    Hi Guys,

    Wondering if I can call on your collective expertise to help a novice like me (If I'm on the wrong forum please let me know).

    So I've moved into my newly purchased house, and I've finally splashed out and bought myself a new LCD TV and home entertainment system to add to the bits I've got already and I'm about to put some floorboards in and have my tv & speakers wallmounted .. and I'm looking at all these different connectors and thinking - ok what do I use to do what?

    Can you help, I've basically bought a 32" Philips 9832 LCD, the Denon 550SD home entertainment system to add to my Xbox (Using as a media center) and my soon to arrive Sky+ box. I'm attaching all the specs below and hoping someone with knowledge in these things can suggest what I should be connecting where, what cables I should buy to do so (For best results) and any general advice really.

    Many thanks in advance for taking time to look and help me in this exciting new adventure.
