PS3 Video but no sound

Hello all. I have been using dvblink to record DVB-T/T2 freeview signals via a tvbutler and two PCTV 292e tuner sticks. My Nas is an ageing Synlogy DS411+11 which has so far proven to be rock solid. I normally view the recordings using an HTPC running Kodi. However, I was laying around with the kids' PS3 today and saw that it was showing the DVBlogic TVserver under the DLNA devices. When I tried to play any of the recordings I got video but no sound. Should this be the case? Is there an easy fix? Any help appreciated. TIA

Have you tried to watch the HD channels?
It could be that it is some kind of codec issue.

Good point, thanks. I've just checked again and it seems that SD recordings play ok, (albeit without subtitles) but HD recordings play the video without sound. Anyone else able to view UK HD recordings properly using the PS3?

Seems the HD channels have an AC3 audio track, and you need a codecs for those.
