Hi
This is my setup

Panasonic TH-P50U20Z plasma  connected to a Panasonic DMR-XW380 DVD/HD Recorder.

I am thinking of getting a Panasonic DVD Home Theatre SC-XH50GN-K to add to my system.

So when I read the DMR's manual it tells me that I connect the DMR's  HDMI out to the Home Theatres HDMI in..........then the Home Theatres HDMI out to the Plasma's HDMI in.

Does this sound correct and does anyone know if the Panasonic DVD Home Theatre SC-XH50GN-K actually has a HDMI in socket ?

The Panasonic site only mentions a HDMI out socket 

Thanks
Richard

no sc-xh50 doesnt have hdmi in, you will need to use optical out from dmr-xw380 to optical in on the hometheatre.

Hi
Thanks for that info.
So will using the optical sockets give me the same quality as using an HDMI socket?

Or should I be looking for some other set-up such as an amplifier rather than this Home Theatre?

I mean I can already play DVDs on the DRM so it seemed a waste to have to by a Home Theatre DVD as well just to get the a 5.1 type sound system.

As you can see I know very little about home audio.

Thanks
Richard

Audio quality would be same because your recorder isnt outputting HD audio.
I would just get a nice Amp+speaker package according to your budget.
Such as http://www.sony.co.nz/product/ht-ddwg700
Yamaha, Polk, Klipsch, Jamo, Onkyo also have packages in similar price range
