I hooked my PS3 to my receiver (HK AVR 347 in case it makes a difference) using a HDMI cable. I ran the cable from the PS3 to the HDMI 2 input. When I turn on the PS3 and switch to the HDMI 2 input using the receiver remote, I get audio but no video. I had initially used some of the wires that came with the game and had the PS3 connected directly to the TV and it worked fine. Does it change anything now that I've switched cables and am running it through the receiver first? Any suggestions?
PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like
sound problem, video problem etc.... Good news is that these all
problems can be repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one such guide

If you would like both video and audio to output through the HDMI cord, make sure to go into the PS3's video settings and select HDMI output there, and also go into the audio output settings and select HDMI. This should make the audio come out of the TV's speakers.
If you're using separate speakers, such as a surround sound system, use a different audio output (such as the red and white component cords) and plug those directly into your sound system.
Are you using hdmi cable? I would try different hdmi input or try different cable if you have one. If still using a/v cable make sure the white and red audio cable are plugged to the same input as your video. If that doesn't work you can try resetting the video on your ps3 by holding the power button until you get the 2 beeps.
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.
ps3 comes with an av jack set as well as hdmi. now you can use the hdmi to the TV and run audio out from the TV to the receiver and that should work but if you don't have audio out on the TV then you need to go get the av cable
Since you are running the to LCD monitor instead of a LCD TV this is where you run into the issue. because the monitor is not setup to pull out the audio from the HDMI connection. So there is a few ways that you maybe able to to this.
The first one is look around at the different output cables out there the PS3. (I just got one so I do not know the accessories that are out for the PS3) This is becoming a common setup so if Sony does not have cable that will split off the audio then a 3rd party group may. I know they have one like that for the XBOX 360.
Another you can try is if your monitor will except an analog connection you may need to go that way. That is how I have my XBOX 360 that is my room connected. I have a RBG HD to VGA connect the VGA input on the monitor and the audio going to my sound card.
The reason why I suggested going analog is that right with our curent technology that if you are run with the 2 formats at the same time you will get audio/video sync issues. So you need to go all analog or all digital.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this and/or need me to clarify anything.
