Please follow the procedure to enable optical sound output from your PS3 to amwt365:

  1. Connected the optical cable to your ps3. If you see a red dot on the end of the cable, you can assume that thing are going good, if you dont see red dot, ifs problem with the optical cable.try with different cable
  2. Connect the other end to the AMW home theatre, and you should see the same reddot even there in your AMW
  3. Chang the sound settings on the ps3 to optical use optical
  4. Switched all sound settings & input devices to optical from your AMW system

Now it should work fine, still if it doesnt work, then

  • Try to check, whether have you selected the optical out in the sound settings menu of PS3 and selected compatible sound formats?
  • Did you set sound output to bitstream in BD/DVD settings menu on PS3?

Please leave me comment, fi you need furthur assistance

    You should connect it to optical IN of your AMW and the setting depends on your AMW specification..

    Try changing the formats one by one, till you get sound..

    If this soluton works, please change the rating for this solution to better one..

unwrap the cables and match them to their colour on the back of the speakers, front side, back rear, front & woofer.
Plug in the connections to the back of the DVD player, again all coded.
Turn system on and it will guide you through the sound setup, what this does is tweak the speakers for balance and power, then place the sound check mic in the middle of the room, then its best to get close to the door and press ok to test system, then leave the room shut the door while the sound configures, it takes about 3 - 4 mins and high pitch noise shoots around the room. buy 3 Optical Cables for PS3/HDTV and a Splitter, all working perfect.
Put on your favourite film and sit back and watch,
Playing on PS3, you need to go into audio setup to change to optical audio, this then allows the system to go through the home cinema.
just switch on the TV setting on your home cinema (aka DVD player) and this triggers your sound for the PS3. If you are using this late like I am having a young family it is best to turn the night setting on (easy click on the remote) this reduces the woofer base allowing everyone to enjoy the eve/night;-)

I have been using it for a week now and am still amazed by the quality.

In a Nutshell - HDTV (with Optical Out), Playstation 3 (with Optical Out) and the Home Cinema (with Optical out), I advise buying 3 optical cables and a splitter, one from the home cinema to the splitter main input, then channel one from the splitter to Playstation 3 and channel two from the splitter to HDTV. Its best to note that the Optical Cables do take preference over HDMI Cable therefore no sound will work through your system, with PS3 you have to go into the Sound Settings and change from HDMI to Optical and select the 5.1 channel for total surround.

Very sorry to inform you that the digital optical socket at the back of your AMW T342 is not digital in but digital out. In other words you can connect the audio output of the AMW to another device like a AV Receiver or a Digital recorder etc and not vis versa. They have not provided a digital input and unfortunately your Panasonic TV only has an optical digital out for audio .

Adjust the audio output on your playstation and the television depending upon how you're connecting it to the television for picture and sound.

For an hdmi cable between the television and the PS3 only then adjust the audio ouput to hdmi on the PS3.
You do not need to connect anything else between the television and the PS3 besides an hdmi cable.

If you are using the colored plug type component or composite cables then it is av.

If you are connecting with a fiber optic cable to a surround sound system then it is set to optical.

Depending on what television you are using you would also have to change the Playstation to 48khz/96khz

Difficutly with connecting optical digital cables

Yes the digital audio cable should be inserted until there is a firm, clicking connection. It should only be able to fit in correctly with one orientation. It should be slightly difficult to remove when properly connected.

If your cable is slipping out, then I suggest you have a defective cable or (hopefully not) a damaged/defective optical connection port.

I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv

Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

  1. Connecting with an AV cable
  2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
  3. Connecting with an Optical Cable

Connecting with an AV Cable:

  1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
  2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
  3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".

Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

  1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
  2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.

Connecting with an Optical cable:

You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

  1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
  2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.

Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable

Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver

Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

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.
