Hi, Right now im running a vizio sound bar MODEL NUMBER: VHT215 to my vizio 48 inch led tv. Connected to the sound bar via optical cable is my ps3 and runs hdmi to the tv, when I play certain blu-ray movies on the ps3 i get a Fmt Error on the sound bar any clue whats going on? I know it has something to do with my blu-ray movie because other's work im guessing the audio is written on the disk different or something along the lines of that. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is your PS3 set to output bitstream instead of PCM? I suspect you're getting the error on movies that default to DTS (or don't have a DD track) and you're bitstreaming. A movie's audio formats are listed on the outside of the case, or you can check through the movie's menu. If I'm correct, change to PCM output and that should eliminate the format error.
