    hi i recently bought a 32 inch sharp aquos, i am looking for a half decent half cheap surround sound to use with it. it will be mainly used for games on the ps3 and watching films on sky digital. i have a black diamond dvd player with surround sound on it but it only plays the surround sound when watching dvds, any other time it only plays sound out of the front left and right speakers and the sub. any help would be much appreciated

    Do you have your PS3/Sky connected to it, and if so how (stereo RCA, optical, HDMI?). It will only play surround if it is getting a 5.1 signal.

    Also, if are looking to replace it what kind of budget do you have?

    the ps3 is connected via hdmi cable to the tv, the dvd player is connected to the sky box with a scart lead and the sky is then connected to the tv with a scart lead aswell. there is rca outlets from the tv and i was wondering if i connected them to a 5.1 setup would it convert it to surround sound?
