After I hooked up my PS3 to HD, I soon realized that there was a problem with the audio. The sound at times is very staticy sounding. This problem does not occur while I am watching a movie or listening to music on the hard drive. The problem usually occurs when music is played on a game such as MotorStorm or Madden '09. My ps3 is a fairly new 40gb model, and this problem does not occur when it is hooked up using the tri-colored cord.

Re: Audio Trouble hooking PS3 up to HD
Hi there, Have you checked that the HDMI Cable is inserted into both your PS3 and HDTV correctly ? if the cable moves about in the HDMI port that causes static sometimes ! Also check that your cable isn't damaged.
If the problem persists. i would just Use your Composite (Red,Green,Blue) connection from your TV to your PS3. you said it doesnt have static problems. and Using the composite cable you can still get the Full 1080p Resolution on your TV that the PS3 can Up-Scale to!

If it works with your Wii and not with you PS3, chances are your audio / video cables were damaged in the move. Try hooking up your PS3 to another TV with the same cables. If you have audio and video on a different TV with the same cables, it may be a problem with your HD settings. If the cables for the Wii aren't HD component cables and the PS3 cables are (or vice versa) this could be causing the problem, as the HD component cables have a different plug in than the normal video / audio settings. If this is the case, search around your TV to find the alternate connections and try those (these will probably require a different channel). If none of this works, I suggest you contact Sony about the problem and perhaps even send in your Playstation for repair. If you need anything else, let me know!
Not all recievers can sample audio from the hdmi jack, some of the earlier generation simply allowed the sound and video to pass thru,check the owners manual you still migty have to hook up an optical cable from the ps3 to the reciever.
Hello... This is most problem due to the cables or your audio output settings.
Ok, firstly try checking the cable's are in properly and no dust has built up. Then at the main menu, go to settings. Scroll down until you get to sound settings, choose audio output settings then HD-MI then auto. If that doesn't fix the problem, choose manual and select the most basic output.
Any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Thanks for using fix ya.
In regards to you no sound problem most likely you have a device that does not support sound thought the HDMI port like an computer monitor. If this is the case you will have to configure the audio through the analog cable, you can do this in the PS3's audio settings. Also note if you ever had the analog cable hooked up you may need to tell the audio to go through the HDMI cable if you do have a video display that does support audio going through the HDMI cable.
If you still have trouble let me know. I am not near my PS3 but if you have trouble I can reply with the walk through steps for you.
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.
Make sure the Coaxial cables are hooked up properly. I don't know the HD colors right off hand but the normal colors are [RED Audio][WHITE Audio] and [Yellow Video]. Hope you get it hooked up with videos and sounds soon. Make sure that if your useing regular coaxial cables, your not hooking them into HD slots and Vice Versa
There is possibly an easier way!! If your receiver has RCA audio out ports you can hook that up to your TV. It will not be Dolby Digital surround sound, but it will still be stereo sound!! There should be ports on the back of your TV that say audio in that will support these cables also. I had the same problem when I hooked up my PS3 to my HDTV. I wanted to hear my gameplay in stereo!! I hope this helps you out!!!
Just double check the leads, you should only plug in 5 component leads and leave out the yellow and the other plug thats left over, you dont have to use the left and right audio if you have those as component does the audio.
