A stereo 2 phono lead input from a sky box will have dolby pro logic surround info on it (when its a surround programme of course)

The Sony should then process this and give sound on the centre and rears too.

The DAVS300 does'nt have an optic/coax digital input so you can't have dolby digital from an external source- only from its own DVD player

The first two links you've probalbly seen before, they show conncections and connectors. I looked at pictures of your system and it would appear that the only input for video and audio is RCA. I think it has s-video for video only(s-video slightly better). The third link is the only way I can see to get what you are asking. It is an HDMI to RCA adaptor. You would use an HDMI cable out from your set top box to the adaptor then, RCA cables to your DAV-S300. It's the only way I can see. Hope this helps.

How do i connect to sky hd and sony kdl 40w 4710 and dav-is10 i have hdmi from skyhd to tv and hdmi from home cinema to tv what else is required as i cant get surround sound from tv


you need a Optical audio cable, run this from the back of your Sky HD box to the Surround sound. Not all Broadcast are transmitted in DD so press your i button on the sky remote and you will see this on the yellow bar above the program information if it is..

Might be worth running a set of White and Red audio cable from the HD box to the Surround sound as well that way you can just mute your telly and have the lot coming through the surround sound system.

Hope this clears things up for you

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers
