    whats the best way to connect sky+ to my sony davs 550 for audio output.

    Sky + gets delivered tomorrow (have a Grundig digibox at the moment)

    I currently have a thor scart connecting digibox to tv (RGB) and have used fairly cheap audio interconnects from the digibox to the davs unit for sound.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Paul

    The best way is to use the optical ports. I believe that this is the only way to get true 5.1 from the Sky+ box to your 550.
