Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 audio problem

I just purchased a PS3 mainly for the Blu-ray player. I hooked up my PS3 to my Sony Receiver using the optical out on the blu-ray. When I watch a movie in surround sound the audio drops out for a few seconds and then come back on only to repeat this so that it is impossible to watch the movie. Seems that the signal gets interrupted and then regained. I set the Blu-ray up to output bitstream as when i set it to PCM I only get stereo single to the receiver. The PS3 only has one choice for my receiver because my receiver does not have a HDMI input. BTW the sound only seems to go out when there is load action type sounds. Need some help making sure I have the right setting.

    Firmware on PS3 has been updated with no change and I have replaced the optical cable to make sure it's not the cable.

  • Corey Jones Oct 06, 2008

    My receiver works fine with all other DVD players just when I use the PS3 blu-ray disc. there are about five options to select from when I choose the settings in the PS3. They include dolby digital 5.1, Dolby Digital DTS, Linear PCM 48, and other Linear PCM options that are higher speed rates which i do not select. It appears that the Blu-ray can send signal a higher rates if selected. when I select the DD 5.1 and the DD DTS and enter I gat a message similar to " all signals may not be recieved properly" which I do not understand but select OK and then get the poor results.

    I had no intensions to buy a new receiver when I purchased the Blu-ray. How can I get it to work and get the standard DD5.1?

Yes, you can connect the HDMI Cable from the Blu-ray Player to the TV directly and then, connect the Digital Optical cable from the Blu-ray Player to the Receiver.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.

Hooking up a PS3 to my surround sound


you have to go to the set up menu and let the receiver know that you are inputting dvd audio to the digital in. (assigning). that way, when you switch the receiver to dvd, it will look for audio from the digital input. your receiver manual will guide you through that set-up.
if that does not work, the fiber optic cable could be bad. this is more common than people would expect.
another option is to just rca cables to the receiver from the ps3. there is an adapter that lets you do that.
good luck

What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
