So, I turn on the PS3 manually, connect the PS3 controller with a USB and I'm able to navigate and play with the controller while the PS BD remote still not functioning. As soon as I unplug the PS3 controller it stops working. Sony tech support suggested to reset the PS3 controller so I did and it still didn't work. My PS3 signs in to the Network automatically and I noticed that my PS3 doesn't sign in automatically when I power it on. I turn off my PS3 and turn it back on again and it does sing in to Network automatically. As soon as the PS3 signs in to Network the PS3 controller and PS BD remote work fine. Am I having some kind of PS3 Network adapter failure?

Today I did a full Restore. I was setting it up and during Network setup "Wireless" I got a message "No access point found". I connected an Ethernet cable and was able to get on the WEB. Tried wireless again and no luck. I have other wireless devices and they find access point within seconds. Also this time the controller didn't work even while I was signed in the Network (Wired connection). The controller works while it's connected with USB. My best guess is it's the Network WiFi adapter.

Fresh batteries? Do you have other bluetooth devices that could be interfering? Since both controllers get funky I'm going to say that the problem lies with your PS3. Can you try moving it to another room to rule out interference issues?

The only other thing I have wireless is my iPod but that never did interfere. I have a PS2 since it came out in 2000 I believe and the only problem was the network adapter.

Hey all, sorry if this has been asked already but I did check & could not find an answer to my problem.
My Setup:
"fat" PS3 going to Denon AVR 591 via HDMI.
Denon AVR 591 going to Toshiba 52LX177 via HDMI.

My Problem:
If I watch a blu-ray (e.g Breaking Bad Season 1) & set the Denon's HDMI Audio Out to TV I can only hear background audio --no dialog-- thru my TV's speakers. I've messed with my TV's audio settings to no avail.

If I leave the Denon's HDMI Audio Out set to Amp I get all the audio channels through my surround system & it sounds great but it isn't practical late at night as my apt has thin walls & annoying neighbors.

I am not using HDMI Control (yet, as I'm not sure I understand it).

Anyone run into this problem?

Ok, I narrowed down the issue a bit. It appears to be related to my PS3's audio settings (& there are alot of audio output options!!!) If I use the Automatic option for selecting Audio Output Settings my PS3 will ONLY choose:
--DD 5.1
--Linear PCM 2ch 44.1khz
--Linear PCM 2ch 48khz

and the problem is gone

But I did a little more messing around & found that the problem returns if I manually select any of the following PS3 Audio Output settings:
--Linear PCM 2ch 96khz
--Linear PCM 2ch 192khz
--Linear PCM 5.1ch 48khz
--Linear PCM 5.1ch 96khz
--Linear PCM 5.1ch 192khz

I just want to get the best quality sound I can whether I'm using my TV or Stereo speakers (I only have a 5.1 surround system so I don't care about the 7.1 options) without having to always check & uncheck options so can anyone tell me what the above Audio Output Settings should/would be used for? When I play a videogame I can check EVERY Audio Output Setting without noticing any issues but I'm not sure if that is necesary (or wise).

Sorry for the rambling!!!!

I was having an issue like that while playing Assassins creed 2 on my PS3. No speech but background sound only. Don't know why.

I can login to my DirecTV account on my PC, but can i do this on the PS3 browser?

Those settings, as you probably already know, are equating how you have your system connected (HDMI). The AVR (if it's like my Denon's) will only show what's available and it will change/need to be re-run if you unplug your HDMI cable from the back of the PS3 (I learned this the hard way after my 3D options were 'gone'). Since the AVR is set to 5.1 surround when you send it to TV only now your TV has to output 5.1 and chances are it doesn't have that feature so it's ouputting 2 channels - no center. I suggest trying your audio settings on your TV first to see if there's options to get all the sound to come through before option 2: different settings in the AVR.

Hi,
I'm going with this HDD to replace my 80g. Should be fine, right? Just holding out for a sale price.

Western Digital Scorpio Black
WD5000BEKT
500gb 7200 rpm
2.5" Sata 3.0

Yep, that should work fine. If you want to save a little coin, you could go for the WD Scorpio Blue- the PS3 can't take advantage of 7,200 rpm versus 5,400 rpm, so the performance should be identical.
post #3911 of 4476
You do have some HDD performance increase but marginal. I replaced mine with a different 320gb 7200 drive from orginal 80gb and I did notice a couple seconds knocked off installs/load times here and there. *fat ps3*
post #3912 of 4476
I have updated the PS3 FAQ (post #2 of this thread) with info on firmware version 3.70. The main enhancement for Blu-ray playback is 3D related as this firmware adds the following new capabilities:
  • 3D playback of Blu-ray Java ("BD-J") content is now supported. You can now enjoy BD-J content recorded on Blu-ray 3D discs.
  • DTS-HD audio output is now supported while playing Blu-ray 3D content*.
post #3913 of 4476
How can I check to see if my PS3 is indeed outputing bluray at 1080/24p? I have kuro111fd so I know it can display it correctly. I have the setting "on" in the PS3 video settings. When I check info while playing BD's I don't see anything showing it on?

Just got the PS3 slim and was trying to set up audio for netflix. I keep getting 7.1 lpcm when streaming. Was looking in FAQ and couldn't find the answer to fix this.

Hi jsil, its sending MultiCh audio due to the recently new software update (Netflix v.2.04 ) back in the middle of August. Hopefully they will fix this on the next software update as posted at another thread, here.

JChin,
Thank you Sir.
post #3917 of 4476
I've got the 1st generation 80gb PS3...I've noticed that lately when watching movies my TV screen will get darker for a few minutes and then get brighter again. My TV does not do this when watching it through my Direct TV receiver so that pretty much means the PS3 is causing this. I don't see any settings that I can change on the PS3 to stop it from doing that...Any ideas what is going on? Is this an early sign of something going bad?
post #3918 of 4476
Howdy folks!
Can someone tell me the correct on/off settings for audio types for a PS3 Slim when connected to a Bravia Tv (KDL-60NX720) for pass-thru audio to my non-HBR decoding AVR (Yamaha RX-V2600)? I have PS3>HDMI to TV, Optical out to AVR, and want the PS3 to decode everything and send a 5.1 signal to the TV (not sure if it wants LPCM or Bitstream). For instance, if I put in Tron: Legacy 3D disc which offers only Master Audio (English) as 7.1 - By the time it made it to my AVR it was 2 Channel and sounded as if it *was* a multi-channel that had 5 channels missing (ie, L&R were present and the center and surround channels were not audible nor indicated) I have tried turning off almost everything in the HDMI Settings on the PS3 and toggled Bit/PCM and still only ever got 2 Channels on discs with anything higher than 5.1 DD (for instance, dvds with 5.1 passed fine)

Thanks!

You need to BUY a NEW AVR and understand why HDMI is important.

I suggest some PS3 Reading HERE

Ok;

a) My 2600 has HDMI, it just doesn't support 3D (v1.4) so I didn't come for advice on HDMI spec, I am well aware of the limitation of my AVR's ability - hence the workaround I have accommodated.

*For the record, the TV DOES pass-thru 5.1 audio, its not a 'dumb' 2 channel downsampler, and I realize I didn't mention that, nor did I account for people on this thread not knowing that.

b) The PS3 WILL decode and pass all of these codecs (decoded) nearly Identically to what newer avrs do with the native stream, so its not 100% required to buy a new avr every time a new codec appears.

c) I have been subbed to this thread since the beginning, so thanks for pointing me to info I already read. This is a community for helping each other, is it not? RTFM is slightly less helpful than I believe you think it is.

d) I agree with you - I want a new AVR, and have sought advice elsewhere on the site for that purpose, unless you'd like to link me to google.com so I could sort it out myself... But in the MEAN TIME while I weigh my next $1000+ purchase of a new AVR, I'd like some help making the current configuration work, "throw money at it" is not the best advice I've had all day.

**The TV DOES pass 5.1 Audio, it does NOT downsample to 2channel like most TVs**

You said you were using OPTICAL - that does not support the
PS3 doing decoding. Therefore - I assumed you had no HDMI.

I see your confusion, what I wrote was "I have PS3>HDMI to TV, Optical out to AVR" which didn't convey the same as "I have PS3>HDMI to TV, Optical out of TV to AVR"

FTR, all sources are HDMI into the TV, and the tv (should) is passing 5.1 out to the AVR. I realize I can do Optical from the components to the avr for audio and HDMI to the TV for video - I'm just supposed to be able to do it the way I am, and know its a settings issue (I am asking to much of the TV - not sending a plain enough 5.1 signal) so i want to be sure I have the PS3 doing all the decoding onboard and passing a plain 5.1 pcm stream to the TV.

You have everything hooked up backwards.

I'm done responding.

With that response, you don't deserve an answer. But I will anyways. TVs can only output a Dolby/PCM signal from their internal tuner and network connections like streaming . They cannot pass that audio thru from an external HDMI source. In other words, your hookup is backwards. You owe drhankz an apology.

People like you do not want to listen or read manuals.

I'm sure your Yamaha RX-V2600 Manual does not tell you to hook it up this way.

There are OTHER WAYS to get around the 3D Video problem because your AVR will not pass 3D.

But with your attitude - you will not get the secrets from me.

Wow. I'm sorry if I find it difficult to get the answer to the actual question instead of advice on how its all wrong. I'm sorry that I cannot make it clear that my tv does actually pass dd from input hdmi sources, contrary to your generalized statement. my intent is not to be 'that guy' I do read the manual, I do the research and then I ask questions. I simply do not appreciate being told I am wrong or unaware when I am in fact not. please look up kdlnx720 if you do not believe me. I am fully aware this is not an ideal connection scenario. I simply asked the best way to make the best of it knowing that my tv will pass dolby digital from any and all sources not just the internal tuner
post #3929 of 4476
I will apologize for losing my cool, I will apologize for being snarky, but I will not apologize for defending my own tv. I understand that up until very recently what I described is in fact backwards wrong and the worst possible way to connect anything , but I just want you all to understand that that is not any longer the case with newer televisions. I will also apologize for my typos and I'm posting this from my phone ...

I know you don't want to here this but I can not make water flow up hill.

But what you are asking for is equally impossible. NO SETTING will change things.
