    Is there any way 5.1 surround sound can be achieved?

    What leads are required etc?? A few of the games I have bought say Dolby on them, ie Getaway, Black Monday.

    Any help appreciated

    Not sure many PS2 games have full 5.1, mainly Pro logic 2. Which is a Pseudo 5.1 where info is secreted in a 2 channel signal. I think.

    you need to buy a standard optical digital lead and plug it into the digital port on the back of the ps2.
    Plug the other end into your HC amp or processor that should be 5.1 enabled.

    The video lead (composite, s-video or component) can be routed directly to your monitor/pj or via your HC amp or processor.

    I have my ps2 and x-box running through my Tag and the sound is fantastic.

    its not true 5.1 though, as has been mentioned above.
    alot of games only run in some sort of pro logic mode or 4.1 without the centre channel(GTA:SA for instance)

    Right i want surround sound mainly for xbox, ps2 and watching footy, movies etc on sky.

    Also, maybe for my pc as well.

    Someone said i should get creative labs speakers and then the DDTS-100 decoder. Is that wise? I know next to nothing about surround sound tbh.

    I bought a JVC 5.1 DVD player with speakers. I can use it for the Football, Movies and now my PS2! :)

    If you have Analog in, on the DVD player this can be connected to your Sky box.
