Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Audio with Optical is mixed improperly

I just got a PS3 and have it hooked up to my sony receiver via monster optical cable. I can hear sound from all speakers but the mix is really bad and it seems like I am missing some channels. For instance, in Burnout Paradise, I hear a load of car engine noise, but the voice and music I can barely hear at all. In Drakes Fortune, in the opening sequence I can hear normal speech but when it is supposed to be through the female character's camera, you can't hear anything at all. There is also little to no ambient noise or music which seems odd given the jungle nature of the game. It may be my optical cable but I just want to see if anyone else has had this and what they did about it. Thanks!

How to connect the PS3 to RX-V365 to get best sound qualitity in films. I have sony BRAVIO LCD wiht PS3 and I recently bought RX-V365 Yamaha home theater system. Please advice on connecting all three to...


You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

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 sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

No Audio


YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETUP AND SPLIT THE AUDIO SIGNAL VIA OPTICAL OUTPUT. THE PS3 WILL DETECT THE CABLE AND GIVE YOU A PROMPT.

SYTEM SETTINGS ON THE STARTUP SCREEN AND BE SURE TO NOT HAVE A GAME IN THE MACHINE AT THE TIME.

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.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
