    Hi not sure of the particular kit your using apart from the PS3 but usually all of the connections (hdmi, digital coax, digital optical) support at least 5.1 sound. I know on the PS3 that to get 7.1 sound you have to use the hdmi connection as digital optical only supports 5.1 (or at least did when I set my system up a while ago). You have to be careful sometimes as although amps have hdmi in and out connections they sometimes only support video and not audio so they are acting like a video only hdmi switch to allow two devices to be connected to one hdmi connector on the tv. I have my PS3 connected to my tv with hdmi for video and sound but also have it connected to my amp with digital optical when I want surround sound. I have the same setup with my home theatre pc and my virgin box. You might also have to make sure you have setup each device to output surround sound and not just stereo as it doesn't always happen automatically. Hope some of that helps
