I'm an installer for Digital EDGE in MD, www.GetDtvReady.com
There are a few ways to do this. First of all you will get the same quality (up to 1080p) if you use component (green, red, blue) cable, or an HDMI to your TV. The advantage of the HDMI is that it will also carry the audio surround sound signal.
If I were you I would use HDMI to the TV and then a digital optical cable from the TV to a surround sound receiver. This way you can get surround sound signal to the receiver for whatever the TV is watching, not just the PS3. This will cut down on the number of digital cables you need to plug into the receiver. It's also cool because you won't have to constantly switch the input on the receiver to match what you have on your TV. It will just stay on the TV input.
Keeps it simple.
Hi, I want to know the best way to connect my PS3 to a home theater system. I'm going to buy a home theater system, something loud, good quality, and cheap.(I'm looking at the Sony BRAVIA DAV-HDX285). The thing is, I know you can connect the PS3 to receiver and the receiver to TV, but I'm going to watch blu-ray movies and I don't want to loose video quality through a receiver that up scales to 1080p. Would I loose video quality if I connect the PS3 to a receiver then TV? The TV is an 1080p HD Samsung TV. I havent watch bluray movies YET, just regular DVD through the PS3.Can you also recommend some home theater systems? Thank You, I'll appreciate the help.
