Sony DAV-IS10 - Connections

Hi,

I have just taken delivery of this system, quite happy so far, however, not sure what connections I need to get all of my kit connected, all I want is to connect my PS3 up which sit's next to it and the TV.

Basically I have a TV with ONE HDMI socket, at the moment I run HDMI from PS3 to TV, job done. I also bought a digital optical cable to go from the PS3 to the DAV-IS10 but I dont think this is enough, is it? I have at current borrowed the HDMI cable to go from the DAV-IS10 to the TV, but ideally I want to play things from the PS3 (Blue Ray) via the DAV-IS10...can this be done?

A little confused, any advice welcomed!

Thanks :)

If your TV has only 1 HDMI you could buy a switcher so you connect both the ps3's and sonys HDMI out to 1 input on TV

All you need to get surround sound from the PS3 is the optical cable. If you want to run Sky+ optical also you'll need to get a 2 into 1 optical adapter of some sort.

You needn't do anything at all with the IS10's HDMI connection

The original question was that he had only 1 HMDI but 2 sources

Thanks for all the replies, so I just need the optical connection? I have that already in place from the PS3 to the Sony. But what setting do I need the Sony on to pick up the PS3? I.e TV / DVD etc...Can't seem to suss it out?

Will save me a switcher and HDMI lead if i dont really need it!
