Question about Onkyo HT-S990THX System
I'm having issues with my optical audio inputs. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't work at all. Sometimes they cut in and out. I have tried different cables, and all three optical inputs. I have also tried using 2 different devices (PC and PS3). Everything was fine until one day the sound kept cutting in and out for no reason. Analog inputs work just fine. Do you have any suggestions?
First put the orginal ps3 cable onto ps3 then to tv.set tv to see ps3 and go to ps3 setup,now down to display settings,set to hdmi,picture will go off so now switch tv to hdmi input .Next go to sound settings for ps3 and set to hdmi if your amp can work this way ,if not set sound out to optical.
hope this helps.

U need to reset your parameters.....Goto the System button and then press F5. This will lead you to where you need to press initialize to reset the parameters. Don't worry it wont delete any of your sounds etc. I had the same problems.....u will probably have to do it every-time you turn it back on and off. I think the cause of this is due to it having a previous expansion on it......

Cat, Splitting an optical output is not recommended. In fact it would require an optical patch bay, which would be overkill. You could use the headphone output on the front of the Denon AVR3805. Because this output is behind a door it might be a cleaner looking set up to use the optical output on the top left looking at the back of the unit. Because those two optical outputs are labeled "optical 3 and 4" they are zone outputs, they should work without having to "map" or patch them internally. The outputs here will be controlled independently as zones from the receiver's remote. The easiest option looks to be the analog "pre output" located in the middle of the back of the receiver. The left-most two rca jacks you want to use are labeled "front" and are white over red. This output will work fine. Control of the volume will be from the headphone unit and not the receiver.

Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

On the remote try scrolling through the settings from the DTS button and also make sure you have the correct audio source selected. I switched to the optical cable but, then found that the better sound for my room came from the RCA set-up.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.
