Question about Onkyo TX-SR804 7.1 Channels Receiver

Separate video and sound on hdmi

I have a question, and was wondering if this will work.
I recently bought a lcd tv, and a ps3. I also have a receiver which only has an hdmi out, not an in. I was wondering if it is possible to connect the ps3 to the receiver for sound, and to the tv through hdmi for video.
I guess the other question is if I'm just stuck either with no surround, or buying a new surround system? Thanks

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.

You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

Lcd montior with tv box but no hdmi sound


in some cases certain manufacturers say in the instructions that when using s video with seperate audio, you cannot use the HDMI for the sound and sometimes visa versa, it's just the way the output is set up. Remove the other sound cable you are using for pc or tv and just use HDMI to confirm that the sound is re-enabled on the HDMI
