Do you wan the suround sound to play sound for what the tv is displaying or just the ps3

for just ps3

connect hdmi to ps3 and tv
connect optical to ps3 and suround sound
change video settings to hdmi
change sound settings to optical
it asks to set settings automatically you have tyo doo it manually

if you want to play every thing that tv displays then
connect ps3 to tv with hdmi
connect suround sound with hdmi to tv
(this might not work)
if it dont work then

connect ps3 to tv with hdmi
and your tv should have sound out or something along those lines it should be two phono plugs in the back of the tv connect that to the suround sound

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

sounds like you are going to have to get the component cables for the PS3, you can get them on amazon, the only thing about the component cables is that the quality cant go as high as the HDMI cable but its close. but thats the only way i can tell you to have surround sound with your PS3

Ps3


Hi bazza1945,

The answer would be a yes, as long as the model of your playstation 3 has what's called a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. As far as I know all of the PS3 has this type of connector at the back of the unit near the LAN port and AV port.

The next thing you need to check though is if you surround sound system has a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. If it does, then you're all set. All you need to do is buy the necessary cable to connect the PS3 to your home theater/surround sound system.

For more information you can check your PS3 user manual or view it online at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Manuals/PS3

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
