PS4 audio issue

6 Replies 479 Views Created 18-11-2013
I am running my ps4 video and audio straight to my sony bravia tv through a single hdmi cable. It seems like the system think it is hooked up to surround sound, making certain sounds almost impossible to hear (enemy gunfire in cod ghosts).

On ps3 I could manually set the audio to output to 2 channels, but it's not an option (that i can find ) on ps4. Is there a fix for this? Or am I stuck with horrible audio unless using my headset?

Re: PS4 audio issue

Have you tried altering the audio output settings on your TV? There may be something that's suppressing certain aspects maybe?

Re: PS4 audio issue

I went in and tried every setting paired with every ps4 setting all with similar results. I have a sony bravia kdl47w802a which has their 'a force' 2 speaker surroubd and It seems like the ps4 things it's a 5 speaker system.

I had the same issue with ps3 but was able to fix it by selecting 2 channel audio.. But ps4 doesn't seem to have this setting, only the auto detection

I only noticed same problem when watching bluray & was looking for just TV set up like ps3! Must be missing something here but I did look through various options!

Re: PS4 audio issue

Only problem with audio i have is even though my PS4 is set to output through optical, it still outputs through HDMI also so i get it through my tv aswell rather than just surround
