This week I was given a Sony DAV S300 Surround Sound System for Free from my girlfriends parents and i'm trying to figure out how to connect my PS3 to the Surround System to get 5.1 Sound. I'm getting a new HDTV Soon so my PS3 will be connected via HDMI. The Sony DAV S300 isnt a new sound system and is older but great on sound. can someone point me in the right direction as I dont have a clue about what I need to connect it up together to get 5.1 Surround Sound out of it lol, Simular to Naeem's Problem! haha Not coping you honestly!

unless theres something on the right, i don't think you have an optical input.

you should be able to get sound out of it by plugging your ps3 into your tele, then your tele into your dvd player - dont think it will be surround sound but left and right put through all the speakers.
ideally you need a dvd player or sub woofer type thing with a optical input.

There doesn't seem to be an Optical input in this system and so you could connect your PS3 with this system using a Normal AV cable :thumbsup:

But this player seems to have a Dolby decoder inbuilt - Wouldn't be True HD however you can get Dolby sound ie 5.1

Marky dont look like theere an optical output as on mins says say digistal output and takes like a pin like connection and got told it will work! Its been suggested to connect is via AV cable which I never knew you could as thats how I connected another DVD player to it and thses are dirt cheap!

ah okies :( so It doesnt have an optical input?, Not much point of plugging it into my new TV and not getting 5.1 sound, it would just be loud and not surround sound, so my options are to look for a new DVD player with an optical input that'll accept my speakers as seen in the pictures. i have a Huge Sub Woofer but it's only got the connectors in the back to connect it to the DVD player and no optical input either...

av sound wont be 5.1 though :(

Looks great, Sadly money will be going to a new TV so would have been an extra if my PS3 could connect to this Surround System :( ah well it was free so i';m chuffed with it!

Can you take an image of the whole of the rear and see if a socket exists that looks like this.

Sometimes called Toslink or S/Pdif the one on the right is optical and is the socket on a PS3.

Uses a cable like this.

Did a Dav S300 + optical search AVforums and came across a few old discussions that suggest it does not have optical.

just hook it up with the phono R+L inputs that's the best your going to get im afraid.
