px70 sound help

Hello... need to basic set up advice

thanks to this forum I have just got rid of my old CRT dinosaur and got a new px70. Amazing how much things have moved on in 5 years!

However, I can't work out how to play sound through my Denon500SD when watching normal TV or playing games.

I have connected the Denon via component and it works fine when watching DVDs but when watching normal TV or playing ps3 using hdmi, how do i get it to use the denon's speakers not the TV's own speakers?

Help appreciated!

with normal tv you will need to connect a normal stereo rca cable from your audio out jacks on the back of the tv to a relevant audio in on your denon.

For ps3 you need to use an optical cable from the ps3 into the denon! there is no way of passing the sound in digital form from the tv to the denon.
