Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have the 60 gig ps3 and use the HDMI output to a projector for video, this works great. However, being a projector, it has no sound capability, so I use the ps3 optical sound port to my pioneer digital processor and let it make the surround sound work. I use this setup now for my home theater and it all works great. I am very familiar with the menu on the ps3 and I know how to tell the ps3 to use the HDMI for video and the optical port for audio, usually this works with no problems. If I turn the ps3 off after using it I have to go through the whole process again before it will work. O.K. then if thats what it takes, then so be it. But from time to time nothing works because the sound will work then cut out then work and cut out. This happens for both games and Blu-ray movies. I am certain that I am doing this right, it's a pain to do it each time though. I am considering getting a new digital processor with HDMI capability and hopefully resolve the problem like that, but not sure if that is the answer. I am open for any advice you may have. Thank you.
It SHOULD remember your preferences and you shouldn't have to select optical audio output every time you turn on your PS3; something is definitely wrong there to start with... As for a solution? I can only suggest checking that all your other equipment is functioning correctly before having to conclude that your PS3 is having some problems.
