    How many HDMI inputs do you have on the receiver?

    As far as I'm aware, you can go straight from the PS3 > Home Theater > TV using HDMI cables? Having 1 HDMI output would be the one that goes to your TV.

    Otherwise, you can use an optical audio cable to the Home Theater.

    yeah, was messing around with it and i realize if i just get two hdmi cables and plug one from the ps3 to the tv and one from the reciever to the tv. I would just have to change the input on the tv depending on what i want to watch or do. Only problem i have is i will have to switch the optical audio cable from the tv to the ps3 everytime i switch between the two :/ bc there is only one input on the tv and 1 output on the ps3 for the optical cable. Unless u know of any other way?

    Any chance you can take a photo of the back of the receiver and TV so I can see the connections? You might be able to connect it differently depending on the layout. :)
