Re: sound issues

If you hold the power button when turing the PS3 on for i think 5 seconds and it will default the PS3 in to the outputs you have plugged in.

Hello, I recently hooked my Xbox 360 up to my surround sound system using a digital optical cable ran from the xbox to the TV (optical cable from 360 to sound system) Sound and video works great for...

HDCP is the "handshake" protocol used by the Xbox to communicate via HDMI to your TV. The optical cable wouldn't have anything to do with this error. So far the only solution that's been found to this issue is to ensure that the HDMI cable is properly plugged in and power off/on both devices and see if the handshake is restored. If this doesn't work you may need a new HDMI cable.

Literally, I woke up this morning and my 360 won't produce HD video. It was fine when I used it yesterday. I tried a new HDMI cable but nothing, though the standard Red/White/Yellow cables work fine....

ye what it is is you either have a bad solder point on your board or the board is defective there can be no other reason i can solder your board for a fee but there is no point mate when you can use the switchable lead and use the blue and green hd bits that are the same as the yellow and red and white ones and just put the switch to hd then you will have just the same quallity let me know how you got on m8

Is my tv or hd cables for my xbox360 broken

it sounds like you need to go to "display settings" when you have the HD cables in and turn it down to 420p or 720p, it sounds to me like your resolution is too high.

No picture or sound on the tv

where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable

Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.

Surround sound not working properly

this isnt a solution to your problem but i have a suggestion. I see this problem has been posted a couple days now and i think that because your problem looks like it involves more stereo equipment rather than the xbox 360 console. i think you would get a better answer actually a soltuion if you posted this in the stereo section.
