Heres the situation.

My 40" Sony Bravia V Series has 1 HDMI port and my Panasonic home theatre system has only one optical audio input.

Some time in the near future i will have
1. PS3
2. MY Sky HDi
3. Freeview HD
4. PC (sometimes)

connected to the TV.

Obviously i would like them all connected with HDMI cables and the digital audio going to the home theatre system.

Also i am planning on getting a universal remote (for obvious reasons with that many remotes ) so it would be nice if that could control the splitter as well, so one with an ir reciever would be good.

The only thing i could find so far was something on jay car that looks to be a good option

Just wondering if anyone had used one or anything similar. Any suggestions.

A splitter would work, however i would suggest considering a reciever, since these tend to have 3 hdmi and 3 optical inputs, and you can change inputs easily. However they are expensive.

What model of V series??   I was under the impression that all V series had two or more.  i.e 40V300 has two at the rear

I have exactly the same set up and just brought the HDMI splitter detailed above from Jaycar, however I cannot get the optical audio out from the splitter to my LX600 phillips amp unit to work, which is frustrating. Any ideas?
