Since you are running the to LCD monitor instead of a LCD TV this is where you run into the issue. because the monitor is not setup to pull out the audio from the HDMI connection. So there is a few ways that you maybe able to to this.

The first one is look around at the different output cables out there the PS3. (I just got one so I do not know the accessories that are out for the PS3) This is becoming a common setup so if Sony does not have cable that will split off the audio then a 3rd party group may. I know they have one like that for the XBOX 360.

Another you can try is if your monitor will except an analog connection you may need to go that way. That is how I have my XBOX 360 that is my room connected. I have a RBG HD to VGA connect the VGA input on the monitor and the audio going to my sound card.

The reason why I suggested going analog is that right with our curent technology that if you are run with the 2 formats at the same time you will get audio/video sync issues. So you need to go all analog or all digital.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this and/or need me to clarify anything.

Got a PS3 hooked upto a Samsung 40" LCD TV via


I would suggest trying a different TV, and maybe see if you still have any Component or Standard Definition Composite cables to connect the PS3 to the TV and see if it works that way. I would assume you did this when you said you reset the resolution on your PS3, but turn it off, then hold in the power button until it beeps twice in a row. (Just in case) Make sure everything is plugged in twice and your TV is on the right input. If none of that works, there may be something wrong with the graphics adapters on your PS3 in which case you will need to contact Sony about fixing it.

All picture and no sound


Rick:
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

I cant get any picture on my sony tv when i connect my ps3 upto it, yet get a picture instantly on a cheap 26 inch hd tv. i'm using a hdmi cable on both


Silly question -- but are you sure your Sony TV is on the correct HDMI channel? My 32 inch LCD has HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3. You must make sure you plug the PS3 into the correct HDMI channel and make sure you're tuned into the same one.

I have hooked up the PS3 to my TV with the component cable. The audio is connected to a Denon digital audio device using an optical cable. I cannot get the sound to work, even though I have set up the...


I can't give you the exact steps without knowing the model of Denon receiver you are using, but usually you need to go into the setup of the AV receiver or amp and tell it to associate the digital audio input # you've plugged the PS3 into with a specific 'source'. The optical inputs will be associated by default to CD or DVD or CBL, but you usually need to go into the amps setup to specify exactly how you want it to use it.

I hope that helps.

Surround sound for ps3 with a hdmi cable..


you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV

Sound shutting off in the middle of gaming


Is the HDMI lead just just coming slightly loose? Otherwise I can't think of anything else - it's definately the lead. If it isn't because it's coming loose, I'd recommend getting a new lead.
