No sound in games through Optical, please help.

Hi all,
I've been happily using my ps3 for a while now feeding the sound through my amp using optical. I turned it on today and although the sound comes through on the XMB as soon as I start a game I get no sound.

I've changed it to HDMI and I get sound through my tv.

Has anyone come across this? I'm really hoping it can be fixed because I doubt there are any 60gigs left at Virgin :(

Thanks for any help

phoned zavvi where I bought it from and they can exchange it but only for a 40gb unit :( I'll get 50quid back so that's another game but I'm a bit gutted :(

Can anyone recommend any games I can get to take the edge off losing the 60gigs abilities? I've got my saves backed up on a Sony memory card so god knows how I'll get them back on the 40gig.

I've got COD4, Assassins, Heavenly Sword, SingStar and PES already. Taking back Full Auto 2 so I should have about £100 to spend (at zavvi prices)

Thanks for any help

Why not phone sony and try and get a replacement if you want to keep a 60GB?

yeah, that and Unchartered are the two I'm thinking of. If they'll match their internet prices might get out with both of them!

Well. I've returned it and got my 40gig, because they let me return one of the games that I got in the bundle which I got full price for the deal I've now had is

40Gig PS3
Heavenly Sword
Black Hawk Down Bluray
Casino Royale Bluray
Unchartered: Drakes Fortune (on order)
Guitar Hero 3+Guitar (on order)

all for £350 so I'm pretty happy with that I suppose :)
