Sound through your surround sound system
Like me I had problems putting sound through my surround sound system. I now use an HDMI cable for the picture through my TV. I also use an AV cable connected from the PS3 directly to the surrond sound unit. This allows me to have 1080p picture (from HDMI) going from PS3 to TV, the AV cable allows me to have sound going from PS3 to surround sound unit. You must change the sound output to AV from the PS3 sound settings.
