You will need to tell the PS3 to use the optical cable for digital output in its setup, as well as tell your amp to use the optical cable as the input for whichever 'source' you wish to have associated with the PS3.

Different Audio output between DVD and Blu-Ray DVD


m4wolf

The issue is that not all videos use DTS. Look at the videos that you are trying to play do they support DTS if so make sure that you are selecting the DTS track in the audio setup.

In regards to your receiver if it does not support Dolby Digital then you might want to look at upgrading to a receiver that supports Dolby Digital and DTS if you want true surround on all your videos.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].

Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.

Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)

Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.

Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

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).

Choppy and distorted sound during gameplay with an optical cable


Check your pioneer unit settings, the ps3 settings are correct, and make sure you unplugged the audio cables. It sounds like a bad signal somewhere, which would cause the speakers to clip and distort. Make sure all of your surround sound speakers have a good connection if they have single wire runs to them and not a audio plug in them and there are not broken wires, or wires touching.

First of all, Linear PCM is the best option to choose. PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is a format for uncompressed raw audio data.

Some 5.1 sets have Dolby ProLogic II for example. The raw PCM output gets spread at your speakers dynamically. Meaning the decoder of your set interprets it the way it thinks is best. For example, if it gets a high frequency tone, it sends it to the center speakers as for human voice has a very high frequency. The center speaker is meant for dialogs.

But when you choose a compressed, encoded format such as Dolby or DTS the channel devidance is already mixed for you for optimal theatre experience.

When you choose DTS or Dolby in the menu of your Blu-ray Disc it will originally output a raw PCM audio stream. The decoder knows how to decode the DTS data out of it when you use the DTS audio track from the movie. The same goes for Dolby. Some movies can output pure PCM, but then most sets use ProLogic II to devide it over the speakers.
It's kinda hard to explain how it works, bottom line is.. there's nothing wrong.

I hope it makes sense to you and your question is answered.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

NO SURROUND SOUND WHEN PLAYING BLU-RAY


Your amplifier should "downgrade" the signal to 5.1, even if the disc isn't using it. It is most likely a setting on your amp that may need adjusting for "types" of digital to accept on its input. If you can, set your optical input on your amp to "auto". This way it will automatically detect and switch for the proper incoming audio feed
