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!

It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.
If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.
If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.
You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.
The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.
There are generally three HDMI slots at the back panel of an HD TV. Make sure you have connected the PS3 and the Apple TV in two separate slots. Sound will work because you must have hooked it up in Audio IN at the back or if you have connected the red and white audio cables in the front panel , the audio will work only on the camera setting on your TV
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
If its a PS3 please realize that you adjust the sound options using the sound option menu on the ps3, so its possible that you have the PS3 set to RCA cable and not the HDMI therefore the optical cable isnt getting any sound from the TV
Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
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.
