Ok, so I just got my PS3 a few hours ago. My setup is as follows:
PS -> HDMI to Pioneer vsx-74txvi
Pioneer vsx-74txvi -> HDMI to DVI connection to Samsung 56" DLP
Not too bad, eh? Well, no go. I can see the setup menus fine, but I get no sound at all. I have gone through the audio setup manually and automatically without results. I got Sony CS on the phone, who said someone else had called in with Belkin PureAV HDMI cables and had the same issue. I ran out and bought two new HDMI cables. Opened up one, a Philips IIRC, same issue. No sound to begin with and when loading a BluRay movie or DVD, the HDMI light on the front of the receiver just goes off and the TV displays "No Signal".
I have tried the analog cables that were included through the receiver and they do work, so, according to Sony, the unit is A-OK. Anyone have any ideas? I haven't tried HDMI->DVI right to the TV yet, as it is a bit of a pain to get in back there.
Any and all advice is more than welcome and appreciated! The cables obviously work, since I'm on the Sony support site via my PS3 right now! (though still without sound......and I'll lose video again the second I load media.....perfectly fine besides for that! :P).
