Looking for some advise pls. Want to buy a home theatre system to use with a PS3 and Samsung LCD.
1 - Play PS3 games and Blu-Ray DVD with surround sound (5:1)
2 - Watch TV/Cable also using the speakers (prob only be 2:1 right? But still be better than TV speakers alone)
Understand the newer high end systems have HDMI in and out which could do this but dont want to spend too much cash. How much quality will I sacrifice by connecting audio from PS3 to home theatre via optical instead of HDMI? Can anyone suggest a good system that meets my needs? Also some pointers on how to set this up would be appreciated - was thinking:
PS3 via HDMI direct to TV
PS3 (audio) via optical to Home theatre
Home theatre via optical to TV?
