Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

I have purchased a sony playstation 3 and have tried to hook up the digital optical cable wire to the receiver. I still get no sound from the playstation thru the receiver. Everything else works on the receiver as I get sound from the stereo and tv when it is in video and tuner mode.

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.

I just bought a Playstation 3 for the first time. I have it hooked up through HDMI using an HDMI to DVI converter to my TV. It looks great, but there is no sound. Even hooking the optical sound output to...


On your PS3, go to the Settings tab, then scroll down to the "Sound Settings".

Once in Sound Settings, select "Audio Output Settings"

Here you should have 3 options: HDMI; Optical Digital; and Audio Input Connector

Choose Optical Digital

You should be all set.

Also, make sure after doing this your stereo is on the correct channel.

Sony PS3 has an Audio issue with HDMI, the only way to cure this bbuilt in defect is to use a seperate audio cable and use the HDMI for the video, I suggest the audio hook be a optical digital cable, if you don't have one they are avail on ebay very cheap, if you don't have the optical input on the TV then use standard RCA audio A and B cables

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.

Playstation 3 hook up


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not help try contacting sony at

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.
