Question about Sony DAV-HDX500 System
Hello you all-
The only HDMI connection on the surround sound is HDMI out for DVD only. This leaves only the Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr digital optical connection to possibly transport HD from PS3.
So far, I'm only successful in connecting straight to my Sony Bravia W3000 TV with HDMI cords to see 1080p for gaming and movies.
Connection from PS3 using AV Multi with end connections of Y, Pb/Cn, Pr/Cr and Audio L/R (Audio not used when connecting) + digital optical audio to Surround sound system doesn't produce any type of sound or video. Connection of this AV-multi straight to TV produces only 480i resolution.
I made sure to change the PS3 out to the 5-component/AV connection and changed audio to digital optical.
Any thoughts? Has anyone gotten PS3 or Xbox to connect to the surround to play blue-ray AND game?
I own a sony surround sound system, DAV-HDX465 and I have no idea on how to hook it up with my PS3......Help!
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.

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!
