Question about Sony STR-DE985 Receiver

Open Question

Sony STR-DE985 W/ PS3 loss of sound I have the Sony receiver with the PS3 for bluray, when watching movies it cuts out A LOT. Is there a way to fix this without switching the bluray settings on the PS3 to bitstream? There is quite a bit of difference in sound quality.

SOURCE: No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable

Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.

SOURCE: 160gb ps3 won't play games or bluray discs

Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.

SOURCE: Bluray movie playes sound but no picture, HDCP problem?

In order to provide the proper solution to this, I need to know how this unit is connected to the TV. Also, when using the PS3 in game mode, do you get both picture and sound? What is the make and model of the TV involved here?

There are a number of reasons for the loss of picture. I will assume that you have selected the correct video input and video type. But for confirmation, please provide those details as well. Once you update this, I will try to give you an explanation and potential solutions.

Thanks,
Dan

Manually tuning the reciever


you should be able to tune in manually.
press tune
press fm or am
press d. tuning
enter the frequency of the station 4 or 5 digits ie 9370 or 10450

another thing to look into would be getting a yagi fm antenna, they are directional and although you may have to rotate it for best results, they work great.
