I can type a big thing now, but the short version though...
I've got my TV and Surround all set up now, I've got working 5.1 from TV itself but when I use my PS3 it doesn't seem to work.
My PS3 is connected with HDMI to the TV for video and an optical cable for audio. I used this setup always (as I used to be downstairs on the TV with my PS3 at first, then put it upstairs with my PC setup) and the optical cable always worked.
Since I have my own setup now, for some reason the 'optical' setting won't help and won't do anything... I'm trying to use the HDMI instead but that only gives me audio on front speakers. Anybody who can help me out.. I'm not going to lie, really pissed off at this right now..
For those who wonder; I'm testing whether or not the surround with PS3 works with a copy of Star Wars 4 that I have on my NAS. It works in 5.1 on the PC and I tried the same file on TV and that works. So any ideas?
here's the solution;
PS3 -> TV = HDMI
TV -> Surround = Optical
Put up the settings in the menu of my PS3 and it's actually working. I'm not touching it at all now..

[FIXED] Surround Sound -- Help Needed...
It shouldn't be failing Keefy..
I used to sit downstairs at my parents' TV/Surround at first, also connected like this. Worked perfect. Had 5.1 audio and HD image.
I went upstairs to my room with my PS3 and attached it to my left monitor from my setup and to my 5.1 PC speakers and also worked fine.
I moved it to my new TV/Surround setup and now for some reason, I'm not getting any 5.1...

Well I did go through this yesterday with you, there's no need to use optical if you have your PS3 going to your TV and then to your speakers if you are using HDMI.
Apparently I do, because I tried the HDMI alone and that didn't work out.. It's working now though so I'm not touching $#@!! xD
EDIT: just found out that my previous post (42 mins ago) happened to be a mistake? I posted 'it's fixed!' but for some reason it made a double post with my previous one... Good job D:
IT'S FIXED! Optical from TV to Surround, HDMI between PS3 and TV and it's working
