Hi guys,
I'm going to buy a SAMSUNG HT-X200R 2.1 Surround Sound DVD player and have read on a few forums about different ways to connect it to everything.

Some say just to connect to the TV with HDMI, some say to use an optical cable to connect the Sky+ box and others come up with variuos other methods.

Can anyone give me an idiot guide of the definitive way to connect everything up so that the DVD plays 2.1 from both Sky+ and regular TV (ie Freeview, Terrestrial) ?

BTW, I'm connecting to a Samsung 50" plasma, not sure of the model no as I'm at work at the mo
Cheers
