Hello everyone,

I'm pretty new to home theater and had some questions regarding PS3 games. My current setup is a 32" Philips HDTV with SPDIF out and a Polk Audio IHT soundbar (which i bought to replace my tv speakers) connected to the tv with a coxial to optical converter and optical/coxial cables. When I play movies on the ps3 the sound works great, but when I play a game (Dead Space 2) the sound switches to the tv speakers. Am I correct in assuming that unless it says dolby audio supported on the game box, i won't have sound through my soundbar for that game? Is there anyway to play such games and have sound through my soundbar?

Thanks for helping out a noob.

Is the PS3 hooked up HDMI?

Also, go in to your PS3 settings and turn off every audio option except for the ones that your soundbar support. Without looking in to it too much, I'd guess that you want 2-ch PCM and Dolby 5.1 turned on, with everything else turned off.
