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.

    So taking the information from "markevans" solution about assigning the
    receiver it was nearly right. As it turns out it was the PS3 that
    needed assigning, not the receiver, so basically you are telling the
    PS3 that you are splitting the audio off. Under the audio settings
    there was a way of telling it that you wanted to use optical output
    rather than the hdmi output.

    Thanks Mark for getting me pointed in the right direction and looking for the right thing.

    I have my PS3 hooked to my TV via HDMI and to my Panasonic receiver via an optical cable. I assigned the sound and video correctly on the PS3 settings, but I am still having a problem. Two channel sound and regular 5.1 come through fine, but if the BluRay disc or game is only in DTS, then it gives me an error message on the receiver and no sound at all . . .



    Thanks,

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 hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...


It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.

Hook me up, please!!!


Sure, the PS3 won't run at 1080p but 720p or 1080i will be fine use component video (Green, Red, Blue, + Red and White for audio, you should have 2 of these) for these they can support 720p or 1080i and should look great. Your dvd just connect with composite video (Yellow, red and White) it is really as good as you can get from a DVD anyway. Run monitor out audio (red and white) to the surround input on the DVD/Home theater system and you should be good.

I have an older Panasonic HDTV Viera and I am trying to hook up a Panasonic DVD/sound suround model SA-HT920 and am not having any luck getting it too work. I have the sound turned off on the tv speakers...


What does the TV really need from the receiver in all of this? Minimally, Component video for the DVD and managing the SA-HT920, not much else.

A TV is not normally an optimal source of audio.

Your broadcast TV-related sound would be higher quality and easier to obtain if you got it from the Cable or Sat box you probably have. Route ITS BEST (digital multichannel) audio directly to the SA and and its BEST (HI-DEF) VIDEO directly to the TV. You could also run vanilla analog audio to the TV so you can watch news in lo-fi audio on the TV.

The exact model of TV would be helpful to know as audio capabilities may vary.

Should you still feel the need to run TV-originated audio to the SA from the Viera through its headphone or audio output, connect that to any available analog RCA input.

Connection of a jack into the audio output will pass unmodified TV audio to the SA. That's a good thing as the REAL audio electronics needs an unmodifed source for best results.

PS3 surround sound


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.
