The only optical option is through the satalite function. After I hooked up my xbox 360 with optical audio, I pushed the SAT button on the front of the RCA receiver then turned the multi jog wheel until it read "optical" out came surround sound. I hope this helps you.

I have an RCA home theatre...model rt2910. I have hooked my PS3 via HDMI to the TV for the video and used an optical cable for the audio. I set the PS3 to send video via HDMI and audio via optical cable....


You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

NO OPTICAL SOUND I connected HDMI from reciever to TV, HDMI from PS3 to TV, Optical from PS3 to Receiver (PS3 Sound settings switched to Optical, with Dolby Digital 5.1CH, and Dolby DTS 5.1 selected) ...


Hello,
I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

Hello,
It sounds like you probably have a broken optical cable. Optical cables are made of glass and are quite fragile. You have to be very carefull to not bend it or smash it. Try connecting another optical cable, or you can also revert back to the stereo analog plugs to eleminate the possibilty of having a bad receiver.
Good Luck

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1


if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


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.
