Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

    Well HDMI gives the best video quality, 1080p and does it better than anything else. Even while bringing in sound. The sound out, that's more or less up to you. AV will actually stand 5.1 with decent clarity. Optical audio can do 7.1 also. I'd try your options and see what sounds the best for you.

    And yeah, the neighbor hates when we turn on Rockband. LOL We have alot of fun with the PS3. :)

    And your very welcome. Glad I could be of some assistance. :) I hope you like the PS3 and surround. Nothing beats it, specially with blu-ray movies! It's almost insane. I'd rather watch a blu-ray movie then go to the theatres. My 37" and surround produces so much of a better experience. :)

Have you seen the user guide?

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

Hi there,
It would appear from what you have said that you have everything connected properly. Maybe a silly question, but make sure you select the digital input on your LG to get the sound from the PS3. If there is still no joy, unplug the optical from the back of the LG unit. Look at the end of the Optical cable that should still be connected to the ps3. Is there what looks light a red light there? if so it means that the optical is getting to the LG system and the LG sytem's digital in port is Duff. If there is no "Red Light", unplug it from the PS3 and look directly at the optical out port on the ps3. Is there a Red Light there? if there is, you need a new optical cable. If there is no red light, you need to enable the digial output on the ps3. If you have and it's still not "red". the optical port is duff.

Does you Tv set have optical out? If so might I suggest running HDMI into your television set from the PS3, then run an optical audio line out from the tv into the optical line in on your HTIB

I have an almost exact set-up and you will only get sound out of your rear speakers when the TV channel is broadcasting in 5.1 Ch Stereo. Otherwise the sound is limited to your front, center, and woofer speakers.

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!

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
