Samsung HT-Z520 RCHK Problem

There is no sound when I hook the HDMI cable from the playstation and tv into the unit. I have video but no audio. I have sounds when I play dvds and my ipod and also the radio works when played on the samsung, It's not the wiring touching, I have checked all of them 5 times. My wireless rear speakers also do not connect. Any idea what it could be? Thank you.

PS3 sound

My same Samsung receiver does the same thing as yours. No sound at all.

Let me be short.

If I hook up my PS3 to the HDTV it works. If I put a home theater system between the PS3 and HDTV the fun (not) begins. What I learned was to go with what works.

However many ask why and I'll not duplicate the web content today. Let's read how many get around the HDMI issue.

"You're better off using the HDMI connection for picture only (directly to the TV) and also connecting the fiberoptic digital output of the PS3 to your Onkyo receiver for decoding of the native DTS and Dolby bitstreams. This won't give you the full quality of the HDMI audio feed, because it's limited by the S/PDIF transmission format, but it will give you discrete surround sound, which you wouldn't get with a two-channel analog connection. "

So there you are. HDMI to the HDTV and fiberoptic to the HT.
