I got a new tv and cinima system over xmas.
The Tv is set up with sky tv going in the back and runs on channel AV2
The cinema system is connected through a HDMI cable and is playing dvds no probs on the HDMI channel.
This is the problem, How do i watch TV using the speaker system?
I have pressed the TV button on the cinema remote, but nothing happens?
Any help would be massivley appricaited

You need audio cables to go from the surround sound to either the TV or sky box.

I'm sure you could get a HDMI adapter, one that runs both HDMI cables into 1, if you get what I mean.

I have seen those 3 way adapters on play. So if i was to order that and another hdmi cable, and have one running from xbox to adapter which is pluged into the cinema system(dvd bit) and then the other one linked to the tv it would be all good? Like a triangle i guess?

Doent your tv have component inputs. i.e. red green and blue rca's???? if so connect your xbox to here using rgb cable, then an optical cable from the xbox to the surround sound for the 5.1 audio.

back of the tv there will be an output

theres an easier way to do this, is your surround amp able to take the hdmi from the xbox in? if so just use that it sends picture and dolby digital 5.1 through the hdmi.

if the surround amp does not have a hdmi input you can still use hdmi to the tv and use optical to the surround amp with one of these leads

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Official-XBOX-360-HDMI-Cable-Optical-Audio-Dongle_W0QQitemZ180319428131QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_VideoGames_VideoGameAccessories_VideoGameAccessories_JN?hash=item180319428131&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1301|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

also i doubt your tv will accept a 1080p signal through componant cables as most will not so you will need to set it to 1080i.

easiest soloution would be xbox to hdmi splitter to tv and plug watever else needs to go into the splitter box through hdmi.

when you buy a splitter box make sure you get one that auto selects rather than manualy pressing a switch, and no dont ask the people in currys they are shit lol.

would have helped if you posted make and model of your tv and av system.
