Hello.

I have a similar setup and am having problems of my own, but i've got it somewhat working at the moment.

I have the TV connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI output port.

I have the PS3 connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI input port 1.

I went on the receiver and followed the instructions in the manual to setup the DVD function on the receiver (i chose to call my ps3 a dvd) to use HDMI-1. I can't remember the button combination as i'm not at my hosue right now, but it was in the HDMI section of the manual (page 44 on my manual). Essentially I had to tell the receiver to enable HDMI for the DVD function rather than being defaulted to "No". At that point, with the default ps3 setup, I was able to get video to pass through.

Next, i went into the video options on the ps3 and changed it to 1080p (since my tv supports that).

Where I"m having my problem is that the sound from the ps3 outputs directly to the TV and doesn't output on my receiver for some reason.

How I've rigged that to work is to take the HDMI to RCA cable that came with my PS3 and i plugged in the Red and White wires on the back of the receiver in the DVD section of inputs. At that point the sound comes through the receiver.

What I don't know how to do and would really like to know is how to get the sound to output on my receiver via HDMI only and not with the extra cable.

Anyway, if i'm making sense above and you follow that, you should be up and running (but maybe not in an optimal configuration).

Let me know if you ahve any questions.

Also, if anyone knows the solution to my issue, i'm all ears.


Thanks.

Hi i can't get any sound thru my speakers. I have hdmi from ps3 to tv optical from ps3 to receiver. i have tried dvd video 1 video 2 what setting am i missing? thanks


first: make sure you have the audio output setting on the ps3 set to digital optical output

second: make sure you select whatever the optical input is assigned as, probably dvd. i think there is a button on the front of the receiver that says digital input, make sure you hit that. A little light on the front screen of the receiver will say digital.

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.

No sound is coming through my Onkyo receiver from the cable box


The Playstation 3 automatically broadcasts video and audio through HDMI even when an optical audio cable is ran to the receiver. If your TV has an optical audio out, it's just best to run everything into the TV including audio, and then run the optical cable from the TV to the reciever. It's less confusing and less buttons/remotes you have to use when you want to change devices, i.e. Cable/PS3/DVD

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

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.

Connecting a Dish 622 Receiver to the HTR500 and a Sony HDTV TV


I haven't researched to actual manuals for your equipment, but I'm guessing that the optical may be disabled when the HDMI is used. You could try using the component video outputs to the TV and then the optical to the Onkyo.

You have probably done this, but have you changed the video settings in the setup menu to have the tv using HDMI out? I believe it is under the first option when the menu comes up.

Source always PCM, can't get Dolby-D


PCM is standard when using HDMI cables, you are passing an already decoded audio signal to the receiver and it outputs the sound and does nothing more. The reciever calls this PCM, your PS3, when pressing select should show that it is decoding the dolby digital HD. There is no quality difference in the two. PCM is the same because it is un compressed audio. So when using HDMI, no matter the signal that the movie or music is playing, wether it be dolby or DTS, you will see PCM when using HDMI.
