Didn't I already do that?
To confirm. Mine is connected to the TV via HDMI. I have Audi connected via the optical out to my Surround receiver and it works perfectly.
Once you set the Audio to output through the optical, there is no Audio from the TV. It has to go through an AV receiver.
Besides you Chancer, I was wondering if anyone else uses hdmi and fiber optic. The setup my buddy is using is, he is running hdmi(for video) to a 40" Sharp lcd and fiber optic(for audio) to a Yamaha HTR-6060. We cannot get audio from the ps3 to the receiver while using the fiber optic output from the ps3. We are getting the fiber optic signal through the cable, which can be verified by the laser light, but it acts like it's not carrying any information. So, like I said earlier, I disconnected the hdmi and fiber optic from the ps3 and connected it to the tv and receiver respectably, and it works perfectly fine. Is this a ps3 issue.
