Alright, I do have to apologize for starting another thread. I did search through the old ones, but I couldn't find the topic that I remember being discussed before. I recall us discussing how some TV's don't accept HDMI audio from the PS3 and only support video. Well I have one of those TV's because anytime I turn on surround sound nothing happens for sound out of my theater speakers. Originally I had HDMI to the TV and optical from my TV to my reciever. But his didn't work. After moving and rehooking everything up this weekend I tried HDMI to the TV and Optical to the reciever from my PS3. But again still no sound. HDMI still works for 2.1 sound to the TV, but the 5.1 to the reciever does nothing. I tried switching the PS3 settings over to optical, but the only thing that does is take away my 2.1 from my TV since it's not using the HDMI anymore.. So what am I doing wrong? I've also now considered getting a new reciever that has HDMI inputs, but I want one that will upconvert component to HDMI as I will be hooking up my Wii via Component. Any recommedations on this type of reciever?
