Hi bazza1945,

The answer would be a yes, as long as the model of your playstation 3 has what's called a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. As far as I know all of the PS3 has this type of connector at the back of the unit near the LAN port and AV port.

The next thing you need to check though is if you surround sound system has a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. If it does, then you're all set. All you need to do is buy the necessary cable to connect the PS3 to your home theater/surround sound system.

For more information you can check your PS3 user manual or view it online at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Manuals/PS3

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

How can i directly connect a LG H30 TV, or a PS3 or a Wii to a Regent HT391 sound system? Is it possible to? So far the only 'surround sound' I can achieve is by connecting my tv thru the cable box...


According to the various vendors that carry this model, the unit has multiple inputs to accommodate gaming systems, dvd, tv, etc.

Look on the back of your system and see if there are inputs labeled as Game, DVD, TV, etc. You should be able to connect each component, and use the remote to switch between the multiple sources.

Good luck.

How do i get my ps3 to run through my lg surround sound


Connect your yellow and red lead from the PS3 to the surround system, connect them to aux input. (the white lead is not needed). Then in the sound settings on the PS3, go to audio multi-output and change it to on. On your remote for the sound system press the input button until aux appears on the front of your LG HT303SU, and thats it, happy gaming.

Separate video and sound on hdmi


yes it would be possible to separate audio and video from your PS3. You would need to go to the PS3 setting for audio and choose Optical instead of HDMI. You would need to connect and Optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. Then on the receiver you would need to set the digital inut for your source(PS3) to optical.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


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.

Cheers

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


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!
