get a nice decent surround sound ie like the sony dav260 make sure it has optical and then connect the ps3 and 360 via optical this is what i have done works great:thumbsup: you will also need a toslink optical switch box around £8 on amazon a a couple of optical cables

(sorry for hi-jack) but... on setups like that, would I need to connect a 360 to the dvd player that comes with it, or do things connect to the speaker system seperately ?

Sell the PS3 and spend the takings on a decent surround system from Richer Sounds.

Looks good, (Given rep) but some bad reviews, was checking on dealextreme or 7dayshop, they don't have any (pity)
If anyone gotten any others link would be great before I buy the amazon one..!

reserse it then sell the 360


I'll just wait on funds, no matter. See if I can get it anywhere else cheaper in the mean time. Bought a HD drive for the 360 so would rather keep that too.:thumbsup:

Rep Back. Will be looking into this not this month maybe next pay months pay day.

PS, On there website, not really clear if its
1 input (PS3) to 2 output (speakers) or
2 input (PS3 +360) to 1 output speakers.
(Other website in google shopping says it will work but 2nd devise has to be powered off)
I have emailed them for 100% answer on this.

Will update as soon as get answer..!
PS thanks for REP

If you want the best out of blu-ray, it might be worth saving a bit longer and going for something with HD pass-thru (like the onyko 606...but cheaper..) and a set of speakers. It would seriously make the difference.

yes thats the unit i have its amazing the base is great espically on cod 4 i have my 360 and ps3 both connect to my tv my 360 is conneccted via component and the ps3 connected via hdmi both 360 and ps3 are connected to my toslink optical 3 way switch box and then connected the switch box to the sony dav260

so when i play my ps3 all i need to do is switch the switch box to the correct toslink port an i have 5.1 on the ps3 and when i have the 360 on switch the tos switch to the other port and 5.1 again its really easy to set up

he is a link to the toslink box this one comes with 3 optical cables but u may find cheaper elsewere
