Question about Sony DAV-HDX500 System

1 Answer

I can only get 2.1 sound from my Playstation3

I have a Sony Playstation 3 and Sony DAV-HDX500 Home theater system. I have tried two methods of connection
1) HDMI cable from PS3 to TV (An LG 32" LCD) for video, then digital optical cable from PS3 to home theater unit (I've adjusted the PS3 settings accordingly)
-AND-
2) HDMI cable from PS3 to TV (PS3 set to use it for both audio and video) and digital optical cable from TV to home theater unit.

I have determined all speakers function, as other modes on the home theater system will give sounds (tuner, cds, etc) to all speakers. The Playstation will only give sound to 2.1 channels. Rock Band 2 continues to playing only in 2.1 and no sound comes from center or rear speakers.

Any help with this problem is greatly appreciated.

    I have the exact same issue. However I'm using a HTPC & an old xbox as my testing platform. Both units work fine on another receiver, however on the DAV-HDX500 I can only ouput to stereo...even though all speakers pass the tone test in the setup menu.

SOURCE: Is Sony DAV-S500 optical input compatible with optical output from Pioneer DVD player DV-566K?

I don't think this has an Optical but a Coaxial connection. You might try a coaxial audio cable not optical.
