Help choosing the correct PS3 audio settings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to figure out what would be the proper settings for getting the best audio from my PS3.  This would be for games mainly, as Blu-Rays I can pick what audio it outputs from disc to disc.  This is for both stereo speakers, and my headphones.

 

So the options are:

 

1. Set to HDMI to automatic, which usually outputs 5.1 PCM from PS3, and then set the AV receiver to output in Stereo

 

2. Set to HDMI to automatic, which usually outputs 5.1 PCM from PS3, and then set the AV receiver to output in Direct (I don't think this is a good choice).

 

3. Set HDMI to only out 2 Channel PCM from PS3, and set the AV receiver to Direct.

 

The AV receiver is an Onkyo TX-SR309 if that helps.

 

Which would give me the best result (not losing any sounds, etc.)?

 

Thanks!

Set the PS3's HDMI output to automatic.

This is what I've been doing, and it seemed to have been working fine. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't losing anything.

Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure that automatic is the best option, but at least it give the PS3 a chance to try to figure out what is best.
