SOURCE: Audio problem when connecting to a PS3

It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.

SOURCE: No sound from digital cable thru AVR3200 after adding HDTV - DVD plays fine

you need a digital coax cable and then connect it to 6.1 also the digital cable type is not a coomon type so check that also

SOURCE: Digital Audio Output on TV

When using HDMI as the source, the Dolby Digital data will NOT be passed through. If you switch your cable box or satelitte receiver to PCM audio it will pass that through.

SOURCE: no HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???

You can also use a digital coax cable (color orange) to go into coax 1 for DVD coax 2 for cable box. Just make sure to set the coax in input settings. The coax cables are a little cheaper than the optical cables and work just as well.

SOURCE: hdmi connection doesnt work on ps3

By you saying that you have a new cable & tv, I assume you had the console conected tru composite before (red, white & yellow rca cable). This is what you need to do: Connect the PS3 to the tv with HDMI cable only, do not use the composite cable at the same time, reset your PS3 by pressing and holding the power button, when the power is off, for about 7 to 10 secconds, it would cicle from power off, on, then off again, it would also give you 2 sets of beeps, after the power is off, turn your tv on, make sure you select HDMI input on it, then turn your PS3 on, the console would set itself to the best resolution available on your tv. Give it a try!

I am trying to connect my ps3 to this TV. i have tried with AV ables and through HDMI but it does not seem to work. is there a problem with compatability?


hi,
PS3 outputs hi definition video through HDMI ie 1080p. Your tv will not support that resolution. Because its a HD ready one ie 1080i. If you wnat to connect the PS3 through the hdmi then you have to down convert the video output resolution of PS3 to 1080i. for that you have to connect the PS3 to any FULL HD tv and go to the HDMI video setup and down convert the resolution to 1080i. After that you can connect the PS3 to you tv. Surely you will get the video.

There is one more way to get the video in you tv. connect the PS3's component video output to the component video input of you tv and the audio output to the corresponding component audio input . Select component video input on the tv. You need a component video cable and a stereo RCA cable for that.
ok

Hooked up hd cable to ps3 and tv, now have no sound


Be sure to check the cables. You may need to replace them.

Try the cables with another component, if possible.

Also, try using AV cables to verify that it is not the TV and to simply troubleshoot:

To get back to default AV settings:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until it shuts off again.


Once you have verified that AV is working, turn off console, take out AV cables.


Plug in HDMI cable and turn system back on. Switch TV input to HDMI and it will ask you if you would like to use the HDMI cables, select yes again and verify.


If you cannot get sound, again, check the cables..


If new cables do not work, then your HDMI output is going bad, not from use rather normal wear and tear of the motherboard.


To get the best non HD picture, you will need to get some 'component' cables, rather than the standard AV (red, white, yellow).


Good luck

Tried to hook up ps3 to a different, older tv. was hooked up with hdmi cable and optical audio cable. bought a component cable that works with the ps3. I can't get a picture or sound. or anything else. ...


HDMI is a digital signal, so your TV and your PS3 are basically talking to each other over the connection at all times. That's why when you plug an HDMI connection into your PS3, it can detect the connection and try to switch right to it. Component cables don't work the same way, they only output information, so it's a one way street. Your PS3 is still outputting information, but it still thinks it needs to output to the HDMI port. The fix is pretty simple, and there are two options.

The Long Way
  1. Plug your PS3 into an HDMI TV.
  2. Change the Audio settings first, so your console outputs audio to a Component source.
  3. Now change the Video settings last, so the PS3 is outputting to a Component source as well.
  4. Your screen should go blank once you do this. Hit the X button once, wait a moment, then use the power button on the front of the PS3 and turn it off.
Now just plug the PS3 into the other old TV with the Component cables, and turn it on. You should have picture and sound now.

The Short Way
  1. Leave the PS3 plugged into the old TV, and turn it off with the front power button. Once the light has turned Red, hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds. Don't let go until you should hear the system beep twice.
Now you should be able to use your PS3 on the older TV without a problem.

The Short Way is a simple reset of your video card, it causes the PS3 to revert to outputting to it's out-of-box settings. If neither of these ways worked, check here at the Sony website, and one of those solutions may better fit you, but it sounds like one of the two solutions above should solve it.

Please leave a comment or rating letting me know if this solved your problem, constructive feedback is always welcome. Good luck with your console and good luck with your games.

My PS3 will not play sound on my Sony Bravia HDX275 surround sound system. I have the HDMI cable plugged from the PS3 to the TV. I have another HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV as well as a opitcal...


Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.
soundoutput001.jpg Input connectors on the TV or AV amplifier (receiver) PS3™ system output connectors Channels that can be used for output 2 Ch. 5.1 Ch. 7.1 Ch. HDMI HDMI OUT connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif in_maru.gif Digital Out (Optical) Digital Out (Optical) connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif - Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI AV MULTI OUT connector in_maru.gif - - 5.
Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)
soundoutput003.jpg 6.
Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. 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].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

Hope it helped.

How do i use it so my tv programming is in surround sound?


if the Comcast cable box has an HDMI output, it should connect directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Then connect the LG DVD unit HDMI output to the second HDMI input of the TV. Use two HDMI cables. Do not buy the expensive Monster HDMI cables. If you have already done so, I recommend you take it back for a refund, then buy the low cost HDMI cables which will work just as good and then you can bank the savings toward a new Porsche Boxter!! Now we have the video connected from both the cable box and the LG system.

Now--what do you do if the cable box does not have an HDMI output--just use its component output and your component cable (red, blue and green) to connect to the TV component input. This will still get the video to the TV and good HD pictures. Hum--do you have an HD cable box? You did not say and I just assumed that you did since you got the HDTV. If not, let me know with a follow up question and I will assist in that area further.

Now for the audio connections--The DVD player will not need any connections since it in the LG unit. The sound will come out the speakers when you start playing the DVD. The cable box is where we get the TV audio to feed the LG unit. If the cable box has an optical output, use an optical cable (again the low cost one)and connect to the optical input on the LG.
This will get the TV audio to the surround system. If no optical output, use the red and white (left/right) audio connections and connect to one of the two the LG audio inputs. To hear TV audio on the LG speakers, just switch to that input or the input associated with the optical input.

To watch DVDs, switch the TV to the HDMI input to which you connected the LG unit. For TV, go to the other HDMI input (or component input).
Switch the LG to the audio input to which you connected the cable box to get TV sound.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

Having trouble playing my Ps3 on a non HD tv after already using it on a HD tv


Hey bro try going down to circuit city, best buy and get the HDMI cord that converts to a Component cable on the opposite end. You can do this as long as the back of the non H/D tv has the Component Inputs on the back of the TV. If that does not work get the HDMI cable that converts on the opposite end to a S Video signal and connect that end to the S Video input on the back of your tv. I have seen these cables at circuit city in the playstation section. Again on one end of the cable it has your HDMI input to connect to your ps3 and on the opposite end of the cable it has the S video plug to run to the back of your tv and plug it into the S Video input. Same thing can be said for the HDMI on one end of the cable and the Component cables on the opposite end to run to the back of your tv. This will work if you find those cables. Good Luck.
