SONY STRDG820 Amp / Samsung BP1500 BluRay - Plugging it in and hearing it


Standard Member
Hi, please excuse the noobie question....

I have a Samsung LE40M LCD TV and a Panasonic all in one DVD Amp. It's time to upgrade the DVD to BluRay and then consequently the amp.

At the moment I'm looking at the Samsung BD1500 and the Sony STRDG820 (So there's my budget - £150 BluRay and £250 AV Receiver)

My questions are...

The TV is HDMI, as is the Amp and BluRay but my Sky+ isn't (nor is the Wii) and I'm assuming I plug all the kit into the AV receiver and then run the HDMI to the TV.

Do I need to run anything else or will the HDMI carry the analogue signals from the Sky+ via the receiver?

Will the audio be carried to the TV also? or will it only play out of the speakers connected to the amp?

Thanks for your help in advance....
