Question about NAD T755 Receiver
Hi - Not a flash of brilliance I know, but have you switched physically the HDMI cables between the PS3 and STB before connecting to the NAD?
Also - You might try (if you have them) a set of component cables from the STB to the receiver to try and see if the cable box may be having having difficulty with your NAD.
If you can let me know the results of cables switching I'd appreciate it. On a personal note I both love and hate HDMI, having had similar problems 8^)

Hi, if your receiver supports HDMI audio, so no, you do not need to hook up an
optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver for audio. It would actually
be poorer quality audio that way.
First connect an HDMI cable from the PS3's HDMI output (it is the only HDMI port on the PS3) to one of the receiver's HDMI inputs.
Then connect an HDMI cable from the receiver's HDMI output (there is only one HDMI output on the receiver) to an HDMI input on the TV.
Those are the only two connections you will need to make, unless you also want to hear your TV programs through the surround receiver. You didn't say if you had satellite or cable, or if you are using an antenna for TV reception.
If you have a satellite tuner or cable box, connect it to the receiver using an HDMI cable. If that isn't an option, your receiver supports other connections. Use a component video cable and an optical audio cable if there is no HDMI output from your cable/sat box. In that case you would want the cable/sat audio output set to Bitstream.
If you are using an antenna with the TV's built-in tuner, then you can run an optical cable from the TV's optical output into the receiver's optical input. For audio, you would switch the receiver input selector to the optical input for TV, and switch to the PS3 input for that audio. The TV inputs would also have to chosen to see the correct video.
If you have the Slim PS3, then it doesn't matter if the PS3 HDMI audio output is set to Bitstream or PCM, both will give the same audio end result. If you have an older "fat" PS3, then the PS3 HDMI audio output has to be set to PCM mode.
