Tv sound & surround sound

My ps3 is connected via hdmi to a new samsung 54 LCD 1080. How can I get sound on the tv & my surround sound speakers at the same time? I've played with the settings & it only lets me have speaker sound or tv sound - not both. Any easy solution? Thanks.

Do you have audio hooked up to your surround system from your tv ? if not you need this this to get both. from the PS3 to the TV and from the TV to the surround system. if you have HDMI on your surround system plug it in that way instead . PS3 to surround system then TV to to surround system .

Go to Settings/SoundSettings/AudioOutputSettings/AudioInputConnector or DigitalOut depending on type of input you are using for surround.

I have my ps3 connected to my t.v via HDMI, but want to get surround sound on my ps3, how can i do this as my receiver doesnt have optical or hdmi outputs?


Does your TV have any audio outputs at all? It is a new feature of a lot of TV's to have at least an Optical output. Use that to run back into your receiver if available.

No sound through tv speakers


Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
