Hooking up my PS3 for surround sound

by kinger1623 / January 12, 2010 11:48 AM PST

I recently had my PS3 sent in for repair. When it was working, it worked fine with my surround, now I can't get surround sound. I'm wondering if I'm hooking it up wrong, so thought maybe someone on here could help.

I have an HDMI cable going from my tv to my DVR and one from my tv to my PS3. I also have audio cables going from DVR to receiver. Optical from PS3 to receiver and one from PS3 to receiver.

I tried hooking up HDMI end to PS3 with audio/video end to receiver and that didn't work. I just don't understand since it worked before and now it doesn't. Can anyone spot something that I am missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
