Question about Panasonic Flat Panel Televisions
While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.
Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.
In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.
Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.
Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Ok, here's the deal. You can have sound being putout from hdmi coming from one of those sharp units, but it just depends on how you are connected. If you are using a digital audio output, from the tv, it wont push out the sound the way that it should. You will have to downgrade to using audio composite cables to connect to your external speaker system from the audio ouputs, not the digital audio outputs. Its not designed to push out sound from an hdmi cable. The BEST way to have this setup is to run your sound directly from the cinema to the external audio source(leaving the hdmi cable in the tv).

You did okay but the phono sockets are not for Computer/TV use. Phono sockets should be checked int the manual on why they're there. If you have connected the Bravia to your computer, using the appropriate cable, then you should also purchase or request from the retailer where you purchased the TV a cable that has stereo phono plugs and, you didn't say what size phono sockets they are but I presume they are 3.5 mm. So, if the TV has 3.5 mm sockets, you purchase a cable with stereo 3.5 mm plugs. This is adequate for the stereo wav sound coming from the computer and going into the TV. Remember, having 2 Phono inputs on the TV doesn't mean anything. The TV could have a number of video inputs too, ATD AVT, AV, COMPONENT1, COMPONENT2, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3, etc. each have it's respective sound inputs for AV, S-VIDEO, DVD, Blue-Ray, etc. But for the computer there may be a different type of socket for it's sound inputs, normally it is the old phono sockets. Seek help from the retailer or else you could cook the circuitry of the TV's sound system.
