got optical running from tv to surround sound + HDMI to tvThat makes no sense.


i deleted that part :)

When you say splitter is it a Y splitter or an actual switch?
#3
a Y splitter will not work taking two signals to one input, they only work for taking a single source signal to two seperate inputs. (optical anyway)

The only way to do it properly with a single input Surround amp is to use a physical switch like this:

Optical Switch

yeh got a y splitter :(

Has the decoder/amp also got coaxial digital input and does the sky box have coaxial out.

The TV should not be going to decoder..(to simplify)

Ps3 optical out to decoder/amp/ input (however you only have one get a splitter that is selectable) I've got a couple of these http://****.co.uk/3-Way-Optical-Splitter-%2f-Switch-Toslink-Digital-Audio_W0QQitemZ360189288979QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=&rvr_id=&cguid=acebd8fa1290a0e20236ed16ffebe2a2


Anyways setup the splitter to go into the 1 input you have on decoder/amp.... then put ps3 in input one on splitter ....line up selector to input 1 (your ps3 will work)

put sky optical out into input 2 on splitter. Select input 2 to use sky etc.
