Re: hdmi no sound

Check your Sound Settings on the CrossMediaBar and make sure that you have the audio set to come thru the HDMI and not the component. That should do the job.

No sound game plays fine


Check sound settings, but more than anything else check the sound cable. If you use the component (red green and blue) cables or if you use the yellow video cable you will need an external audio connection. The audio cable must be connected to the right input on TV or home theater. Most consoles allow use the red and white audio connection cables (AV), there is also an optical audio cable that can be used.
If you use HDMI you do not necessarily need external audio cable. In that case ensure that HDMI audio is not disabled on TV or console settings. Test using a different HDMI port on TV. Do not forget to turn power off when you connect or disconnect cables. A TV can easily be damaged by disconnecting cables with power on (HDMI carries +5V).

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.

No surround sound when playing PS3 through HTDDWG700 via 2 HDMI

The HTDDWG700 does not transfer the audio through the HDMI cable that the vision goes through. To solve the problem i got an optical cable and connected the PS3 to the receiver with the optical and put the HDMI cable from the PS3 to the tv.

All of a sudden, no sound on PS3, great pic though. Using HDMI cable...have checked all connections, reset PS3, etc. Still no sound! Guy from Sony said my HDMI cable(Monster) could be bad?! No sound, but...

I agree with the guy from Sony, the reason for this is the HDMI cable should support the transfer of audio and video over the same cable, if your only getting video over it, the cable could be defective, or its possible that you have another cable in the spot where speakers should go that is over riding the HDMI.

What exactly is the HDMI cable plugged into? Is it direct from TV to PS3?
If you have a stereo set lying around that supports HDMI - try having it run through that.
Is the TV muted? check if you can get sound while watching normal TV channels.
Worst comes to worst, use RCA Plugs remembering that the composite video is (yellow) and stereo audio is (white and red). You don't need to connect the composite video, but connect the stereo audio.

If this did not solve the problem, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you once I can =)

Surround sound for ps3 with a hdmi cable..

you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV

PS3 - Sony Reciever HT-SF2300 - Aquas A83 LCD TV

Make sure you have selected the HDMI output option in the PS3 menu, otherwise you will get no picture or sound, connect you standard cable to your tv first which came with PS3 to do this first.

PS3 hdmi connection

With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

Xbox 360 sound problem

HDMI carrys no sound you still need to have the audio cables from the component plugged into the tv. If this doesnt do the trick you should call MS or check your TV's settings maybe there is a special function when using that resolution. Hope this helps.
