PS3 problems and setup issues thread! - Page 16

post #451 of 2911
I have been trying to figure out how to get audio over HDMI from my PS3 to my Sony STR-DG1000 receiver. My setup is as follows: PS3 connected to receiver via HDMI cable (pass-through); receiver connected to TV (Sony KDS-50A2000) via HDMI.

In terms of settings, I have configured the PS3 to output audio by HDMI. I have configured my receiver so that it knows that the HDMI1 port is assigned to the Video 1 input.

I don't get any audio over HDMI with the above setup. If I change the audio output to Optical, I can hear everything loud and clear. I have tried two different HDMI cables (from different manufacturers), so I don't believe I have a cable problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm stumped - I don't know whether I have a component that isn't working or I've just missed something.

zoom, i have that receiver with a Ps3. Mine works fine. I'm not sure why you're using Video1 to access the ps3's HDMI port, I just use HDMI 1 on the remote with the ps3 connected to the first HDMI port on the receiver. The audio problem might be because you have the PS3 OS set up to transport audio over the toslink cable instead of over HDMI. You should be able to change this easily in the system settings on the cross media bar.

Sony might come to a agreement with apple on this issue and maybe sometime in the future with a firmware update you will be able to play your ipod video and music easily on the ps3. Lets keep our fingers crossed. But I would'nt hold my breath!!!

I can't do that because my iPod doesn't show up on my PS3.

I am using the same receiver and TV that you are. I haven't had any problems with the audio from my PS3. I would start by changing the HDMI 1 port back to the original setting. You don't need to set it to Video 1. You also need to check your HDMI audio settings on the receiver. If you have it set to output audio to the TV, you won't be able to hear any audio formats that are not supported by the TV.

You can either output audio through your receiver only or change the audio settings of your PS3. You will have to do it manually as the automatic set-up will go by what your receiver is capable of.

How do you set up the 20g to accept a wirless connection? I have a wireless adapter but with no luck.
post #456 of 2911
I also posted this in the direct view crt forums, because I'm not sure if this is a tv or ps3 issue but...

I recently hooked up a PS3 to a Sony KV-34HS510 via component cables. When I change the output resolution to anything besides the default 480i, I get a black screen with no picture. I've never had any problems with the inputs before, using the same component inputs to get 1080i from an hd cable box. Any ideas on why this is?

Also, I haven't gotten around to updating the PS3 software/firmware in any way. Did there happen to be an update that I need for this functionality?

Im having trouble getting on the net wirelessly.
Guy at Sony told me cause im getting only 64% sig , I cant connect.?
It sees my ip address but wont connect. Anybody help?
post #458 of 2911
Make sure you have MAC address filtering set correctly (either disabled or you've added the PS3). Also, for the ocvious in me, make sure you got the right passwords Check the logs on the router. They should give you some clue.

You need a wireless bridge or you could try this- http://shop1.outpost.com/product/506...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I am using a PS3 connected to an Onkyo sr604 reciever via HDMI with a 5.1 setup. What are the proper settings and selections in PS3 settings to get 5.1 PCM? Do I need to change something on the reciever?

I don't seem to get sound from my surround Left/Right speakers when playing PS2 games or demos/trailers off of the harddrive. I just want to make sure I am not missing something. Blue Ray movies are good and sound excellent through all 5 speakers. If I use optical audio out it gives me sound out of all speakers.

Is there something that I could have set up incorrectly or a way to choose all speakers? When doing the automatic HDMI audio set up in the PS3 dashboard, is there any option that I should/shouldn't choose?

I was able to plug my ipod into the ps3 and it was listed (under audio) as USB device (IPOD). I hit triangle, waited for awhile and adirectory structure showed up. I hit tri again next to ipod control and was able to copy all songs to the ps3!

Here's a random question re: audio capabilities as I plan for my set up (will be getting ps3 shortly)...
I have a 720p lcd projector that I plan to use with the PS3 from time to time. I would like to utilize the HDMI connection to send the video to the projector, due to better video quality and less bulk under the rug (one cable). Unfortunately, my receiver (panasonic, 5.1 surround) does NOT have an optical in.

Is it possible to utilize the HDMI cable for video, yet simultaneously send the audio to a receiver using the component (red/white) cables?

Thanks in advance.

Component audio? Do you mean RCA L+R? Then yes you can do that, but you'd be much better served buying a cheap surround setup, especially for games and movies.

Does the panasonic have coaxial in? If it does you can get a optical to coaxial converter. They are hard to find but they do make them. I am sure they are on the internet somewhere. If you use hdmi I don't think you can use component also?

It's a mistake to ever use a game console's DACs.
post #466 of 2911
I just purchased a PS3 and I hooked it up to my Hitachi PD427800TA via my JVC RX-D702B. I can get picture and sound but I can't get surround sound. My receiver says Linear PCM. This connection is by way of HDMI to receiver DVR/DVD in and HDMI monitor out to HDMI monitor in on the TV. I am not very AV savvy so can you help. I also have a Pioneer DVR 633H hooked up via component cables and a Wii with component cabels.

I'm not sure I understand how this is working. When I use a 2GB USB key with *.jpg or *.mpg files on it (in the key's root directory), the PS3 can't see them. However my 360 can see them fine.

Can the PS3 read (and hopefully stream) these types of a files off a USB key?

You have to press triangle and select the show all files option. By default the PS3 only looks for files in specific directories: MUSIC, VIDEO, PHOTO etc.

Thank you, I'll try that!

I just put some mp3's on the ps3's hard drive. They are lined up in a row under the music icon. I can play one song at a time. I do not see an option to play-all. Does anyone know if it possible to play all your mp3's at once on the hard drive without having to select them one at a time? I have selected shuffle while one song is playing but after the song is done the ps3 just goes back to the to the mp3 track list again.

Hi there.

About a week ago my PS3 controller suddenly started acting really weird. It is working like it should BUT in certain menus it is behaving really strange. For example, when I try to quit a game or shut down the system I press the PS button -> the menu comes up -> I'm able to select the menu items BUT none of the buttons are working. I cannot choose any menu item -> therefor I can never shut down my system with the controller nor can I quit a game. I always have to manually shut the PS3 down with the "button" on the front. This happens always when I'm going into this (quite essential) menu... It never happened before. I really don't know what changed. I tried to restore the system (default settings + complete format), I just upgraded to 1.54. Nothing helps...
Another thing is when I open the type menu the controller starts to act weird again and enters letters randomly...
The controller itself, with all its buttons, is working without a problem outside these menus...

PLEASE, has anyone made simular experiences and can provide a hint how to solve this problem. Please help me, I'm quite desperate as I purchased the PS3 as import with no warranty whatsoever. Thank you.

edited: btw it doesn't make any difference if I connect the controller per USB cable or wireless.

Tried a search for this answer, but couldnt find anything. How do you delete demos off the hard drive? Thanks.
post #474 of 2911
Problem solved!!! It was indeed just a stuck L2 button... Don't know why everything else but this menu and the typing/text box worked fine but it's ok now. Thanks everybody!

I have my ps3 connected to the Netgear HDXB101 Powerline HD Ethernet Kit. This is connected to my router upstairs. Everytime i play madden online, I get lag. Pictures from the online store take long to load and downloading updates and trailers take forever. I have a feeling this may be due to interference from another wireless ethernet bridge (slinglink) I have set up in the house for my slingbox av.

Is there anything I can do to improve the speed? I have charter cable modem service (3 Mbps). THANKS FOR THE HELP!
post #477 of 2911
Trigger, your powerline is Wireless?(only way interference could be happening). If so I would suggest purchasing the ethernet only version I have seen it for under $25 on froogle. There is also the possibility that the distance you are attempting to cross is degrading the powerline signal, can you hookup your modem by the PS3 to see if having it right there improves your speed? If so, then you may need to shift your setup around so your components are closer.
post #478 of 2911
Also, you can switch broadcast signals, see if separating your networks to like channel 1-3 for one and 7-11 for the other helps.
post #479 of 2911
I can't get the thing to connect to the net wirelessly. It can see my router fine, and gets an IP address from it, but it fails at the interenet test giving error 80710102. I've tried searching but come up wit nothing.

Anyone else have a problem with the PS3 browser not saving the AVSForum cookie? I was able to sign in to AVS and change pages a couple of times, but after a couple of page changes it didn't recognize me as being signed in anymore. I searched and saw one comment that alluded to this being a problem, but I couldn't find a thread addressing it.
