I just figured it out last night - if you have used your playstation on an hd tv previously, it is set at the highest resolution possible - 1080p. You need to take it back to that tv, and go to display settings on your tv. If you select HDMI as they type of connection you'd like to make, it asks you what resolution your tv supports. In your tv instruction guide, it should give you this information. Check mark all of the resolutions your tv supports, making sure not to confuse 1080i and 1080p. After doing this you can take it back to your other television and it should work.

My problem is getting a "This signal is not supported message" on an HDMI input into a Pioneer PDPR05G media receiver.


No need to understand - just read the message, It clearly states that the unit will not accept that particular signal because its electronics are not configured to deal with it. And that is it - end of story.

Basically, you cannot force a square peg into a round hole.

If you have connected the TV to the computer with a VGA cable, what resolution was your previous monitor using? You may need to change the resolution or refresh rate with your regular monitor attached. This TV has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 .

If you are connected via one of the HDMI ports, check the specifications for your TV. Then try using the VGA output. Not all TVs support a computer signal over HDMI. Unfortunately, I can't find the LC320ss8 at the Sylvania Support site: http://www.sylvaniaconsumerelectronics.com/ . If the model number has an error, click on Downloads and enter the correct model number.

I hope this helps.

You need to lower your PS3 video resolution, Google the web on how to change the PS3 video resolution.

I'm thinking the Comcast DVR box maybe putting out weird HDMI signals and the TV can't translate it. I would call the Comcast people on this one.
In the meantime, I would try finding another source the uses a HDMI cable to rule out the TV as the problem. Basically, testing the TV to see if the problem still happens when you use something else than the Comcast box. Try a Blueray player, Playstation 3, or Xbox. Just something that uses a HDMI cable.

PS3 dont work


Go through setup on your PS3 with a normal AV cable and un-check the higher resolution boxes (1080p and down) one at a time, unless you know specifically what resolutions your television supports. After un-checking, plug in the HDMI cable and see if it fixes it. Basically, you need to set the PS3 to a supported format for your television.
