will be on scart but now im a little stuck where to go next, i have a Yamaha AV amp thats a little old (pre HDMI) and it powers my 5.1 surround sound. I have an optical output possibility from the TV which i will be putting to the amp.

Now, the sky box, ps3 and dvd player all have digital audio outputs but if they are going out through the optical of the TV, do i need to connect those devices seperatley to the amp or will they work ok going through the TV?

Hope this makes sense to someone that can help. (and that iv posted it in the right section!)


What model is the YAM amp ?
