I have a high def motorolla cable box, play station 3, samsung LN52A650, and an older receiver ONKYO Integra DTR-5.1. I have the playstation and tv on the way and want to make sure that I have the proper cables and configeration lined up for when they arrive. The receiver isnt HDMI so this is creating my confusion. I am thinking that this is how I will hook it up, is it correct?
HDMI from cable box to TV, HDMI from playstation to TV, optical from cable to receiver, and optical from playstation to receiver.
I want to use the surround sound for everything and the main use for the playstation will be blue ray... Thank you!

Does the vu meter show anything(bars moving up and down when audio is present?If so you may have a blown fuse or bad IC in the amplifier section causing the problem. If there is no indication of audio on the front panel it would be a Microprocessor problem
most higher end integra's have a input level adjusment or input selection for each and every input. Perhaps you are not on the correct input, go to onscreen programming and check out the input level and input select - also try the tape in another input like tape 2 or cd. It will not hurt the receiver for a test. Also, if you are using the cheap cables from the manufacturer - try a pair of cables that you know work or go by some. BTW, you don't need to spend $40 for cables order them online through amazon or other store. Gold / sliver plated oxygen free are best.
I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1.
According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected.
Hope this helps.
