    I am clueless about surround sound. I want to buy the sony davfx80 system, but I read that people were struggling to connect both their TV and xbox (or other gaming system) to get 5.1 surround? IS this true? Please note, my TV and cable box is NOT HD - its just a plain 27 inch sony wega, about 3.5 years old. Thanks for any help.

    This system offers both an optical input and a digital coax input as well as two analog L/R inputs for audio. This is more than sufficient to connect your Xbox and tv to the unit. However, for the Xbox you will need at least the 'Advanced AV Pack' here is a link to one on the Xbox site, they are also on Ebay for much less:
    This will give you the optical out you need to get 5.1 from the Xbox.
    Unless your cable box has a digital output, you will need to use a pair of RCA audio cables to get sound into the davfx80 from the cable box. This will not give you true 5.1 for the TV but you can use one of the sound modes on the system to simulate it. Most TV channels are not yet encoded in 5.1 yet anyways, so this is not a bad method of connection. If you list the model of the cable box here, I can tell you for sure. Good luck!
