Recently joined member here, just introduced myself over on the introductions thread - so here are my questions that I need some answers too
So I've finally purchased my very first TV and Xbox 360 - very happy with the setup, but I'm looking at getting setup with some more awesome, hopefully you guys can push me in the right direction.
Righto, here's my current setup:
- Sinotech 39" Full HD LED TV
- Xbox 360 Slim
- Logitech Z506 5.1 Surround Speakers
- And a PC with a whole lot of media that I'm streaming around the house
With that out of the way, I'm looking at achieving a few things with my setup.
Currently the Xbox is connected directly to the speakers via an RCA connection and an HDMI link to the TV. The PC is hooked up via VGA (upgrading to HDMI soon) and the sound using 3.5mm jacks also directly on the speakers.
I'll also look at expanding my entertainment stuff to DSTV (it's like a South African alternative to cable or TiVo I think) Ideally what I'd like to achieve here is have all the sound running via a central sound source.
Do I need an AV receiver (i think what it's called) to connect all of the sources for audio through? I'm properly confused with this.
