we recently bought a sony bravia ex4/32 hdtv and we have a sony HT-DDW 1510w home theatre system. we also have sky hdmi and are going to get a ps3.

we have connected the sky hdmi to the reciever of the HTS and then the tv to the HTS both through hdmi cables.

but we cant figure out how we are meant to get audio through the HTS speakers as at the moment the audio is coming from the tv.

do we need to run another cable from the tv to the HTS or should it all just go through the one hdmi cable.

it feels like we have tried all the settings on both the tv and the HTS!

HELP!! thanks

If it's the KDL32EX400, then it has "Digital optical jack (Two channel linear PCM, Dolby Digital)". That means you can connect an SPDIF optical cable from TV to home theatre.

You can use an optical cable from the tv if you are using the built in freeview.
But you state you have sky so just go from the sky decoder to the home theatre via optical as you shouldn't be using freeview when you have sky HDi.

ps. The home theatre you quote I think is only a HDMI switch and can't process the sound hence you need the Optical cable, for your PS3 as well. Downer, salesperson should have sorted you out properly.
Hate it when you get home and you can't set things up right!

Try enabling the HDMI control function from HDMI setup.
(home->setup->hdmi setup->hdmi device list-enable on my kdl32v5500)

you need to connect the ps3 to HTS via an additional optical cable. cross your fingers the HTS has an optical input and not just co-axials ...
