Okay. So I have been reading so many threads about this. Ive learned a lot. I still have a few questions about the optimum setup.

Here is my gear:

PS3 FatBody 80GB

Yamaha RX-V465

I know that I have to output the audio via hdmi using PCM, because it cannot pass bitstream.

My only question is is there anything on the reciever that I need to setup to make it optimal. Is there anything i need to check or turn on/off to get the best sound?

I believe i have the correct setup, but I just got my setup completed and I really want to have the best sound.

Thanks for the help in advance, as I can always count on avsforum members!!!

If you set speaker distances, trim levels and bass management up in your reciver you should be just fine (the auto setup normally does ok for normal situations).

The PS3 PCM makes things simple. When the PS3 first came out HDMI was a total mess and PCM is the simplest thing for HDMI audio processing so they just went that route. You are not missing anything.

Are you running 7.1?

Have Fun!

Thanks guys for the responses. I have the klipsch quintet iii with the klipsch sub 12. I think I have it right(like I said before) and you guys make me feel confident now that it's right. It sounds extremely good and the surround effects are wonderful ( transformers dark of the moon confirmed that for
Me (: ) and no, it's just a 5.1 setup. I just wanted to make sure the reciever isn't trying to decode it after the ps3 decodes it. As long as I have it on straight I should be fine right?

If the PS3 outputs PCM, then there's nothing for your Yamaha to decode.

Some people believe that the decider in an AVR will be superior to the one inside a BD Player, but I haven't seen anyone complain about the decoder used in a PS/3.

Decoding refers to the process of decompressing a codec such as DD 5.1 or DTS to produce PCM. If that's been done by the player, it can't be done again by the receiver. So, there's nothing to worry about.
