Ok. This is what I've got:

- Panasonic Plasma TV
- Panasonic Home Theatre System (HTS)
- My SKY HDi
- PS3

I have just recently purchased the the Panasonic products and got My SKY installed today :)
I'm starting to pull my hair out because I've spent the last 3 hours trying to set things up so i can watch My SKY and listen to it through the HTS. All to no avail.


My SKY is connected to the TV.
HTS is connected to the TV
PS3 connected to the (knee-bone :D) TV.

All with HDMI cables. AV cables available.

Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

Hi there, so your tv has an hdmi output that goes into you HTS input? you may find out need to connect your myski directly to you HTS and the same with your PS3 directly to your HTS. However it depend on what inputs your HTS accepts whether it accepts optical/coax or HDMI input.

EDIT: If you could give us some model numbers on TV and HTS might be helpful

Yeah! Someone got back! The Man!

TV (TH-P42S10Z) has 3 HDMi inputs. All used up by My SKY, HTS and PS3.

HTS (SA-PT170) has 1 HDMi hole labeled 'AV OUT'.

My SKY has 1 HDMi hole labeled 'S VIDEO OUT'.

Hope this helps :)

Red, White and yellow (AV?) inputs avail on My SKY and HTS.

Does the HTS have any coaxial SPDIF or optical inputs on it?
You will need to connect one of these cables from the MySky unit to the HTS to get the sound through it.
You could also just use left/right RCA (usually white/red) from MySky to HTS but this won't give you the best sound.

Hmmmm it gets a little technical I'm assuming that you want to be running Dolby Digital to your HTS. The problem is if your HTS only has one digital in it you will only be able to connect one device at a time and have to swap to get the signal from a different device. There is only one small possibility, and thats only if your tv will pass through the dobly digital signal from the HDMI inputs to the optical out on your tv, to my knowledge there isn't many / if any tv's which do this, they only pass out a two channel signal. (Someone please correct me if i'm wrong)
