SOURCE: Does not decode Dolby Digital 5.1 from my cable box

If you have an HDMI cable plugged into the cable box it may only output 2.0 on the digital audio output. Set the HDMI audio to off or 2.0 and then set the cable digital out to Dolby.

Hello,
I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

Hello,
It sounds like you probably have a broken optical cable. Optical cables are made of glass and are quite fragile. You have to be very carefull to not bend it or smash it. Try connecting another optical cable, or you can also revert back to the stereo analog plugs to eleminate the possibilty of having a bad receiver.
Good Luck

To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].

Is your tv wired to a cable box or an HD antenna?

Case 1: If your signal is weak, then the chances are that the feedback from your tv to the receiver's processor cannot interpret a Dolby Digital signal.

Case 2: Check the TV MENU AUDIO setting. Does your TV have a ON/OFF feature for the optical output, or any aux. speaker outputs?
