Looking at the manual for the Philips HTS3357, it appears you could either use the 2 channel Left / Right audio inputs (2 channel sound), or the digital coax input (multi channel sound).




If the PS3 only has an optical out as opposed to Coax, there are converters you can get to go from optical to Coax. Then you need both an optical and coax cable to connect your PS3 to the Philips.

Welcome

1) Buy a Digital Optical Cable - Aprox £5 - £10

2) Buy a Digital Co-axial Cable - Approx £10 - £20

3) Buy a Digital Audio Convertor - see here http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=29293&criteria=audio converter&doy=7m3 approx £13

4) Change the audio settings on your PS3 to "optical"

5) Connect the optical cable to the PS and convertor

6) Connect the Co-axial cable to the convertor and your Amp

Job done

You could use the Left / Right (Red / White connections) but do not as, these connections will not provide 5.1 sound.

Nope - currently yu are sending audio and video to the TV via the HDMI.

Once you change the audio output settings of the PS3 to optical, you will still be sending the video signal to the TV via the HDMI, it is only the sound which will then be going to your amp
