Hi there all. Basically, i am currently looking for an 'all in one' package (dvd player + speakers) so i can have my tv (and/or Sky), my PS2 and obviously my DVD player all playing true surround (by that i mean dolby digital). I understand that to get dolby digital (superior to dolby surround or pro logic II) i will have to use a digital optical cable. Would i have to use a digital optical cable for every separate thing? If so thats impossible as there isnt really any sub £500 all in one packages that do have 3 digital optical ins.....or am i missing the point here?

No, you are not missing the point. You do need to be able to handle the separate digital audio outs from your sources.

All you need is an all-in-one unit that has one optical input. You can then get a TOSLink 3-way optical switcher. e=Box.html
