Yep, when it comes to technology there is no such thing as future proof.

I find it hard to believe Sony can get any 3D to work.

All the PS3's (even the originals) came with HDMI 1.3.

If that was true they could bitstream which they can not do until the Slim which got HDMI 1.3

Slims are 1.3a and Fatties are 1.3. Or something like that.

It was the chipset that they changed - the original chipset did not have enough bandwidth. But the original PS3 always had 1.3 HDMI.

I have music set upon my Windows Media Player and have always been able to stream music to my PS3 without any problems. This afternoon I tried streaming music, but it kept on having frequent audio breaks. I tried a blue-ray to make sure it wasn't my HDMI cable and there were no audio breaks encountered so it is not my cable. When I play the files on my pc, they play ok. This is just a recent occurence as I have not experienced this in the past 2 yrs and to my knowledge, no changes have been made. Anyone have any thoughts?

Is it possible to get HD audio from the PS3 to AVR in 3d by using an optical cable?

No. But if you have both the HDMI and optical cables connected to your AVR whatever audio format you select for your BDs will play through the HDMI (HD audio, PCM, etc) and for 3D BD's it will 'automatically' use the optical audio since no 3D BDs will output HD audio on the PS3 - they're all downmixed to DTS/DD.

It is not possible to get multichannel HD audio using an optical cable under any circumstances, regardless of the player or the number of dimensions of the video.

HD (lossless) audio on a PS3 requires HDMI.

I'm having fun making slideshows of various family vacations etc, but am wondering what settings would be best for the PS3 and my TV. I have a Mits 65" DLP 1080p. I've been trying various settings and it seems that 3840x2040 pixels works well, but I'm not sure the files need to be so big.

Just wondering what other people might have found.

So is there any reason to use the optical cable, or should I just keep things simple and only connect the HDMI cable?

It's good to keep the files big, then you can zoom into them with the PS3 and see more detail.

True, but if my TV can only display 1920x1080 is there any reason to have 3840x2570?

Yes, zooming in, the pic will look better if it is higher res, regardless of your display resolution.
post #3646 of 4476
Good to know. I notice that my RAW photos show up fine on the PS3 using PS3 media server. I'll do an experiment and see if they look any better than the Jpgs at full resolution.

HDMI is fine as long as you don't plan on watching any 3D Blu-Rays.
post #3648 of 4476
I do plan on watching 3d blue rays. What purpose will the toslink cable serve if it can't pass HD audio?
post #3649 of 4476
Toslink never could pass HD audio only Dolby and DTS.

Or even if you are. You will get the same "core" audio -- lossy DTS or DD up to 5.1 channels -- with either HDMI or optical from a PS3, even if the soundtrack on the disc is DTS MA or Dolby TrueHD.

The only reason to use an optical cable is if your AVR woun't pass the 3D video to your TV, and so you have to connect the HDMI cable directly to the TV. Then you'd use optical for audio, and connect it to the AVR.

Actually, TOSLink can pass two-channel PCM.

Correct, but I was assuming multichannel sound, and also I have my doubts with 3D if it would be putting out even two channel PCM.

Hi, I really hope anyone can help me...
If I play a 3d Bluray on my PS3 I have an excellent image on my Panasonic VT20 but NO sound at all. The PS3 is connected to a Marantz receiver (hmdi 1.3) via HDMI. I've tried all settings I think.
The strange thing is that when I play downloaded 3d blurays via my mediaplayer both picture and sound works fine.
Is it perhaps that a 1.3 receiver can't process both 3d picture and (any) sound?
Can anyone please help?
Thx!

What are you trying to watch via BD? As already posted the PS3 can not pass HD audio so if you're trying to watch it with HD audio it won't work. I suggest either trying to "dumb down" the audio or connect an optical cable and config that .

That's been stated many times before.
post #3657 of 4476
Maybe a stupid question.

I just upgraded to the latest firmware on my PS3. Is there any setting that should be changed with this?

Thanks
post #3658 of 4476
Dankfoot -- I didn't make any changes to my 40Gb PS3 after I installed version 3.5 of the firmware. Everything seems to still be working as it did before. Despite the problems many posters had with various versions of the PS3 firmware, I didn't have a problem with any of them.

Even if you have one of the few HDMI 1.3 AVRs that can pass-thru the 3D video from the PS3 (in Frame Packing signal format), the AVR will not be able to extract the audio since the Frame Packing format does not have the audio in the same place within the HDMI signal format as used with earlier versions of HDMI. You need to connect an optical audio cable (i.e., Toslink) from the PS3 to your AVR and go into the PS3 settings to change the digital audio output to optical (instead of HDMI). Also on your AVR will will need to set the audio input to the specific optical input you have used to connect to the PS3. Downloaded 3D videos are not really Blu-rays as they have been altered in order to reduce the file size (40+ GB for a true Blu-ray 3D movie) and downloads are are not using the full 1080p resolution HDMI 1.4a frame packing format used by true Blu-ray 3D discs (i.e., downloads don't provide the video quality of an actual Blu-ray 3D).
