Good day sir may i help you, first sir lets try checking your video set up.
go settings scroll down, until you set to display settings, get video output settings its going to ask you what cable are you going to use? there should be a HDMI in there and its the best, its gonna ask automatic or custom, go to custom if your ps3 recognize your TV that it can support 480p to 1080p (try 480p just in case) you should see it if not you wont, thengo to the next window to the right to see your over all settings..

now lets go the sound settings now go back where the video set up is its only one scroll down and youll see sound settings, then youll have the optin of using the HDMI cable, use HDMI and plug your cable and you should doing fine. please gives us a feed back on how it goes,, thnk you.

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3


Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

Very low sound when playing a movie.


You have to let the PS3 automaticly check sound after setting up HDMI. Redo the Video setup and let it do everything automaticly. Might check audio settings on the tv its self.

No sound with games


go into the system settings on your ps3 and check the sound options, make sure the sound output for games is set correctly, check any of the other settings that applies to sound output. some games are encoded in surround sound, also check to make sure your ps3 has the latest updates.

I cant get my ps3 to play threw my sony surrond system period the tv is a sony too i have all the hdmi cables hooked up why wont ps3 play on the surround?


You can't get audio from HDMI cables. You have to connect the regular AV cables into your sound system first or you can use the digital output from the PS3 into your sound system if you've got the right cables. You'll also have to configure this through the audio settings. This should solve your problem. Let me know if it doesn't.

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
