Audio problems using a Playstation 3

Hello -

I ran an HDMI cable from my PS3 into my Harmon Kardon AVR 146 and the video is fine. I ran an optical cable from the PS3 into the HK AVR 146 and I get audio out of the Television but nothing out of the speakers.

The speakers are connected because they work when I select the tuner. How do I get PS3 Audio out of my speakers?

    We have a ps3 that we recently set to high def. We went to a friends house that did not have a hd tv so we used their ps2 cables and had no problems until we came home and reconnected the ps3 back to high def. We can get into system but cannot play games. It will only play ps2 games????

First try ensuring that "OPT 1, 2, or 3" function is selected depending which one you are using on the H/K 146 (see manual for selection instructions). Next please ensure that the PS3 audio out set to "optical" (Settings/sound settings/audio output settings/digital out+DD 5.1). That should help.

Does the Harmon kardan avr25 have an hdmi output


Nope. You get one component OUTPUT (monitor) and two component INPUTS (Vid 2/DVD) but no HDMI video output.

If you can input and switch HDMI video directly at your display from your cable/SAT etc. you should be fine, just run all the audio through the AVR-25 through the coaxial/optical digital inputs, L/R analog RCA or the 5.1 direct inputs.

Hi, You might want to run your ps3's hdmi into your hk, as I'm sure it has hdmi inputs. Using your hk as the audio /visual switcher may resolve this issue-and by the way the hdmi cable has audio built in. I hope this was of some help and thanks for choosing FixYa, good luck Prodzilla.

Hi if there is an optical out on the television i would use that direct to your Harmon Kardon AVR 125, the sound would be in sync with picture, as the source is the same.

Harmon kardon 745 displays "unlock" no sound for tv or movies


I also had this UNLOCK message on my Harman Cardon AVR 130.
The reason for this error was - in a hurry I've plugged the optical input into optical OUT! Double check that your connections in the back are correct and hopefully it fixes your problem.

Cheers,
Sergey

Cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray


I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...
