    My Surround system is a Sony DAV DZ680 http://www.sony.co.uk/product/hcs-surround...=TechnicalSpecs
    I've connected my PS3 to it via optical.

    Now the fat question, is there any way to connect my wii to it?
    I've connected my wii currently thru component cables into my LED-TV Samsung Series 6, 46".

    Normally there's an audio out on the TV, you just plug it into the AMP. It's why I do on mine.

    Connect the red and white phono (right/left audio) from the component cable direct into the aux in phono sockets on your amp. If it uses 3.5mm stereo jack then get a twin phono to 3.5mm adaptor.*

    Using the optical out on the tv can cause audio delay, and will degrade quality (which may not matter to you, but you'll want it sounding decent if you have a decent rig).

    thx for all answers... it was easily solved by connecting the optic from my tv to my surround system. [​IMG]

    the wii supports dolby pro logic 2 so you can just run the red and white audio straight into the reciever or pass through the tv......make sure you turn on dolby pro logic 2 decoding on inside your reciever or you wont be getting any surround sound....took me months to figure that last part out....now i got good surround for my wii
