As the title states, I'm seeking help with this. I just purchased a Sony sound bar SA40SE1, it isn't fancy, but it will suffice for now, and does sound better than my tv speakers.
Here is my hardware:
TV-42" Panasonic Viera Plasma (720p)
Console- Playstation 3
Cable Box- Charter
Sound Bar - Sony SA40SE1
- My PS3 is connected to my TV via RCA into the "Video 2" ports.
- My Cable Box is connected to my TV via HDMI
- My Sound Bar is connected to my cable box, via two RCA's on the back of the cable box, those go into an adapter and single plug in the soundbar. The only other plug on the back of the sound bar is for the power cable.
When watching TV, the input mode is set to "HDMI", and the sound bar is just fine, but when I turn on my PS3, and swap over to the "Video 2" input mode on my TV the audio from the cable tv is still playing out of the sound bar. I can hear the audio from the PS3 come out of my TV though. What do I need to do to get the PS3 sound to come out of my sound bar? Would running an Optical cable from the PS3 to the Cable Box solve this issue?
I'm sure the answer might be obvious, but I'm very green when it comes to A/V stuff.
Here is a picture of the back of my TV. The red/white RCA's were there when I was first trying to set it up, and then realized I had to put them into the cable box.
