This sounds like a protocol compatiblity problem with the medias you are using. Check the set-up for the audio in all the devices connected to the TV set. Some of the older recordings and medias must have the sound set to simple stereo or mono. If there is no digital 5.1 data on the media source there is no way you are going to hear the sound if the equipment is set to that mode.

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

No sound through tv speakers


Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

Hey,
ok so shut the system off via the back power switch then switch it back on and wait for the red light to appear.
Then push AND HOLD the power button n the front down until it beeps (dont stop pushing until it beeps at you) it will then reset itself and you will be on your way!

No Audio


YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETUP AND SPLIT THE AUDIO SIGNAL VIA OPTICAL OUTPUT. THE PS3 WILL DETECT THE CABLE AND GIVE YOU A PROMPT.

SYTEM SETTINGS ON THE STARTUP SCREEN AND BE SURE TO NOT HAVE A GAME IN THE MACHINE AT THE TIME.

Surround sound


You need a cable from your audio outlet to the home theatre receiver. Veira link is just for the picture. Only one way transmission. Optical cable or the 2 wires. Both options are available.

Audio problem when connecting to a PS3


It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.
