    Hi all. I wanted to buy a kit 5.1 Samsung HT-F4550 kit that hasn't only speakers but also a 3d bd player.
    I also use xbox and a laptop connected to TV which has 3 HDMI inputs (Lg 55la660s). On a photo take in internet a found that In the back of the HT kit there is an HDMI output and an optical input.
    Now my trouble/question: if I connect the TV via optical cable to the optical input of the samsung bluray and all my source directly connect into lg tv, can I hear different audio without buy an amplifier dedicated ? Many Thanks in advance
    Luca

    Sorry but I can't understand what you mean with WHAT...a little bit generic answer.
    MY CONFIGURATION:

    xbox------->Tv (via HDMI1 in)---------------------------------------------|
    LAPTOP----------> Tv(via HDMI2 in)-------------------------------------| OPTICAL OUT--------------------> BD Reader(Samsung HT-F4550)
    BD reader/(Samsung HT-F4550)-------> TV(Via HDMI3 in)---------|

    I Hope that this is more efficacious.

    I would like to know if this bluray reader (with i think a built-in amplifier) can manage with the optical line my sources.
    so If i put hdmi1 on tv can I hear XBOX from HT-F4550 sound system?
    if i put HDMI2 on TV can I hear LAPTOP from HT-F4550 sound system?
    if i put HDMI3 on TV can I hear brdisk from HT-F4550 sound system?

    Many Thanks

    Yes, but your TV only outputs 2.0 from incoming HDMI.

    All incoming HDMI signals, the audio leaves 2.0. Period.
