Settings on harmon kardon avr 347

1633 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  M Code
I have a harmon kardon avr 347 with 5.1 surround using klipsch speakers. I am hooking up my PS3 and HD TV, both through optical cable. I was wondering what settings I should have for the surround. Like dolby digital or something like that. But when ever I put on dolby digital it only comes out the two side speakers or just the center. The speakers are definitaly hooked up right because on other settings they work. I am not that up to date on the sound settings so if any one can help me I would appreciate it. Also would anyone suggest optical or HDMI for audio?

Assuming your PS3 has the latest firmware updates, it should be connected by HDMI. Basic surround decoding is done inside the PS3 and then the PS3 will output a multi-channel PCM to the 247 via HDMI. The audio DSP within the 247 automatically will auto-detect and configure itself to play back the appropriate DSP mode.

Just my $0.02...
