Hi
Thanks for posting. I have added an image to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/

Thanks Andy

Great price but no optical link so won't be able to connect a PS3 which is what I'm looking for.

Voted cold because Samsung didn't care when my lightly-used HT-DB120 system died with a 'PROTECT' message when it was just over two years old. Googling revealed others reporting the same fault.

I'm looking for a reasonably prices surround sound with an optical out to connect to my PS3 and XBOX 360 as well. Bought one online about 2 1/2 years ago and didn't realise it didn't have an optical output. The best sound I can get from it is 2.1.

I'm not very technical but I am after a new surround sound thingy. :oops:
Can my tv and sky+ be plugged into this so that I get surround sound off them as well?
Any advise would be gratefully recieved:thumbsup:

Basically no, as general TV programmes are not broadcast in 5.1 so the best you will get would be 2.1, in other words stereo :thumbsup:

Thanks, I have repped you:)

This is how outdated I am..... at the moment, I have surround sound but it comes via my prologic jvc midi-system that is about 12 yrs old!!!!

I am after something that would replace my jvc (which is large and bulky). Would the OPs system do the same thing as my old jvc thing? Basically, I just can't stand listening to a tv when the sound just comes from the tv as it sounds so tinny ifkwim:?

For noisyassassin and cezne, I suggest you look into an entry-level separates system from Richer Sounds, e.g. a Yamaha RXV365 receiver (£149.95) and matching Yamaha NSP270 speaker package (£79.95). You can spend more, but you'll get better sound from an entry level separates system than an all-in-one like this.

I might be missing something but that price seems to be same as others? e.g. Dixons, Currys
#12
I know it says divx but does xvid fall into this.

Thanks
#13
one more thing how does it upscale if it does not have hdmi...

is it through the rgb component lead?

many thanks
#14
bit indifferent here, price is ok, but in terms of features its pretty dire

I was lucky enough to get the z310 for £40 from currys 6 months ago which i love

I have Samsung Bluray player (luckily nothing has gone wrong yet) that the internet is full of people who have broken theirs (within warranty) as a result of a firmware update and Samsung Uk is just not interested.

WITHIN WARRANTY!

Good price but not for me.

This is where I get confused, too. Sure scart can only send a Stereo signal, but doesn't the amp decoder upmix it into pro logic surround sound?

The mono Dolby Prologic centre and restricted range rear surround channel are encoded into the left and right stereo pair. Dolby 5.1, dts and newer surround sound technologies use separate digital channels (i.e. the 5; front left, front right, centre/dialogue, rear left, rear right) for each of the surround speakers, and a low-bandwidth channel (the .1) for the sub.

I'm saying this because I'm pretty certain if I watch Sky TV/Play Xbox and use the scart as the audio output (my stupid Nordmende TV has no AUX or digital audio outputs at all), that it's in surround sound. Actually, almost certainly, as when I play Forza 2, I can hear the cars approach from behind me...

XBox games are often designed to output Dolby 5.1 sound, but only if you've connected your console to a Dolby 5.1 surround decoder using a digital connection. That might degrade to Dolby Prologic if you only have an analogue stereo connection - I haven't tried. Broadcast movies may well have a Prologic surround soundtrack that survives the broadcast process.

Same with music via phono - vocals will be in the centre speaker and, percussion in the left and right and then occasional the saxophone (wind instrument) will be in the rear. Perhaps it's just my mind playing tricks, but I find it pretty impressive.

It is; hardly any CDs or MP3s are encoded with Prologic. Your surround system is misinterpreting bits of the stereo soundtrack as mono Prologic channels. If you like it, good luck to you, but it's not the way it was intended to be heard.

Have a read of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolby_Pro_Logic for the gory details! :-)

I had this for x mas i play the ps3 sound threw this via red and white aux cable (not supplied) from the tv to the dvd player rear. There is no scart socket on this nor is there a hdmi socket. There is a Yellow Video cable supplied and that is all! I have sound coming out of the tv and cinema speakers(aux) when i play ps3 which is great for cod2 and blu-rays. I have sound coming out of both tv and cinema speakers(aux) when i watch tv sky plus etc great for music channels. However when i watch a dvd on the player sound is only played threw the cinema speakers and not the tv (samsung) ! I hope this is usefull and if any one could explain why i have no sound from my tv during dvd's i'd be gratefull!

I have spent the momrning looking for a cheap starter system for myself, I am totally new to it but I Think the LG HT304SU is best buy at the moment with HDMI Output.

£117 delivered through dixons with 3% tcb.

Was going to get the Samsung above but apparently it wont let you play movies through USB and no HDMI.

WTF? That's bloody awful! Even cheapo DVD players usually provide RGB SCART output! My guess is that this product is intended for the US market where Y/Pb/Pr component is the norm.

The yellow composite video cable only supplies video to the TV. I've checked the manual to see if it has stereo phono audio output sockets, but according to page 11, it doesn't. If it did, you could connect that to phono audio input sockets on your TV, or get a 3 phono plug to SCART cable. Without an audio output on the player, or a SCART output, you'll never get sound from your TV when playing DVDs.

I'm sorry, I've tried reading the posts here but I got confused. Can someone please tell me, if I plug my xbox 360 in to this, will I get fantastic surround soundy goodness?
Thanks.

If you plug it into the stereo analogue 'AUX IN' sockets you might get some kind of surround sound, but it'll be far from "fantastic". Look for something with an HDMI *input* (e.g. http://www.richersounds.com/product/av-receivers/sony/strdh500/sony-strdh500 and a set of 5.1 speakers), or an optical input (but you'll also need an XBox360 Component HD AV cable or VGA HD AV Cable, which you may need to modify as per http://blog.wilcoxusa.net/?p=518 if you need to use the XBox360's HDMI output to drive your TV).

Sorry it's complicated; blame Microsoft for needlessly making it that way.

Thank you, your answer was 'fantastic' :thumbsup: So at the moment I have the red white and yellow leads going into my tv (I think these may be called component cables?). If I buy an amp with a HDMI input I can run the HDMI cable from the xbox to the amp and then to 5.1 speakers and that will give me surround sound? If I do this can I just leave the yellow component in the telly and continue to use it as normal (obviously without sound through the telly)?

Thank you again, J

Nope; Red and White are the Right and Left analogue audio channels respectively, whilst Yellow is Composite Video. If you have a Component HD AV cable already (i.e. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360componenthdcable/) then the Red, Green and Blue connectors are the 'component' video outputs. The plug that connects to the back of the XBox should allow you to connect an digital optical TOS lead (e.g. http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=44245) to an AV receiver with an appropriate matching input.

If I buy an amp with a HDMI input I can run the HDMI cable from the xbox to the amp and then to 5.1 speakers and that will give me surround sound? If I do this can I just leave the yellow component in the telly and continue to use it as normal (obviously without sound through the telly)?

Thank you again, J


I don't have an XBox 360, but from reading the links I gave, I imagine that would work if you modify your Component HD AV cable. Note that you would get better picture quality if your TV is able to use HDMI or the Component outputs (either directly, or after being passed through an AV receiver for switching purposes) rather than Composite Video.

EDIT: Apparently there are third-party RGB SCART cables with digital optical out; http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/741482/Joytech-XBox-360-Digital-AV-RGB-SCART-Cable/Product.html for example. If you don't have a HD TV, then that will suffice, together with any AV receiver with an optical input.
