I have a samsung 46" 65F LCD TV. I have HDMI to the TV and toslink out from the TV. I figure the PS3 will send at least 5.1 to the TV and I'll get it from the optical out into my receiver. Is that right?
I'm happy with 5.1 DTS. I can't imagine anything sounding much better to my rather unsophisticated ears.
I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on the PS3. I sure miss my HD-DVD but at least the war ended before my Best Buy return window closed. I only own Happy Feet. The detail on thos sea lions was awesome.
I think a lot of people are in my situation. HDTV is great but the cable stuff is a little weak. Only a high def player really shows off the clarity of HD.
