We have a Denon AVR-1312 receiver hooked up to our Sony LED HDTV. I have a PS3 hooked up to the receiver via hdmi cable. I have a dvd player hooked up to the receiver with audio cables and to the tv directly with a video cable. For the PS3 I am only getting sound through the TV speaker and not through the receiver speaker. But for the DVD I am only getting sound from the receiver speakers, not the TV speaker. I do have an audio optical cable hooked up from the TV to the receiver. If I am just watching TV I can get sound from both the TV speakers and the receiver speakers at the same time. I'd like to be able to do this with the PS3 and DVD player too, but can't seem to get both working. Any ideas? By the way, I only have two speakers hooked up.

Not sure why you'd want the TV speakers and the Denon receiver speakers on simultaneously. This may not be possible due to many variables, and if you do find some method, you're likely to have syncing issues.

Well we used to do that with our old tv and stereo system. If I can't have both going at the same time, okay. But why don't I have a choice of where the sound is coming out of--either TV speakers or receiver speakers?

I'm not entirely certain why you would not be getting sound out of the Denon speakers with a PS3 hooked up via HDMI.
As far as the DVD...the optical connection may provide sound for the receiver and TV speakers together. If not, you must split the audio signal coming from the DVD.
