have you tried hdmi and optical from your tv to your surround sound

If you only have 1 optical input on your surround system, best way I have found (with my brother's setup) is :-

PS3 ->TV = HDMI
SKY -> TV = SCART or HDMI (depending on what outputs you have of course)
TV -> SURROUND = OPTICAL

Just remember that you have to also tell the devices in the SETTINGS sometimes what you are using for output eg. TV set to optical out. anyway hope that helps.
