Question about Denon AVR-2800 Receiver
I have an new ps3 and a denon 2800 avr, 5.1 reciever. I have hdmi from ps3 to tv and optical from ps3 to receiver. receiver recognizes the optical connection (thru front display) but I get no sound. Also, since optical ports aren't labeled for device, how do I know the correct device to set to dvd, vdp etc?
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).
