    Wiring the TV/XBox/Tivo/Surround Sound/Blu Ray player etc etc.

    This is going to sound really dumb but how do I go about wiring it all up?

    I'll explain.

    I used to have this.


    So TiVo into the Hdmi, Xbox into the Component and DVD into the SCART.

    Now I want to get this....
    http://www.richersounds.com/product/speaker-packages/onkyo/htx22hdx/onky-htx22hdx-blk

    and add a blu ray player. How do I go about wiring it up so the speakers can be used for the TiVo and blu ray player. Do I have a problem because I've only got one HDMI slot?

    So I plug the Blu Ray and Tivo into the speakers and then the speakers into the TV?

    I really don't understand it all.

    Every time I see how cheap 32" LCD's are now I wail about how much my Bravia was when I got it.

    Then I notice that they have sod all connectivity and feel boss. V+HD, PS3, and Laptop all hooked up with a spare still begging. Probably use that for the slingbox one day, when I can be bothered.

    Now you're lucky if you get 2! Weak.

    Oh right, simple. So do I need to have the speakers switched on any time I want the TV on? So I'll just have the power cord and a HDMI cable going to the TV if I get a HDMI cable for the Xbox.

    Yup, all you need to do is connect the main unit to the TV with HDMI.

    Leave it on and switch inputs as you go.

    Its either that or a new TV. This essentially saves you money by adding functionality to your TV.

    Why are you getting that? Just get an amp package.

    Similar price, but more speakers / connections.

    Because I know nothing about Home audio/cinema/tvs and things.

    I got a hole to fill and it fits! It makes noise, I don't want 5.1 as I can't be bothered to chase the walls out for the other speakers.

    What should I be getting?

    If you don't want 5.1, stick with that.

    Onkyo is a good brand, I have an Onkyo amp, sub and speakers.

    Quality British amplifier and Bookshelf speakers (if you can't use floorstanders).

    Quite.

    It's a term for any speaker which isn't a floor-stander. Many can be wall mounted. Seems as if you're fuly sold on the Onkyo though.

    Nothing wrong with tham I'd imagine. Personally I steer clear of such all-in-one boxes, but if the shoe fits, wear it.

    Tbh, it gets good reviews, fits in the gap i had in mind and does what I need? What would you get for the same budget?
