    Hi dscrog

    Thanks for the reply. I still do not have any sound though.

    In
    the setup I have option 18 COAX option 19 opt 1and option 20 opt 2. The
    inputs for opt1 and opt 2 are OFF/VCR/CDR/CD/AUX/DVD/TV

    I have plugged the optical cable from the PS3 into opt 2 at the back of the AVR1905. And in set up made opt2 input as CDR/TAPE.

    The input on the front is set to AUTO

    When i scroll to IN CDR/TAPE it does say IN = OPTICAL 2 but no sound is coming through.

    Sorry if this is a winded but im trying to give as much info as possible. Thanks Martin

    DOH!! it was me I'm and idiot.

    OK you need to adjust the settings in the PS3 to recognize digital optical............however when you do it overrides the HDMI sound and so you do not get any sound coming through the TV. So if u dont have your amp switched on you dont get any sound for the games / dvd.

    So if you switch back to HDMI you dont get any sound coming through the amp!!

    Im going to try and run a feed from the TV to the amp but I think Im going to get some lagg doing it this way

ONCE YOU CONNECT THE OPTICAL CABLE AT THE DENON, YOU ALSO NEED TO CHECK THE AUDIO SETTING FOR THE INPUT USED AND MAKE SURE OPTICAL IS SELECTED AND LAST ONCE YOU SELECT THE SOURCE INPUT USED TO CONNECT THE PS3 TO THE DENON PRESS THE INPUT MODE BUTTON ON THE FRONT LEFT OF THE DENON UNTIL YOU SEE DISPLAYED THE WORD AUTO, THIS SHOULD GET YOU SOUND AS LOND AS THE PS3 IS OUTPUTING AUDIO OVER THE OPTICAL

I can't give you the exact steps without knowing the model of Denon receiver you are using, but usually you need to go into the setup of the AV receiver or amp and tell it to associate the digital audio input # you've plugged the PS3 into with a specific 'source'. The optical inputs will be associated by default to CD or DVD or CBL, but you usually need to go into the amps setup to specify exactly how you want it to use it.

I hope that helps.

Best way to hook up all my componets


The best way to use the Denon and get your money's worth is to connect all devices to the Denon using HDMI connects if possible, if you use HDMI make sure you assign the audio if needed.
HDMI from Denon to TV. the Denon will upconvert all signals to HDMI to the TV

No sound when ps3 is hooked up to a denon avr 1609


The 1609 only has video on the HDMI. No audio comes through the HDMI cables. Hook up an optical cable between your ps3 and the receiver and you should be good to go.

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.

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

The Denon 688 does not process sound via HDMI, you have to run a seperate cable to get sound. Choices are analog audio jacks (red and white) or either a toslink (optical) cable or an rca digital audio cable.

Optical inputs


In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck

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.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


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.
