    I'm having the same issue. I have both Video and Audio coming out of the PS3 through the HDMI. Then I have optical output coming out of the TV into the receiver. So far I only get 2ch audio. I've only tried watching movies did not have a chance to test out a game yet.

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

NO SURROUND SOUND WHEN PLAYING BLU-RAY


Your amplifier should "downgrade" the signal to 5.1, even if the disc isn't using it. It is most likely a setting on your amp that may need adjusting for "types" of digital to accept on its input. If you can, set your optical input on your amp to "auto". This way it will automatically detect and switch for the proper incoming audio feed

PS3 HDMI PROBLEM WITH SOUND


Hi,

I am pretty sure you need to have an Optical cable running from Your PS3 to your sound system...if you have one...

So basically you will have a HDMI cable running from your PS3 into your TV, another HDMI cable running from your TV into your sound system, then an optical cable running from the PS3 to the Sound system. I sadly own a HDDVD sound system but the optical cable tells it to accept the Blu Ray content.....

Ps3 using digital optical and hdmi cables together


There is a conflict in the fact that HDMI gives you the digital surround sound without the need for the optical lead and when you allocate the optical for the sound thats when the conflict starts, you can only use one or the other.
