    I'm sure you have all answered questions on a similar theme before but I have just ordered Sky+ (on the £99 deal) and I have only had the Sony and the Plasma a few weeks and would appreciate some help in achieving the optimum set-up. Obviously having laid out all this cash I want to get the best picture possible and utilise the 5.1 sound whenever possible.
    The equipment is:

    Pace Sky+ (don't know what input/outputs it has yet)

    Sony DAV-SC5 all-in-one - Inputs = Optical Digital In x 1, Analog in (3 x phono type) x 2 Outputs Analog out (3 x phono) x 1, Euro AV Scart (RGB capable) x 1

    Hitachi 42PD3000 Plasma - Inputs = AV1 Scart (VHS, S-VHS, Hi8) AV2/AV3 Scart (RGB), AV4 (Component input)

    The two set-ups I am considering at the moment are:

    Sky+ (Scart) to Sony (3 x phono Analog in) out (via Scart) to Hitach AV2 (Scart)
    Which is how I have my current set-up with standard digibox.


    Sky+ Scart straight to Hitachi AV2 plus Sky+ Optical digital link to Sony and Sony Scart to Hitachi AV3

    I am trying to find out which is going to be best so that I can make sure I have bought all the right leads in advance of the Sky+ installation

    Thanks for your help
