I just purchased a Polk Surroundbar 5000 and I'm having some issues that I'm hoping someone can assist with. My setup is simple; PS3 is hooked up to TV with HDMI and TV is hooked up to soundbar with digital optical cable. When watching TV the soundbar works perfectly and it also works perfectly when playing a bluray disc. However, I get no sound when using the PS3 for anything other than playing a bluray disc. I'm assuming I must have a setting configured wrong in the PS3 or possibly on my TV, but I've spent multiple hours trying to figure it out to no avail.

Any insight is greatly appreciated!

Thanks - Napsacker

99% of the time, if you go from TV to sound bar, all you get is 2.0 stereo. Set the PS3 to match this and see what happens.

Why don't you get an optical spitter, then put your ps3 and cable box into the one side and the optical cable out to the soundbar on the other side of the splitter. Since you'll be outputting video via hdmi and sound via optical, make sure you go into the audio settings and set the output to both. This way you can get surround sound on your tv and ps3.
