Connect SkyHD , Laptop and PS3 to the amp with HDMI.
Connect your amp to the tv with HDMI.
If you want to output audio from the tv then you will also need either rca or optical link between tv and amp.

Thanks for that. Only asked because someone said i need optical from sky to amp for best sound.:thumbsup:
I thought you could only get 5.1 sound via the optical lead when you're watching sky hd,you can't get 5.1 via hdmi at the moment?i'm open to correction.

From a quick search on the SkyHD forum, you may be right. HDMI will carry audio from the HD box but not 5.1.
You then have to assign the hdmi and optical inputs to the sat button, easily done using the gui menu (I have just done similar with my 5300).

Thanks for that,

I have the amp set up correctly now for optical for sky hd and it shows dolby digital and the correct speaker setup on the display

but............

The sound is either muffled, no speech and generally bad, although it works intermittently .

Could anyone advise if this is the sky box, the amp or the optical cable's fault

thanks
