Enable Discreet Audio Through HDMI in Playstation 3

This is a retraction to a story I wrote yesterday about the PlayStation 3 not supporting discreet 5.1 surround sound through HDMI. I have since deleted the story. After browsing more articles on the issue, I finally found one comment where someone offered a solution to the problem and if you’re having the same issue, here is the solution. Within the Playstation3, there are two audio settings: One is “audio settings” under settings which, in order to use HDMI, you must select “HDMI” as your output and then “auto” on the next screen. Then save your options. Once that is done, you want to go to BR/DVD Setting and find the audio options for this heading. You want to make sure the audio for HDMI is set to “Bitstream” and not “Linear.” Save your settings and you will be good to go.

Sorry again about the previous story and accusing Sony of the issue.

    I just bought a play station 3 and it appears that when using the hdmi connection the audio connection on the composite side does not work. What I want to do is use the HDMI in 1080I and use the audio out connections on the composite side directly into my Stereo. HELP????LOL

    Well I like to browse around when i’m not so busy at work. So are you currently using any AutoDesk products? If so what do you use?
