Our TV is hooked up to an a/v surround receiver that has no optical ports. We get pic but no sound when ps3 hooked to tv. How can I get surround sound if a/v receiver has no optical ports? The only available ports on back of receiver are a blue port (Pb/Cb) and a red port (Pr/Cr).

You should have your signal in to your Comcast, then HDMI out to Sat in on your receiver. I haven't looked but I'm guessing you have multiple HDMI in on your receiver, but remember, you only have one HDMI out from receiver which would go to tv. What happens if you hook HDMI directly friom Comcast out to HDTV in.If you still have a delay there must be some sort of adjustment on your tv. When you plug into tv, Is it a default screen you can't change or, can you check say video 1, etc.? How many HDMI inputs do you have on your tv? Let me know through "add a comment"
If you have a home theatre system, most receivers have a digital audio input that you can use and hook that up to the digital audtio output on your TV. I have the same TV, and this is how I am doing it.
The other option is to get a new receiver that supports HDMI, and feed you HDMI into the receiver and then use the HDMI out from the receiver to the TV.
You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.
yes it would be possible to separate audio and video from your PS3. You would need to go to the PS3 setting for audio and choose Optical instead of HDMI. You would need to connect and Optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. Then on the receiver you would need to set the digital inut for your source(PS3) to optical.
I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.
I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.
Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
you have to go to the set up menu and let the receiver know that you are inputting dvd audio to the digital in. (assigning). that way, when you switch the receiver to dvd, it will look for audio from the digital input. your receiver manual will guide you through that set-up. if that does not work, the fiber optic cable could be bad. this is more common than people would expect. another option is to just rca cables to the receiver from the ps3. there is an adapter that lets you do that. good luck mark
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.
Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
