Help setting surround sound to ps3

6 replies 63 views Edited Apr 10, 2013
Hello, I'm having troubles with my Sony str-kg800 system. I've got an optical from ps3 to surround system and a hdmi cable from ps3 to tv. Just can't get any sound from it Smiley Sad I'll be very grateful for ideas. Thanks

Did you go to your Audio Settings and change the output to the Optical Digital one?

Also make sure you have the right surround sound settings. I had a problem in the past with no sound. The problem was, the playstation was trying to do DTS instead of Dolby so I had to uncheck it.

Thanks for the suggestions, The only way I get music is using optical from the ps3 to system and hdmi from ps3 to tv. I have no control over the sound. Can't turn it down on the system nor tv and only works when setting is on auto not analog.

like dude said above but when you go into settings on ps3 and down to sound and when you switct it to OPTICAL and continue that next screen will have DOLBY 5.1 Box checked and others, if your receiver doesnt support one that is checked like AAC then it wont work. just try checking boxes Dolby Digital 5.1 & DTS 5.1 and see if it works. if not, uncheck DTS and try again. my receiver wont run AAC so i keep that unchecked.

 

it all depends on what your receiver handles in formats. 

 

and make sure your like in on receiver is on tbe right input.
