I've reviewed all the relative threads on this but can't find a solution.
I've got a Samsung LCD 46" HDTV, and an Onkyo TS-SR606 receiver.
I've switched the HDMI cables around a zillion times but the best I can do is get video and internet connection on the PS3, but no freaking sound.
I've tried assigning the HDMI inputs by component every which way, no luck.
I do get sound from the HDTV HDMI setting, but just a video output for the PS3.
I've gone into the PS3 sound settings, and no matter what I set on manual, it always resets to automatic function with the HDMI setup. My speaker system is a 7.1, but I have only 3.1 set up right now. I assume that's why the automatic HDMI setting shows only 2 channel output. I don't care about that, just want to get sound back on the PS3
BTW, the console was just returned from Sony, repaired, after only 7 months of casual use.
I know I went through hell the first time setting it up, as I had conflicting setup info from all the components, not to mention using all the remotes and HDMI cables.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
