Hey guys I want to buy a 5.1 cinema system for my panasonic TX-L42E6B

Not sure what system to buy yet I am on a very limited budget only £150.

am I right in thinking my xbox one, ps4 and sky all connect to the tv via hdmi, and then I connect my tv to the cinema system via optical for the 5.1?

thanks!

That hookup will work but make sure the TV will output 5.1 (some will only output 2.0). Check the audio setup menu and see if there are any choices.
If it only outputs 2.0 then you will need to use a 5.1 system with multiple HDMI inputs or an outboard HDMI switch that extracts the audio before the TV like this:
