    Is there a way to set the PS3 so I can use optical sound as an option?

    I have it set through my home cinema but sometimes I want it JUST to come through TV and not home cinema....or will i have to change settings everytime?



    also anyway to increase font size? its tiny

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

    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

    innit lol

    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.

    Or just use dual output

    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.
