Panasonic SC-PT460 & PS3 Audio Issues


Standard Member
I have my Playstation 3 connected to my Goodmans GTVl26W17HDF Television via HDMI cable.

I have also connected my Panasonic SC-PT460 Home Cinema System to my Playstation 3 via a Digital Optical Cable.

When I select the audio output settings on the PS3 and select 'Digital Out (Optical)' from the menu and after selecting Dolby Digital my screen turns black and flickers for about 3 seconds and makes a crackle sound.

Then everytime i touch a button move the L3 pad it crackles and flickers again until I change the audio out back to HDMI

Can anyone offer any help?

more than likely down to the panasonic switching audio(from DD to pcm for the noises on the xmb), and your tv not being too good on handling that, i would assume.
can you try the setup on a different tv, as the way i see it, goodmans arent really supported for firmware updates, and i think the problem lies with the tv,and its inputs/ability to accept changes.
