Another question regarding hooking everything up....From reading it seems best to run my PS3, 360 and cable box directly to the CT100, then to my TV from there. Does this mean that I would have to run the sound bar all the time and only be able to get sound through it and not just the TV? As mentioned I live in a condo and I wouldn't need the surround/bass at all times.

A: Correct, best route to do things, HDMI for easiest setup in my opinion.

A: Well I don't recommend having the speakers and CT100 on at the same time (sound with both). Reason being is because most soundbars produce their surround by using cross canceling delay. This means that the sound coming out of the CT100 will be delayed a second or two in order to split into different channels to produce 5.1 or 7.1 (or 6.1) surround sound. It's not noticeable at all.. until you have the TV speakers on at the same time, you get a somewhat echoing effect (TV does sound and CT100's sound follows a second or two after) that just doesn't sound natural. You can however, just have the HDMI Control: ON in order to have switching. What this means (when it comes to HDMI Control: ON) is that when the CT100 is on, sound will be outputted from the CT100. Now when the CT100 is turn OFF, or in this case "Standby" (via HDMI Control: ON), the CT100 passes all sound through itself to the TV... so you get sound out of the TV speakers. I can't vouch on how/if it works due to me being "Bravia Synced" but I was told this is possible.
