Hello,
I just purchased a VSX-70 Elite Receiver. I hooked it all up correctly, I have digital sound coming out of my speakers when watching my satalite TV, but no digital sound from my blu-ray player. It's frustrating. I'm using a PS3 as my blu-ray. I have 2 front, center, 2 rear, and a sub. All speakers work except for the sub, and I can tell the sound isn't as crisp as digital. Can someone help me with the setup. Thank you.

Your PS3 isn't set up correctly. The receiver just decodes whatever is being sent to it.

Which PS3 is it, the old fat PS3 or the newer slim model?

How is the PS3 connected to the receiver?

It's the newer slim model. Would assume, audio setup within the PS3? I'll do that right away.
Thanks!!

Oh sorry, the PS3 is connected by an HDMI cable, which is connected to the blu-ray slot on the receiver.

Set the PS3 to output BD/DVD audio to bitstream.

Then your receiver should display TrueHD or DTS-MA when playing blu ray movies.

I am confused. Are you getting no sound from the PS3 or sound from the full range channels, just not the sub?
