Connecting Surround Sound to Sky HD Box - Advice Needed Please.

Found 3rd Dec 2011
Hi All,

Ive just purchased a Samsung Surround Sound HT-C555 (2nd hand)and I want to connect it to my Sky HD Box. Being non technical, I need to know what cable/lead do I need to be able to hear Sky through the Surround Sound Speakers?

Also, one of the cables needs replacing that goes in one of the rear speakers, is this as simple as taking it along to Maplin or similar and asking for one?

Many Thanks

on both.

How does the wire connect to the speaker?
I would buy an Optical Cable. This will connect into your Surround Sound Optical Input and go directly into your Sky box.

Do I connect the leads from SKY box to Surround Sound DVD?

The wire connects by clicking into the red and black connectors in the rear of the speaker unit.
