Ok, I have a Surround sound receiver that does NOT have an HDMI input, yet it has an optical audio port. So what I did is connect my PS3 via HDMI to my TV, and ran an Optical cable from my PS3 to my receiver. Yet, the PS3 does not play surround sound. I've already enabled Bitstream under settings and chose Optical as the audio source. There is absolutely no sound coming from my 5 speakers when using this method. Anyone can help?
EDIT: Never mind. The problem is that my surround sound receiver only has an optical OUTPUT NOT INPUT. Oh well...I'll just return it and get another one =)
