Default Confusion around Surround Sound

Hi All,

New to the forum and confused about surround sound really.

So ill start at the beginning, when i first bought my surround sound i was told optic is the best so i bought myself an optic cable, i then placed this from the surround sound to the DVD box that came with the surround sound - this worked BUT i didnt get the quality expected when watching sky or playstation. When i play a DVD direct into the surround sound the quality is amazing, the bass sounds good and the general sound is amazing. But through my playstation and sky it was rubbish.

So i then put the optic cable to sky, this then made sky sound good but everything else rubbish other than DVD

Is there a way to make everything run through the surround sound so i dont need to keep changing cables etc?

IF this all makes sense


So basically i want my surround sound to sound amazing through TV, Sky, Playstation and DVD player. I can do this atm but i have to keep changing optic cable from each of them to the one im using and this is getting a tad annoying so surely theres a way to do it properly

Thanks all appreciate any help :-)

I would try one of these

It will allow you to connect multiple optical cables to the single input on your HTIB.
