HDMI cable vs non


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings.
I use this method to revert from HDMI 1080p to Composite 576p, without having to swap cables and change settings.

My hdmi cable only transfers sound and no video


it might be because your ps3 is set to display video output higher than the tv is capable of producing. This happened to me when i brought my ps3 home to play on my tv at home. i previously had it set at 1080i output, but my tv at my house was only capable of producing 720p so i got the same problem as you. You can cut the ps3 on, then hold down the on button until you hear a second beep. this will return your video setting to normal (480i) and you can see if you have picture then.

Upscale from 480p Signal via HDMI


ok the problem might not be with your receiver it is with your direct tv settings. Double check to make sure you go to the format and set it up to be fixed or 1080i whichever will give you the highest resolution. Check your manual for the direct tv receiver. If this is all correct for the DTV then you must go into the setup on the receiver and at hardware icon toward bottom check on that box, now goto the hdmi settings and make sure it is set to through. this will allow the best picture with no upscaling which will degregade picture for blu ray. so your direct tv will be only 1080i but very impressive. if you still want to upscale you can then you have to change the hdmi settings from before to upscale 1080p . I just hope that your dtv can output 1080i it will give a better picture than 480p even if both are upscaled to 1080p
Oh i forgot to ask if you are connected through hdmi to the tv. Hdmi is the only option for upscaling

Trouble getting HD picture


Are you guys setting your PS3 to 1080i or 1080p in the SETTINGS section? Just because you have an HDMI connection doesn't mean it automaticall switches it to max definition

Hdmi not working


You probably have to turn it on in the DVD menu/settings and set the correct resolution/output. I do believe these will upconvert to 1080P, a resolution your TV may not be able to display. Try 1080i or 720p, these are still HD resolutions. Also length of HDMI cable can be an issue, especially if over 6', while your Xbox may have a stronger signal.

Ps3 trouble


ok, i got it working... Ok...your problem is probably that when you're using it on the HDTV...you have the resolution set to an HD one (720p, 1080i, 1080P). A normal TV cannot display these. While it's connected to the HDTV,Before you connect it to your normal tv, you have to switch it back to 480i or 480p otherwise, your regular tv wont show a picture. So go to settings, display settings, and uncheck 720p, 1080i, 1080p. It will ask you if these are the settings you choose (and it's going to look funny on your HDTV) Accept the settings and turn it off. When you connect it to your Regular TV, you should now see a picture. Hope this helps!

This TV won't support 1080!


Low or poor signal from the cable company. Try another signal source such as a DVD play.
