Ive recently bought a 60gig ps3 and am having a problem setting up the surround sound. Ive connected the hdmi cable from the ps3 to my toshiba 37WLT66 lcd tv and have connected the optical cable on the ps3 to the back of my sony av receiver but I can only set it up where I either get sound through my tv or sound through the speakers on my surround sound, how do i get sound coming out both? Any advice would be good!
It is with the setting of the PS3. HDMI is set to carry both the video and audio signals. Set the audio output of the ps3 to optical and video output to HDMI. you cannot output sound both on tv and surround speakers on the rx

You will need 2 hdmi cables the ps3 a tv with an hdmi port and a audio receiver with hdmi in and out. 1:>First connect the ps3 to the tv with the A/V cables. 2:>Turn the system on and the tv on, get to the ps3 dashboard. 3:>Under the settings tab select (display settings) 4:>Select (video output settings) 5:>Do not disconnect the A/V. 6:>Connect the hdmi cable to the ps3 and tv. 7:>Then select hdmi and select change, this gives you 30 seconds to switch the tv over to the hdmi channel. Once done and you get a signal select (yes). 8:>Disconnect the A/V cable. 9:>Select what inut your tv will support 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. You can select more than one and even all if it is supported by your tv. 10:>Then select hdmi for your audio output, but since your ps3 is connected to the tv only select linear PCM 2channel. Check for sound on the tv's speakers. If check is good then proceed. 11:>Power down the tv and ps3, disconnect the hdmi cable. 12:>Connect the hdmi cable from the ps3 to the input of the audio receiver and the hdmi from the tv to the output on the receiver. 13:>Turn the ps3 on, the receiver on and the tv on. Make sure the receiver is on the right channel. If it is you will see the ps3 come on the tv, and have sound on the main speakers of the receiver and tv. 14:>At this step you should be able to see and here the ps3's dashboard. Now to setup surround. 15:>Scroll to the settings tab and select (sound settings). 16:>Select (audio output settings) 17:>Select (hdmi) 18:>Select (automatic) this will select the basic surround settings that all receivers have. 19:>Hit enter and exit. 20:>From here test the surround with a game or movie. If for any reason you should need to restart the process, simply plug the A/V cable back in and do a video reset.

the system to off/standby, where only the red light is on. 2:>Then
hold your finger on the front power button, it will turn on beep twice then
shut back off, release finger. 3:>Then
turn back on normally. Good luck.
You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.
The HTDDWG700 does not transfer the audio through the HDMI cable that the vision goes through. To solve the problem i got an optical cable and connected the PS3 to the receiver with the optical and put the HDMI cable from the PS3 to the tv.
sounds like you are going to have to get the component cables for the PS3, you can get them on amazon, the only thing about the component cables is that the quality cant go as high as the HDMI cable but its close. but thats the only way i can tell you to have surround sound with your PS3
what other connectors your surround system has for audio in you mention no optical what about digital in? is a black connector like rca your tv may have one and all you need is one single rca cable from tv to surround system
you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV
Check your pioneer unit settings, the ps3 settings are correct, and make sure you unplugged the audio cables. It sounds like a bad signal somewhere, which would cause the speakers to clip and distort. Make sure all of your surround sound speakers have a good connection if they have single wire runs to them and not a audio plug in them and there are not broken wires, or wires touching.
what you can do is use the av cables plug in the white and red into the back of your surround sound system remember you have to adjust your settings on your ps3 so it uses the av cables for sound ps u don't have to disconnect your hdmi
