Ok, so I bought the Bose Cinemate 1 SR, I hooked it up but I get no sound when playing the PS3, I have to be missing something. Here is my setup:
1. I have Verizon Fios hooked up to my TV via an HDMI cable
2. PS3 is hooked up to my TV via an HDMI(on a different channel of course)
3. An optical audio cable is hooked from the back of the TV to the Bose Cinemate 1 SR
When I'm watching Fios, the audio sounds great through the Bose Cinemate 1 SR. When I switch channels to watch PS3, the video is fine, but I'm not getting any Audio coming through the Bose Cinemate 1 SR. Ive changed the Audio Settings on the PS3 to HDMI, but I still get nothing. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Some TVs will not output sound to if the audio is coming from a source that is not connected to HDMI port 1. Which is probably why you can get sound using your cable box but not your PS3.
From the limited time looking at your soundbar online, you'll need to use an optical cable from the PS3 to the soundbar and setup the PS3's sound settings output to optical so you can get sound from it.
