Connecting a ps3 to a Panasonic SC-RT70


Just use the provided A/V connector and connect it to an unused A/V input. You will only get Pro Logic surround with this connection method but since your receiver has no digital or HDMI inputs that's all you can do.

Good Luck,

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


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.

Cheers

Sound Quality


Preferential Quality Connections in order of higher quality are: 1st>HDMI, 2nd>DVI, 3rd>Component/S-Video, 4th>Composite Video. Make sure you only use the surround setting on 1 of the 2 components, which ever is of better quality. If you use them both it WILL sound like mud. (older receiver-newer tv>probably tv) but you must connect all tv audio channel outputs to receiver. (newer receiver-older tv>receiver would be better)
Receivers also tend to have more wattage to drive larger speaker loads than most TVs. The key is to turn off the surround and SRS functions on the TV if you use the surround decoders on the receiver. Either way you use it, make sure you use the set-up feature to balance the outputs of the various channels for either source (the levels of the two will probably be very different).

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


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!

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
