Re: digital audio problems
Try using a different cable for starters, regular rca, another optical or coaxial.
If the optical works, then its a cable problem.
If the coaxial works(and another optical doesnt), then its a cable/jack problem.
If the RCA works(and the rest don't), then its a problem with the digital output.
Try blowing into the holes, and if nothing works and you can't find any other advice, contact Pioneer.

Receiver does support 3x component inputs and one component output. Both these can carry only video signal, not audio. So you have to connect audio separately, either stereo via analog 2x RCA connectors and digital SPDIC via optical (2x) or coaxial (1x) cable.
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.)
There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input. You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.
I have the same receiver... You can try pressing the Option button and choosing Signal Info to see what audio signal the receiver sees and if that changes over time. Maybe the cable box is not outputting according to specifications... TV can live with that, but receiver maybe can't. You can also try to connect the cable box via SPDIF cable (optical or coax) to see if it helps or not.
For this Sony, you have to use separate audio cable(s). Either optical in BD or Digital Audio in DVD (single coaxial cable will do the trick) I bet the display says UNLOCK. I had the same problem, very dumb.
Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
