Hi to connect your ps3 to your tv all you would need is a hdmi to hdmi connector which would mean the sound would come straight out of your tv. The sound comes directly out of the hdmi cable. If you want to connect the ps3 to an external reciver you might want to get an AV reciver with HDMI inputs. This would connect to your tv and you can switch channels to different sources connected into the receiver, also they come with very good seperate speakers so you wouldnt have to use you telly speakers and you can connect your directv box into it aswell.
Alternatively you can connect the audio phono outputs from your AV multiout connector on your ps3 (the cable should be provided) to a seperate sound system with phono AUX inputs, these are found on most soundsystems but check with whoever your buying it from. But this means that you cant use the HDMI output of your PS3 for video just the AV multiout video signal (which is a bit rubbish, so I suggest the latter solution.

No no no! # 1. You need to connect all your components to your TV via an HDMI cable. For true HD and digital sound this is needed. Your TV (if its an HD TV) should have 3 or 4 HDMI inputs. So your Xbox/PS3 should be connected via HDMI cable. Your HD sat or cable box should also be connected with an HDMI cable. Same for your Blu Ray player.
#2. Now that your components are connect in a way which will enable you to see their media in either 720p, 1080i or 1080p your ready to get the Digital sound to your speakers. On the back of your TV you should (again on most all HD tv's) have a digital audio (optical) out. You need to purchase a digital (optical) audio cable and plug one end into your tv's digital audio out jack. Then plug the other end into your audio receivers digital audio in jack. You may have to go into your receivers menu to select or enable the digital/optical input. Then you should be rocking and rolling with true digital DTS, Pro Logic, Pro Logic 2 in either 5.1 or 7.1...
Think of your TV as the hub. Connect all the components with HDMI cables. And then your TV to your receiver with a digital/optical cable. It's that simple.
Never never use the red and white cables for audio. They were designed for 2 channel stereo sound. They won't deliver 5.1 or 7.1 digital sound.
Also... Don't ever hook up any component using the old "yellow" video cable if you want picture quality better than 480i resolution. They won't do HD period.
Here is a list of the popular video cables and they highest resolution.
Yellow video cables - 480i resolution
S video (super video) cable - 480p
Component video cables (red/blue/green) - up to 720p
HIgh definition multimedia interface HDMI - up to 1080p (full HD) and digital sound.
you need to have 3 pair of audio-in ports for that.
i think your sound system has 3 input ports.
1.tv in ->u can connect this to audio out of your tv
2: vcr in ->u can connect this to audio out port of vcr
3: aux in -> this can be connected to your TV Receiver
then you can use the soundsystem remote to switch between the source to listen one at a time.
pls come back if u have any thing more
The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.
Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.
You will need 2 hdmi cables the ps3 a tv with an hdmi port and a audio receiver with hdmi in and out. 1:>First connect the ps3 to the tv with the A/V cables. 2:>Turn the system on and the tv on, get to the ps3 dashboard. 3:>Under the settings tab select (display settings) 4:>Select (video output settings) 5:>Do not disconnect the A/V. 6:>Connect the hdmi cable to the ps3 and tv. 7:>Then select hdmi and select change, this gives you 30 seconds to switch the tv over to the hdmi channel. Once done and you get a signal select (yes). 8:>Disconnect the A/V cable. 9:>Select what inut your tv will support 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. You can select more than one and even all if it is supported by your tv. 10:>Then select hdmi for your audio output, but since your ps3 is connected to the tv only select linear PCM 2channel. Check for sound on the tv's speakers. If check is good then proceed. 11:>Power down the tv and ps3, disconnect the hdmi cable. 12:>Connect the hdmi cable from the ps3 to the input of the audio receiver and the hdmi from the tv to the output on the receiver. 13:>Turn the ps3 on, the receiver on and the tv on. Make sure the receiver is on the right channel. If it is you will see the ps3 come on the tv, and have sound on the main speakers of the receiver and tv. 14:>At this step you should be able to see and here the ps3's dashboard. Now to setup surround. 15:>Scroll to the settings tab and select (sound settings). 16:>Select (audio output settings) 17:>Select (hdmi) 18:>Select (automatic) this will select the basic surround settings that all receivers have. 19:>Hit enter and exit. 20:>From here test the surround with a game or movie. If for any reason you should need to restart the process, simply plug the A/V cable back in and do a video reset.

the system to off/standby, where only the red light is on. 2:>Then
hold your finger on the front power button, it will turn on beep twice then
shut back off, release finger. 3:>Then

Unless you still tune programs off the air from the TV tuner and an antenna - what possible TV program would come into the TV that the DirectTV box wouldn't already provide high quality sound and video for? You should run the audio from the DirectTV box to the receiver.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.
I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.
Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
