You'll have to adjust in the setting back and forth as you want.

Yes in the settings menu, very easy to do that

Do you have a HDMI cable from your PS3 to your TV?
If you do then you can just unplug the Optical cable from the PS3 and you have TV coming from the TV instantly, vice versa for instantly having home cinema sound too

I don't think so, most people complain that it's too big now due to the 3.00 Firmware update
You really can't see it well?

Yeah, but at least it's very quick to change between the both

what size is the new TV? 32" may be why it's showing small. I heard that there may be a text size setting coming soon so i wouldn't give up hope

Well, there's one way to do this.

Have HDMI to TV and set sound on PS3 to HDMI... on your TV use either optical out or sound output to the home theater system. Then you just either have the home theater ON or OFF... the only difference will be turning the TV sound down or muted when you want to get sound to HT.

Yeah, uoi could use dual output... but your original question was how to do it so that you DON'T have to change settings on the PS3 every time.. hence the answer I gave you.
