I've been through all the settings and can only conclude the PS3 is not outputting the sound via 2-channel, as it should.

Tomorrow when I have time I will going to my settings on my PS3 Slim and look at what it takes to select 2.0.
Have you done a system"hard" reset? Not a restore settings on page 42 of the owners manual. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130208162649AAR2TXQ
IIRC you have to "Save" new audio settings, are you sure you did this correctly.

Select that, and then go into your movie or game, and it should output in 2.0 sound and audio isn't clipped or impossible to hear because it's being mixed to 2 channels instead of 5.1 sound.

Yes I know, that's what I did. 2-channel sound is selected in the setup (automatically, via HDMI...I checked).. THEN, when I play a BD, the dialogue is incredibly faint, no matter the volume. I push SELECT on my PS3 controller and see that it's outputting 5.1 sound.

Exchanged my PS3 for a new one today and will test later tonight.

I did a restore settings previously and it didn't work. I called Sony Tech Support and they were incredibly clueless. I have exchanged the 3-week-old PS3 for a new one today and will test later tonight.

In the mean time, I will look into the hard reset option....thanks!

I have my PS3 connected to my SC-65 via HDMI and my SC-65 connected to my Panasonic VT-60 via HDMI. With the receiver off I am having no problem getting video to my tv, but I cannot get the sound to pass. I have checked all the settings on the recieved, PS3 and tv and I don't see an issue. The PS3 is set to pass both dolby digital and 2 channel stereo. The tv is set to tv volume instead of home theatre volume (in fact, when you turn off the reciever the tv automatically switches to tv volume). But no matter what I do I cannot get the volume from the tv. Any thoughts??

Could it be that the PS3 is not passing audio to through to the TV because it is setup to do so for the AVR? Try going through the audio settings process on the PS3 with the AVR off and see what happens.

I've updated the PS3 FAQ, Post #2 of this thread, to indicate the current firmware version is 4.55.

Looked through the FAQ for every instance of "NATIVE" to see what settings I need to toggle to get the PS3 to output video in whatever format it is, on the disc (ie, no scaling, no alteration of color space, etc) but it appears this topic is not addressed.

Does anyone know? I am using an external scaler, and it tends to work best with native rate sources.

UPDATE: Looks like it is not possible. For example, a DVD is *always* converted to 480P.

But hopefully that is the only exception. So far, that appears to be the case.

I'm running the latest firmware on my 320GB PS3 and I was just playing Dark Knight Rises blu-ray on my system through my Denon X1000 receiver and it was working fine for a while but every now and then it would glitch and lose audio/video. Has anyone had this happen before?

The disc is fine as I used it in my Sony blu-ray player without any problems, AVR is new and so is the HDMI cable; PS3 is only 2-3 years old.

DVDs normally stores video in 480i format but many HDMI chips do not support this format with only 480p being offered for Std. Definition.
