make sure the sound outputs on the ps3 are all correct

thanks geo ... but can you break it down into english for a non understanding newbie :(

are you saying i dont need an optical as sound should appear through the HDMI connection ?

if i am right in understanding the amp, it will decode the HDMI sound information which you require, so your output from the amp will display the PS picture.

no need for optical, better sound quality from HDMI anyway!!
