Hi all,

so I've got a PS3 connected to my samsung 46" smart TV, i also have a 5.1 sony surround system, and i can't get the PS3 sound to play through the surround system, i select the TV input to hdmi2 (ps3) and image shows up fine, and when i select the surround system input to TV, it plays the sound from the television input not the HDMI input?? so i have the image of the ps3 and the sound from whatever is on the telly?! what am i doing wrong? i can't use optical audio as the amp hasn't got an optical port in it. any suggestions?

thanks in anticipation!! :)

The TV may not be able to pass surround sound from the PS3. Can you not plug the PS3 into the surround system directly?
