    I got the same amp and i thought hdmi from my ps3 to the amp would be sufficient but i get no sound :eek:

    so now i use hdmi to amp and a seperate optical cable for sound

    on a side note when i play blu ray discs on the amp menu it displays pcm is that the best setting for sound or should it be bitstream :confused:

    The Optical cable doesnt carry as much bandwidth as HDMI so probaley best to use HDMI.

    Also, HDMI is the only way to get HD audio if that helps.

    okay, the sony HT-SS1100 it has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output, so will this work, plug my ps3 via hdmi into the sony HT-SS1100 and than have another hdmi cable running out of the sony HT-SS1100 into my hdtv, or won't the receiver handle visual input?

    I tried doing this but found i got picture but no audio. So i had to spend more cash on a seperate optical cable from ps3 to htss1100, then it works fine.

    Not sure but I think u need a tru hd capable amp for hdmi to carry audio and picture from the ps3 to the amp.
