Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Playstation 3 Audio setup

I have a Playstation 3 connected via HDMI to a Panasonic 42" Plasma. In addition I have a Panasonic Home Theater that I want audio via Digital out optical cable to output audio.

At this point, on adjusting audio output settings I select digital out and choose the output format on the next screen (Dolby 5.1) and 'X" for enter and the system does not respond......any ideas?

    I also have PS3 connected via HDMI to my LCD TV and wish to also have it connected to my a/v receiver and Bose speakers for optional use. However, nothing I do seems to get the system to play through the stereo system.



    Does anyone have this problem solved?

Have you played a game already?
the PS3 system is known to lag the optical while on the X-cross media bar (menu).

All picture and no sound


Rick:
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

Have a PS3 connected via HDMI to Panasonic Viera 42". Can't get any volume while playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Volume is good on start up but not during game play. Can you help?


Sony PS3 has an Audio issue with HDMI, the only way to cure this bbuilt in defect is to use a seperate audio cable and use the HDMI for the video, I suggest the audio hook be a optical digital cable, if you don't have one they are avail on ebay very cheap, if you don't have the optical input on the TV then use standard RCA audio A and B cables

Ok you just have to do a video reset on the system, this is easy. first turn the system to standby/off with just the red light on. Then hold the front power switch (the system will turn on) till it beeps twice and shuts down. Then turn the system back on, this will reset the video/audio output to its default settings which are AV.

The sound goes out randomly when I'm using my ps3 I have a 42 inch sanyo and am connected with the hdmi cable. It's done it since I got the tv


When one thinks of quality home theater projectors, few brands cometo mind. Sony, JVC and Panasonic are some that do. Sanyo, on the otherhand, may not be on one's short list. However, they've been makinghigh-quality, affordable home theater projectors for years. Theirlatest offering, the PLV-Z3000 reviewed here, is no exception.Retailing for $2,999 - though depending on where you shop, that figuremay be much lower - the PLV-Z3000 is among the most affordablefull-featured 1080p projectors in the marketplace today. The PLV-Z3000 is a full-resolution HD projector (1920x1080p) with areported

Hi there, I've searched as much as I can on our work internet (which filters "games" so not a lot of help) but my problem is that with my PS3 connected to my new panasonic 65" 1080HD via...


Some Panasonic's have several HDMI inputs, but usually one of them will have a separate input for audio. You might move the HDMI to another port. If this doesn't apply I would run through the setup on the PS3, making sure that audio is configured correctly and not set for 24p audio. Most TV's cannot decode this audio format, unless it is very new.

Hope this helps,

No Audio


YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETUP AND SPLIT THE AUDIO SIGNAL VIA OPTICAL OUTPUT. THE PS3 WILL DETECT THE CABLE AND GIVE YOU A PROMPT.

SYTEM SETTINGS ON THE STARTUP SCREEN AND BE SURE TO NOT HAVE A GAME IN THE MACHINE AT THE TIME.

Hi,
Silly question, but have you gone into the setup for the AUDIO and chosen the correct signal connection i.e. Audio via HDMI, AV or something else?
