Source list for Samsung LCD TV when hooking up PS3

I have used HDMI cable from PS3 console to my home theatre receiver. The receiver was already hooked up to the TV by HDMI cable. However when setting up the TV input source list should I be setting it up under AV-2? I have under HDMI - home theatre DVD, under AV-1 a DVD recorder, Air-3 a VCR and Component - TV. I set it up under HDMI and Game and it worked the first time but the second time the PS3 menu will not come on. Also should the wireless controller be plugged in by USB each time the unit is turned on and would this affect the menu on the PS3 from not appearing?

    I have a simlar problem with my samsung 32 lcd. We hooked the hdmi cable to the ps 3 and the other end to the tv's hdmi hole and all i get is sound. We also pluged the other three pieces the yellow, red and white to all the ports in the back but still all we get is sound. Without the hdmi it plays on av 2 but I cant take full advantage of my hd tv and ps3 with my blue ray movies right now. Any adivce would be great.



    Thanks.

When you switch the ps3 on if you hold down the power button for more than 4 seconds it runs the display setup. and sets the ps3 to run in the best possible option. hope this helps

    Thank you so much! I was trying for the life of me to figure out why the PS3 wasn't working with my Samsung TV. I never knew about holding down the power button for it to scan the display! Once again, thank you SO much! You should be hired by Sony!

I have an RCA home theatre...model rt2910. I have hooked my PS3 via HDMI to the TV for the video and used an optical cable for the audio. I set the PS3 to send video via HDMI and audio via optical cable....


You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

See the section entitled "Connecting to HDMI Components" for an illustration of what I have described above.

What kind of discs r you using? Blu-ray players enforce on the wire encryption called HDCP. I got a call from a customer who was trying to use a cable box and ps3 hooking up to some splitter, then to a single HDMI on the tv. Turns out he was possibly breaking the handshake between the source and the television. Try a non copyrighted video, like a burned copy of a dvd or a home video. and see what happens.

Connect home theatre to ps3 to 32" lcd tv


if your tv and home theatre system as all hdmi or component hook ups then follow these steps but only use all one or the other cables.
1. hook the cable from the ps3 to the home theatre "imput slot" (you choose which one you want to use)
2. hook a cable to the output slot on the home theatre system to your imput slot on your tv.
3. turn on all three systems, put your home theatre system on the correct function (which ever slots you decided to put the cables in to the input slots) then turn your tv to the correct AV channel

Connect home theatre to 32" lcd to ps3


Depending on the year of your model of VIZIO your digital optical output may be tied to the DTV input only. Meaning the only time you will have audio coming out of the digital optical output is when your using the tuner and your on a digital channel. If your television is newer and the digital optical output is in white on the back of the television than it is tied to HDMI and the DTV Tuner and you will pass audio through the digital optical output when using HDMI or the Digital Tuner.

Now to get connect the HT: Normally you would run a digital optical cable from the source device to the home theatre system. Meaning if it was a PS3 you would run a optical cable from the Digital Out on the back of the PS3 to the Digital In on the Home Theatre receiver. If it was a DVD player than you would run the optical cable from the DVD player to the HT receiver. If you have a newer VIZIO and the optical output is in white and not black than you can run HDMI from the PS3 to the VIZIO and then run a optical cable from the VIZIO to the Home theater receiver.

You will have to adjust the audio setting in the PS3 to run audio out of the HDMI port if it is set to run audio out of the Digital Out or AV out. Also, if your going to run audio from the PS3 to the HT receiver through the Digital Out then you need to change the audio setting in the PS3 to Digital Out.

1. Select (Sound Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.
2. Select [Audio Output Settings].
3. Select the input connector on the audio device.

Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use. AV is 2 ch. only, Digital Out is 2 ch. & 5.1 ch, and HDMI is upto 7.1.
