If its been 3 days or more, please post Here, with a link to your original topic.
If it hasn’t been three days, try to remain calm, and remember we are all volunteers here, and we do have our own personal lives and responsibilities. There are hundreds of other uses also waiting for help as well
second...your post is relatively incomprehensible.... what is your concern? getting surround sound out of the ps3 into the TV? or getting HD video out of the ps3?
if it's the sound....then you would want to go directly from the PS3 to whatever sound system you're using to accomplish surround sound...if your TV is doing the surround on it's own (didn't check the tv specs to see if it's capable of doing that)...then you should just need to connect the ps3 to the TV (the HDMI cable will bring all the audio in so no need for an extra cable)....if however you've got a different receiver in your entertainment center that does the surround sound...then you'll need to go from the PS3 to the receiver to get surround sound..
of course...if you're not actually set up for 5.1 (i.e. have all the speakers etc)...then it doesn't matter one way or the other

looking at the manual for the AV system (which is virtually useless by the way...that manual is garbage)...i don't see anything about an optical audio input...there's an optical video input....but it doesn't say if it's got audio (the way it's labeled anyway)...
when you watch TV...does it play the audio from the TV through the surround speakers correctly?
do you have the TV hooked up the way the manual suggests? like cables going from your cable box/satellite/whatever into the AV thing...then from there...just taking the video to the TV?
JUST based on the drawings and such from the manual...i'm not seeing much of a way to get your ps3 to actually send sound to the contraption through either DIM OR through fiber optic cable.....unless I'm completely wrong and the optical port on the back of the AV contraption is audio (again crappy documentation)...if you hook the PS3 to the TV through HDMI...then route the audio from the TV to the receiver...i think it's going to go to 2.1 surround by nature of it having to go through RCA audio cables there (right and left channel)...again...if I'm completely wrong about that optical port...then you could very easily connect the HDMI cable to the TV for the video portion...then connect the fiber between the ps3 and the av system directly...the fiber connection should be more than capable of delivering the full signal in 5.1 from the ps3...considering that's the reason they started using fiber in av equipment
