So Im having a bit of an issue here with my audio on the PS3. Im using it temporarily as a 3D Blu Ray Player. I dont have a receiver that is capable so I had to run the HDMI direct to the TV and use optical audio direct to receiver.
Before I had my PS3 via HDMI direct to receiver for audio & video because I did not have a 3D TV, this was about a week ago. I had just watched Transformers Dark of the Moon testing out my new sub and it sounded great!
I then switched to the optical audio since I just got a 3D TV and the audio is severly lacking, bass is hardly present. I know the only options for optical include Dolby/DTS 5.1 but even on those, I had some serious bass from the same movie on the HDMI connection. Now, on the current optical audio, very slight. Dark of the moon sounds so bland
Is this because of the audio connection?
Yes, I have the PS3 to output via optical before you ask
Am I just sore out of luck until I can get a 3D blu ray player with Dual HDMI?(cant afford a 3D receiver at this moment)
Its not my sub either because my Verizon FiOS box is 3D Capable, and I have it hooked up as well just like the PS3 and the bass is a plenty, that is running on optical audio as well.
