Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
How do I connect my new PS3 to hook upto my Samsung LCD which has 3 HDMI sockets and get the sound to come from my Denon 2807 AVR.
My current TV is superbly setup. Ive just bought bough another HDMI cable which I will use to connect my PS3 but should I connect the HDMI directly to the LCD TV or via the AVR?
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.
