I bought a Play Station 3 which works fine plugged into the jacks in front of the tv (low res), but after plugging in the PS3 to the HDMI jack in the rear of the tv I have no idea how to select that HDMI input to be able to play games and/or movies. None of the "Input" modes or "Composite" modes seem to work.

Re: Installing PS3 with HDMI
Hello! If nothing worked for you, there are 2 options: 1. give up on 720p settings and use 480i on PS3. Your set is not 1080p, anyway. Only those, equipped with HDMI inputs are. 2. If your set is working well with cable box's component connections, the TV is OK. Have you tried that? If not, there is a problem with your TV's main board surface mount electrolytic capacitors. I've seen them getting near or completely empty. also, there are some capacitors in a sweep module, what could add up to this problem. If your set has hesitation to turn on after being unplugged off the power strip, or has too large picture size on any mode. In this case, I'd call for repair services. the age of your set suggest that, if it hasn't been repaired lately. There is no way for you fix it, unless you have technician's skills and adequate diagnostic and soldering equipment. Good luck, Alex.

plug the ps in with power cable only no hdmi. When turning on Hold down the power button until you hear a second set of beeps you have now reset the video settings. Turn the console off and plug in your hdmi and switch back on it should now work.
The HDMI cable on your laptop is most likely an output. If the computer does not say installing drivers directly after plugging your PS3 into the computer than it is most likely an output. Try using the HDMI from your laptop to your TV to confirm this. If the computer does not say installing device drivers right when you plug your PS3 into it that means it is not recognizing it, most likely because that port is for output.
When you attach your Play Station 3 to an HD TV through an HDMI port,
the Play Station 3 will ask you if you wish to switch to HD Mode.
if you decide to move it to another TV that is not HD compatible, you
will get no picture because the Play Station 3 is “stuck” in HD (HDMI)
Follow these steps to resolve your problem:
off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button
on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power
switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.
Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not
HDTV) with the standard video cables.
3. Press and hold the power
button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This
should reset the video settings.
4. Wait a few seconds, and the
Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.
If this does not resolve
the problem, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the PS3 so it only
shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it
goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the
Play Station 3 off and then back on.
2. Make sure your Play
Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard
3. Press and hold the power button on the front
until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should
reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.
it! You can play your Play Station 3 again!
First off, if you want to use the hdmi remove the supplied composite cable from the back of the ps3. You don't need both plugged in at the same time, and I'm not sure with the ps3 but some video devices will not enable both at once.
Have your tv selected for whatever hdmi input you have it plugged into. They should be labeled where you plug them in.
With the unit in standby, switch off and red light in front, hold the power button by the disc tray for 3-5 second. You will hear it beep, after the initial turn on beep, then you should see a display set up screen.
If you switch back to the composite, you will have to do this over again.
When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.
Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.
Have both the AV cables and hdmi cables hooked up from the tv to the
ps3. On the TV Menu goto the av station which is different from the
HDMi station...From the ps3 menu screen gotot settings then to video
and audio and select hdmi then back to the tv menu and select the hdmi
station and the ps3 main menu should be seen and you are all set
Sorry to here about your problem. I have a 65HM167 Toshiba tv which is the same as your model, and I have my PS3 connected HDMI with no problems. Try using a different brand HDMI cable and a different HDMI input on the tv if you have not already done so. Hope this does it for you, good luck.
If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.
If i was you i would do the following:
1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.
That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.
However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.
