Evening/Morning all, you helpful people. Maybe you might be able to help me out with some old school Non-HDMI connections.

My freeview box comes in (through boosters and switches) to a Panasonic HDD DMR-EX769. This is Scarted to a Samsung Plasma P42D4S with NO side speakers (I know , very helpful), so am hoping to run the sound through my Sony STR-DG700 6.1 amp.

Have various Phono and RGB cables, plus a digital optical cable between the HDD and the amp.
Have tried many different cable arrangements and settings , but cannot get 2 channel or 5.1 out of the speakers (which are wired up to spec).
Any thoughts?
Many thanks

Mike & Brian : thanks VV Much for all your helpful info here. The 2 channel sound from the Samsung is excellent through the Sony speakers - definately a more powerful step-up.

Dont the tuners work off old analog signal information - and since everyones digital these days, all those channels would be blank?

With switchers, i have to keep in mind integrating my multiregion player & Xbox (both original and 360) - at the moment, they're working well off the speakers.

An interesting aside, though - my ipod Nano and Composite AV , which output signal the Panasonic could read off AV3, is now soundless. Running the ipod through the AV on the Samsung sorts out the sound, but the Panasonic does not record the Samsung output, just the TV signal (on AV2). Do i need a further Scart switcher to rectify this?
Cheers.
