OK, I've asked this before in the past about twice, but I just want to make sure I have the best sound I could. I've had the same (great) home theater system for about two years now, just a few months back though I got an optical cable to use instead of the set up I had before which wasn't preferable. My question is, should I set it up differently from how I do it on 360, or is it just fine as it is? If I were to do it differently, I would have to make the optical cable go from the receiver to the PS3 rather than the usual receiver to TV like I do the 360.
I use an HDMI cable for both the 360 and PS3, and when I want to use either system, all I have to do is change the HDMI from one to the other since the TV I use only has one HDMI input. So what should I do, make it a little harder and put slightly more time into switching it, or just keep it as is? If you don't understand what I'm asking, please tell me so I can explain. I'm pretty great with electronics, but I'm no professional know it all, so if anyone that knows the very best way to use the surround sound, please help. Thanks in advance.
By the way, a few complaints I guess you can say. When I would set it up so the optical cable goes from receiver to PS3, I won't get any sound out of the TV (which I consider wrong, though I may be wrong.), And when I have it set up that way (as well as the way I have it now) when I go to the sound settings on the PS3, it doesn't seem to acknowledge my home theater specs, though I may be wrong on that. I just kind of feel like the PS3 makes me remember what my home theaters specs are, though again, I may be wrong. Alright, done.
