    the panasonic sound system, does it have hdmi input?

    if yes, you can send audio through hdmi to the panasonic system and then from the panasonic, output video signal via hdmi to the tv

    I have a genius way of giving you the perfect sound from your PS3(I'm not being sarcastic either), have a look in the classified section cuz I'm selling a gamer chair. Once you plug in, all you can hear is the sound of the game. There is a sub in the back of the chair and speakers eitherside of your head.

    I have my PS3 hooked up to a Samsung LCD TV via HDMI only (the HDMI carries the sound to the TV too). I then have my TV Phono L-R analogue audio out plugged into my Phillips 5.1 system phono input and I get perfect analogue surround sound.

    I also bought an optical cable only to realise that the Philips system had a digital coaxial input, so I'd need an adapter. Haven't gotten around to it yet, but to be honest the sound quality through the analogue input is more than sufficient...

    My PS3, Sky HD box and Wii are all connected via HDMI/ Component respectively, with audio channelled to the surround sound via the TV Audio Out. Works very nicely and no need to muck about with the surround sound unit, just the TV source.

    Cheers
