      Sky+ Optical Cable

      Hi, simple question for you techies out there.

      I have my sky+ box (latest model) connected to my tv through a scart cable.

      I intend to connect my sky+ box to my 5.1 amp through a optical cable.

      Would i get sound from amp speakers alone, or will i hear sound from tv also?

      (I actually want to get sound from both (Amp speakers & TV)

      What if i connected optical lead from amp straight to TV? would sound suffer?

      Also, if broadcast is not 5.1, will i still get sound from all 5 amp speakers?

      Thanks alot guys, and gals!

      Yes, audio will also be sent to the TV, so turn those speakers off if possible..

      I really can't see the point of having a pair of stereo speakers in the middle of a 5.1 setup ?
