Are you using the HDMI? If you are, the HDMI cable can carry both audio and video signals on it. But, you have to change the settings in your cable menu, and in your tv to detect audio from it.

Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?


It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

When I hook up my LG plasma to PS3 and Cable box, I don't get any sound or colour on the PS3. The TV /cable box works fine. Any ideas on the wiring?


What type of connections are you using? HDMI? Component? Composite? What audio? HDMI? Optical Digital? Analog audio?

Are you saying you get video from the PS3, but it is in Black&White only? Is there an NTSC/PAL selector on the PS3? If so, it may be set wrong. Set to NTSC if you're in the United States.

I have a cable box connected to reciever and was working fine for months, now i get no picture on tv only sound. I use hdmi cable out to tv that also uses my ps3 to tv which is working fine. What...


I don't know what kind of TV you have and what kind of output capabilities you have but, while your receiver will transfer your video signal, it is not the ideal way to hook it up. The port you are using may have to be reset somehow or, may have gone bad. Ideally you want to hook all video componenets directly to TV then, use, digital optical is best, audio out from TV to receiver. If you have more than 1 input in to TV, you can run your PS3 and cable box directly to TV, using the TV's menu to select which you are using, then, run your audio out to receiver.

No audio out of a/v HD reciever. HDMI cable going from PS3 to reciever. HDMI out to tv. Tv audio only. No surround


Not all recievers can sample audio from the hdmi jack, some of the earlier generation simply allowed the sound and video to pass thru,check the owners manual you still migty have to hook up an optical cable from the ps3 to the reciever.

Think about where you TV audio originates. Unless you have an antenna on your TV, everything IT hears comes from an external audio device like a cable/sat box which almost certainly has a digital audio output and/or HDMI.

I would recommend you carefully utilize your limited connections this way:

Using Page 10 as a guide.

IF your TV has 2 HDMI's or one HDMI AND one Component input:

Cable box (Component Out and Analog Stereo RCA) or HDMI Out to corresponding TV In's if available.

Cable Box coaxial audio to the HTS (3). This way the best broadcast TV multichannel audio goes to the best electronics and speakers.

HTS HDMI Out (9) to TV Component In (if available), otherwise use Component Out (7). I recommend saving the highest quality video delivery path for your native BD because broadcast Hi-Def video is always bandwidth compromised while BD is the best video available today.

Composite Video Out (6) to Composite Video In on TV for HTS management functions.

You still have both Aux In (4) pairs).

ps3 comes with an av jack set as well as hdmi. now you can use the hdmi to the TV and run audio out from the TV to the receiver and that should work but if you don't have audio out on the TV then you need to go get the av cable

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.

No Audio thru Optical input


If its a PS3 please realize that you adjust the sound options using the sound option menu on the ps3, so its possible that you have the PS3 set to RCA cable and not the HDMI therefore the optical cable isnt getting any sound from the TV
