    Hi all!
    i am in no way an expert in any of this and any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Could somebody please help me as i feel that i am now out of my depth!!!
    I want to set up a home cinema system--i have not bought any items yet however trying to buy them has left me feeling like i am drowning in all the options.

    Here is what i want to include/connect:
    about a 40inch lcd tv
    PS3
    Virgin V+ box
    Surround sound 5:1
    media player

    i keep seeing lots of home cinema deals etc but am unsure of what meets my needs.

    Questions
    will i need a HDMI switcher or can an av amp take care of this?
    will i need an extra dvd player or will the PS3 be enough?

    could somebody please take me under their wing recommend what i should buy!!

    Depending on the AV amp you buy (if it's got enough HDMI inputs) then it will switch for you. You can also connect your HDMI sources to your TV (if it has enough sources) but connect the audio to your AV amp with an optical cable.

    PS3 is good enough for a DVD player - I don't use my DVD player at all anymore.

    If you want suggestions for what to buy, you need to give budgets.
