Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I put a game into my PS3, it plays the game in dolby digital automatically. I put a blu ray movie in and all I'm getting is Pro Logic. I've messed around with my settings but can't figure it out. What am I missing?
In the PS3 menu, open Settings > Video Settings > BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI) or (Optical Digital) depending on which one you are using. Set the type to to Bitstream (Linear PCM does not send the DD stream through).

I am assuming that you are hooked up to an amplifier via a optical cable.
My guess for the Blu ray problem is, if you have an older amplifier that doesn't support the new digital HD sound codecs such as DOLBY DIGITAL HD and DTS HD, your amplifier will revert back to stereo or Pro Logic depending on how your amplifier is set up.
As for the Dolby Digital part, as you said, it does it automatically. Most games have Dolby Digital set up as the default audio output and the only real way to change that should be in the game itself. There are very few games that I have found that support anything other than Dolby Digital.
I hope that helps.
