What's the model number? Did it come with a manual and did you refer to it and the PS3 to make sure what you're doing is right?

Describe the source(s) that produce the 'hum'. Perhaps what you describe as "hum" is digital bitstream noise (DTS not decoded). The source is always a player in any audio scenario.

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

I have an LG DVD Reciever HT462 which i want to connect to my PS3. My PS3 is all set up correct as I have spoke with Sony. I have the PS3 connected via a HDMI cable to my TV and an optical cable running...


Hi there,
It would appear from what you have said that you have everything connected properly. Maybe a silly question, but make sure you select the digital input on your LG to get the sound from the PS3. If there is still no joy, unplug the optical from the back of the LG unit. Look at the end of the Optical cable that should still be connected to the ps3. Is there what looks light a red light there? if so it means that the optical is getting to the LG system and the LG sytem's digital in port is Duff. If there is no "Red Light", unplug it from the PS3 and look directly at the optical out port on the ps3. Is there a Red Light there? if there is, you need a new optical cable. If there is no red light, you need to enable the digial output on the ps3. If you have and it's still not "red". the optical port is duff.

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.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

No sound through tv speakers


Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

Surround Sound from PS3


Are you getting any sound?

If your marantz amp is part of a home cinema system then depending how old it is will depend on if it will do it automatically.I have just bought a sony surround system and it detects the signal range ie it knows it is being transmitted in 5:1 surround.If you have an old system you may have to do this manually, this should not be diffecult there should be a sound setting.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
