PS3 Connection Problems (NO SOUND!)

  hannybo 09:45 14 Feb 2008

I have an LG tv and a PS3. The PS3 is a US Console and my tv has no HDMI port so I have hooked it up using an HDMI / DVI-D converter lead. I have a picture and I have even managed to get the console online to update the software so it accepts PS2 games. However, there is no sound.
I think I need an optical audio cable??
Please can someone help me??? This is urgent as my daughter is having a karaoke birthday party on Saturday and needs to have sound from Singstar.....

DVI-D is just for the digital video click here you will not get sound this way. I don't have a PS3 so can not advice on this but looking through the instruct on the manufacturers web site show different ways on connecting the PS3 to your TV.

most pieces of equipment come with phono audio output ie red and white, is there such a thing on this machine?

I have a Scart cable that links from the TV to the PS3 and also has the red and white cables on it - I tried plugging this into the television but there was still no sound????
Is this the wrong cable?

right then the audio leads must be connected wrong ( red/white )

How do you mean? Sorry if I'm missing something (not overly technical) but am I supposed to be connected them somewhere other than into the TV?

no, what make of tv is in use?

It's an LG tv (not sure off the top of my head which model but is about a year old)
