Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
PS3 is connected to a AV Receiver (Yamaha RX-V2500) via component and opticial (there isn't a HDMI connection port on the AV). AV is connected to Sharp LC-37GD6U TV. Everything works well, except Blue Ray disc playback (audio) is basically two channel.
There is a conflict in the fact that HDMI gives you the digital surround sound without the need for the optical lead and when you allocate the optical for the sound thats when the conflict starts, you can only use one or the other.

what you have to do is turn off your system then turn it on until you get 2 beeps. then go through the on screen instr.

Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.

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.
