I can get it to use my tv speaker when the receiver is on, but I'm using passthrough right now (yellow light on receiver is on) and no sound at all.
Also, I just watched some video on my ps3, went back to try and test portal 2 again. Wasn't working the first few times I did it. Put on the selection for cable box for a little while (tmz is incredibly annoying) and tried again. Lo and behold, it's working (for now.) I have changed a bunch of settings though - monitor out resolution is now auto, no more digital audio tied to the game input, section 4-5 (picture adjust) back to factory settings, and probably most important, listening mode is now multichannel.
By the way, when you guys press display on your remote, what shows up? When my ps3 is connected I see input multich PCM, 48khz 7.1 ch, output THX games (i changed it to test), 7.0 ch - which is weird because I only have 5 channels hooked up. However, I am mostly interested in whether nor not you all see multichannel as well when your ps3 phat is hooked up. What do you see?
