I have a problem with my surround sound system and wondered if anybody had any suggestions on how to fix it. I have connected my ps3 to my surround sound system using an optical cable but I still only get sound from the front left and right speakers. I have the bd audio output format optical digital set to bitstream direct and the audio output to optical cable 5.1. Can anybody shed some light on how to fix this?

Try this see if it works, in BD audio output set it to bitstream mix.
And then go down to sound settings/ audio output settings/optical digital/ tick dolby digital 5.1 ch & don't
tick any other boxes, there will be two boxes ticked linear PCM 2 Ch 44.1 khz & 48 khz, these will be greyed
out. Save those settings thats what my settings are. See if that works.
Let us know how you get on

Thanks mate works perfectly it must have been because i had it set to bitstream direct instead of mixed.
Thanks a lot for you help and quick reply now i can annoy my gf by making our front room sound like a war zone.
best wait until she has one of those tupperware or candle parties - much more effective
edit: the spell check suggested "gf" as gaff

You need to connect the sound bar to the audio OUT from the TV not the PS3 audio out.
PS3 to TV
TV permanent audio out connection to Sound bar/Amps.
If the sound bar only has 1 input then you can only connect it to the TV.
If it has a secondary input then you can connect that to PS3 and select that input to hear PS3 audio only while TV is off.. (aka music only not video)
Very few HDTVs have HDMI audio out. normaly Optical or Phono/RCA.
YouTube PS3 companion app HD video, NA 1.04/EU 1.00 720p HD Video
( Remote access controll usage, No DS3 used... )
