What you can do is use the av cables plug in the white and red into the back of your surround sound system remember you have to adjust your settings on your ps3 so it uses the av cables for sound ps u don't have to disconnect your hdmi

Connect ps3 just sound to surround sound


PS3 has an "optical out" port. Use an optical coaxial cable (something like this one XO Digital Optical Cable 2m 2 Metre Premium Install Series suitable for... ) to connect this to an optical in port on your surround sound receiver/amplifier.

Go into the sound settings on the PS3 and set it to output dolby digital 5.1 from the optical connection.

Switch your surround amplifier to the appropriate source.

I bought an opticall cable to play my ps3 threw my philips mx 3800d surround sound system but it dose nothing why wont it work please help


Hi,

You have to set your audio out settings, since your PS3 is probably connected via HDMI and both video and audio passes through it you will need to select your audio source through the PS3 audio output settings and set it to optical out, here is a guide you can follow: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/audiooutput.html

Hooked up ps3 using hmdi cable worked not working now using the


mpc heesman1 might be right...

However. I´m inclined to think that you did change the input on your TV. So your problem is another, this is what you have to to to reset:


1. Unplug the HDMI cable from both the TV and PS3.
2. Plug in the AV MULTI OUT cable (the red, white, yellow one provided along with the system) to both your PS3 and TV.
3. Set the TV input to the correct one and turn it on.
4. turn on the PS3 with the front button but DON´T release it, keep your finger on it, until you hear a second beep, thats when you release the button, the PS3 will start to identify what it´s connected to and will display it on your TV.

Hope it helps.

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.

Loss Of Sond When PS3 Gets Warm


probably the PS3 is overused, that's why it's warm. Shut it off when gets warm, or the least, after 4 - 5 hours of game play. That should help cool down the machines !

Sony Surround Sound, LG TV and PS3 connection problems


sounds like you are going to have to get the component cables for the PS3, you can get them on amazon, the only thing about the component cables is that the quality cant go as high as the HDMI cable but its close. but thats the only way i can tell you to have surround sound with your PS3
