    Help with a home cinema system

    OK I'm looking for a home cinema system for my new flat. Any A/V gurus out there willing to provide some advice, hints, product recommendations for me?

    Basically I'm looking to buy a 5.1 surround blu ray home cinema system. Ideally I would like 2 front pillar speakers, with the rest being the smaller satellite ones.

    I also have a PS3 (which has optical out and HDMI) and a Media PC (currently with HDMI out) that I'd like to hook up to the speakers also.

    I'm not sure whether I would be better going for a model with 2 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI input and 1 optical input, or one with 2 optical inputs (which would then mean I'd prob need to change the sound card on the PC).

    If you would care to recommend any products to me I would also appreciate it. Budget is about £250 to £500.

    Hope some of you can help! thanks in advance

    Infact as long as it has an optical in for PS3 and a 3.5mm jack for PC connection then that would suffice
