    Hi, im a home cinema virgin :D I've had an all in one system for about 2 years and i think its about time i joined the world of av receivers. I have bought the Q ACOUSTICS 1010I speaker package and im looking to buy either the Sony STRDG520 or the Onkyo HT-R518, i know these probably arn't the best but im on a budget and its just to get me started. I would love it if you could give me your advice and views on which one would be best. I will be connecting my PS3 and sky HD. I would also like to know what is the best way to connect my PS3 and sky HD for audio, digital optical or digital coaxial. Thank you very much Dan.
    :lease: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not sure about those models, but for your other question:

    Ps3 doesn't have a coax output so you will have to use optical. SkyHD (if its not a thomson) will have the choice, but there should be no difference as its the same signal outputting on both.
