Hello, I'm trying to get an optimal setup here for a living room, I'll be getting a 5.1 receiver/blu-ray system (Haven't decided on one yet, don't think it matters though), and I'm just wondering the best way to connect my devices (Xbox, Sky, etc) for them all to have 5.1 ... What is the best way to connect them so I can play Xbox, watch Sky and Blu-ray's, and get 5.1 surround sound? What is the best way?
Would this work... connect the devices to the TV via HDMI, and then just connect the receiver to the TV via the TV's HDMI output - can I still get DD HD etc even though the sound is going through the TV from the devices and back to the receiver? Is there the same audio quality as if the devices were directly connected to the receiver? No degradation just because the audio is taken from the TV?
Any help appreciated.
