    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some help with this new setup I purchased, Im not very good with wiring and I am getting quite confused, quite quickly!!

    My Spec is as follows:

    PANASONIC SCHT880 Home Cinema System (All in One)
    32" LG LCD HD TV (2 Scarts)
    Sky +
    LG DVD Recorder
    XBox / PS2


    Ideally I want all of the above's sound to run through the surround sound, but I can't seem to get it going!

    What would the best setup wiring wise be?

    Also I'm having trouble getting any sound through the rear speakers, Im getting none at all. Yet the Front/Right/Center/Sub are working ok for TV.

    OK,

    PANASONIC SCHT880 Home Cinema System (All in One)

    connect to LG LCD TV with component video lead. These are the red, green and blue connections found on rear of Panny kit and should be on LG set. This will give great PQ from DVD.

    Then,

    Sky +

    connected to RGB capable scart socket with scart lead. Go into SKY set up, picture menu and ensure output set to RGB for best PQ from SKY. Daisy chain LG DVD recorder from second scart on SKY box, if that makes sense. Also, use optical digital connection for sound from SKY + box. OK so far?

    Finally, x-box or PS2 into second scart or s-video I would think. ALternatively, loop these through DVD recorder and SKy + into same scart socket.

    Try this see how you get on?

    Pete.

    Hi,

    All seems to be working great now - thanks for your help.

    I recently bought the Lord of The Rings Trilogy in Bangkok but they're region 3 (genuine dvd's) does anyone know a way to unlock either LG or Panasonic DVD players to play all regions?

    Thank

    nvm the multiregion bit. Figured it out :)

    Is it right that I don't get 5.1 using Sky+ and my other dvd player?
