Hooking up a PS3 to my surround sound

I have a panasonic sa-ht920 surround sound dvd player hooked up to a panasonic PT-53x54 rear projection hdtv. I just bought a PS3 for the kids for gaming and I wanted to use the blu-ray on my hdtv. So far I've hooked up the PS3 using the hdmi cable to the tv, the picture is great and I'm getting the audio through the tv also but I thought if I hooked up the PS3 to the dvd player using an optical cable from the PS3 to the dvd player and turn it to the D-IN channel I'd be able to make use of my surround sound speakers. Needless to say I'm getting no audio at all. Am i doing something wrong or is it not possible to hook these two up this way or is there another solution I'm not aware of?

Thanks for any help on this.

Re: hooking up a PS3 to my surround sound

You have to go to the set up menu and let the receiver know that you are inputting dvd audio to the digital in. (assigning). that way, when you switch the receiver to dvd, it will look for audio from the digital input. your receiver manual will guide you through that set-up.
if that does not work, the fiber optic cable could be bad. this is more common than people would expect.
another option is to just rca cables to the receiver from the ps3. there is an adapter that lets you do that.
good luck

I can't get my Apple TV sound to go through the surround sound that's connected to my panasonic SABTT273 DVD player.

Try the HDMI straight from Apple TV to your receiver, or at least the TOS Link (Optical Cable)

You are listening to a Dolby Digital source and you either don't have a center speaker hooked up or, it's not enabled. If you only have 2 speakers connected to a surround receiver, switch your receiver from surround to surround off. If this doesn't work, or you need more help, specify your system and how it's all hooked up.

check audio out cables ( usually white and red ) unless HDMI.
Also see if theres another alternative output socket.
If non of these resolve your problem, possible audio amplifier/fets damaged.
