    Not sure if this is the correct forum but here goes.

    I have searched these forums and have found bits and pieces but was hoping someone could clarify and summarise things for me.
    I have a philips 28in CRT, xbox and VCR. I am about to purchase the Sony HT-DDW760 home cinema system, sky+ and DVD recorder (probably Sony RDR-GX300/700m, other recommendations welcome)
    I will be getting rid of the VCR but everything else stays.
    I will be mainly recording from sky onto sky+ HD and then recording to DVD and using DVD for playback. I would also like to route sky+, DVD and xbox thru home cinema system.
    I am not fully sure how best to connect the whole thing can someone help in terms of what type of connections to use and what sequence to connect them in?

    generally SKY+>DVDR>TV via RGB can run XBOX RGB into SKY+ AV2 (VCR scart ) as well if TV has only 1 RGB scart.....
    for sound you need 2 optical inputs on HC system one for SKY+ one for XBOX
