I'm curious, are you hearing sound and not seeing something on the Vizio sound bar acknowledging thats its 5.1 or are you simply not getting sound? Try using the Blu-ray discs setting function and switch to a different audio format. Unplug the Vizio sound bar and use the TV's internal speakers, if the TV plays it and the sound bar doesnt you know the problem is with the sound bar. If you switch formats and the sound bar plays it you know its the sound bar, you have to test these things out
On the Sony site it says the 46NX810 has 5.1 audio out but thats all it says, it doesnt get detailed as to what signals, DTS, dobly, dolby digitai, DD HD or master DTS.http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/sto...specifications
It may be your sound bar may not reproduce certain types of signal, your not being specific what types of signals your having trouble with or what Vizio bar you are using so otheres can look it up for you in order to help you better, or the play station is not set up porperly to send them. The setting to send them via optical or coax in the PS3 may very well be different then using HDMI, im almost certain it is.. I am assumiong since this is the NX810 thread you are using a NX810 HDTV. The link above is to the specifications of that TV, the KDL-46NX810 specificly which is what i own.
I have my system set up as described in the thread i linked going into my reciever and out to my TV from the reciever which is a 7.2 system.
If your getting sound you might be beating a dead horse, a Vizio sound bar is only going to do so much. Its synthetic surround sound at best.
