Hi Everyone,

I bought a new TV and am trying to connect my PS3, Yamaha Receiver and TV. I am new to this, so I apologize in advance for my pitiful explanation of the connectors I am using and their configurations. May the force be with you in deciphering my mapping frown.gif I am certain you'll need more information so please don't hesitate to ask!

My receiver is old school, so no HDMI.

I have the 3 systems configured as such:

PS3 Composite Cable with yellow going to TV and red/white going to Receiver (the row marked DVD)
RCA Audio Cable (I think this is the proper name. It has red and white connectors on both ends) from the Receiver (the row marked D-TV/CBL) to the TV.

This is the same configuration I used on my old TV and everything worked great. However this time around, the sound only comes out of the receiver when I use the Playstation. If I just play the television, the sound comes out of the television. I want it to always come through the receiver.

I am beginning to believe this is a TV setting rather than a mapping issue, but that is what I'm turning to the experts smile.gif

Thanks so much for any guidance you can give!
I can send pictures if it will help!

Check your ins and outs.

how many inputs does your AV receiver have.
It would be simpler to have
your PS3 AV go into your receiver (red white and yellow) in say the DVD input.
your TV audio going into your receiver (red and white) in say an AUX.
your receiver TV output (yellow) going into your TV AUX input.

to watch TV select AUX on your receiver.
to play PS3 select DVD on receiver and Aux on TV

just my 2c
