Ps3 static audio

I have had my ps3 hooked up for about 2 months at first i had great audio and video through my hdmi cables. Now on certain days its hit or miss. Some days it will work and others it will just give me static. I have tried new cords and switching ports on my tv. Sometimes it fixes it and most of the time it doesn't.

I just bought my PS3 and noticed this exact problem, Go into your audiosettings click hdmi. then go to manual. Uncheck Dolby 5.1. save your settings. This fixed the static for me. Sony should fix thier 5.1 drivers

Try reseting your ps3 to do this atatch the cables that the ps3 came with ps3 off hold down the power button on the system itself see if u get good picture and audio from this cable first then if you do ur connection is ok now hook up your hdmi cable to the tv first then the ps3 then again turn off ps3 and restart it same way it should detect the cable if it dosent your hdmi port on ps3 could be faulty just try to put a game case under the cable to keep it pushed up this should work.

I'm trying to hook up my playstation 3 to my receiver and i can't get video or audio when using fibre optic and hdmi. how do i hook this up properly to get the best possible video/audio?


Having both HDMI and Fiberoptic cables causes conflicts with one another, HDMI carries both video and audio signals HDMI = Best. Hook your PS3 to your audio source with HDMI. then configure it through your PS3

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

PS3 surround sound


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.

Surround sound for ps3 with a hdmi cable..


you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV

No audio from PS3.


works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.

Audio Trouble hooking PS3 up to HD


Hi there, Have you checked that the HDMI Cable is inserted into both your PS3 and HDTV correctly ? if the cable moves about in the HDMI port that causes static sometimes ! Also check that your cable isn't damaged.

If the problem persists. i would just Use your Composite (Red,Green,Blue) connection from your TV to your PS3. you said it doesnt have static problems. and Using the composite cable you can still get the Full 1080p Resolution on your TV that the PS3 can Up-Scale to!

Hope this Helps ?!
