Question about Sony DAV-HDX500 System
Hello you all-
The only HDMI connection on the surround sound is HDMI out for DVD only. This leaves only the Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr digital optical connection to possibly transport HD from PS3.
So far, I'm only successful in connecting straight to my Sony Bravia W3000 TV with HDMI cords to see 1080p for gaming and movies.
Connection from PS3 using AV Multi with end connections of Y, Pb/Cn, Pr/Cr and Audio L/R (Audio not used when connecting) + digital optical audio to Surround sound system doesn't produce any type of sound or video. Connection of this AV-multi straight to TV produces only 480i resolution.
I made sure to change the PS3 out to the 5-component/AV connection and changed audio to digital optical.
Any thoughts? Has anyone gotten PS3 or Xbox to connect to the surround to play blue-ray AND game?
Okay well i have a ps3 connect via HDMI to my surround sound reciever, the reciever is then conncected to my tv via HDMI as well, i can get sound but not video, any help?

If you are trying to hool up a system just go to Input and go to the Game setting on the blue menu and then you are set.

I get HD picture from PS3 by HDM1 cable to tv and sound by optical cable from tv to my home theater surround system.

Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!

I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.
I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to
connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.
Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.
If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.
My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)
