Thanks very much for your reply.
So you are saying that PS3 -> Soundbar -> TV should pass the video signal through? Or do you mean I should have the cable direct from PS3 to TV?
I notice on page 17 in the manual it says:You can output the audio signal from the connected HDMI compatible Blu-Ray player, DVD player, etc. with this unit and pass the signal through to your TV.
Yes, I made sure I had the soundbar set to the BD/DVD mode, and I have tried different HDMI cables, so I don't think the issue is the cable.
The TV is waiting on the correct HDMI channel but is just getting a black screen (albeit with audio I can hear when navigating the PS3)
To complicate matters I've just linked it with Viera Link as my TV is also Panasonic (46PZ85). So I have HDMI out on soundbar in to HDMI 2 on my TV. This links up fine. I have PS3 direct to TV HDMI 1.
I'm going to see if I can just redirect the PS3 to HDMI IN on the soundbar and see if its any different now.
Hmmm.. just tried it and I'm getting no video still.
When I set it up so its passing through the soundbar, with viera link on it correctly auto changes between the TV and BD/DVD output on the soundbar. When its on the HDMI channel it flips to BD/DVD and I can hear the PS3 - I just cant see it
