A component cable plugs into a total of 5 component slots on the back of an HDTV and is color coded, an HDMI cable has a single plug. Both of these can be bought at a gaming store, or even the nearest Walmart
Try to find the right input ot the cable that your using. If your using HDMi cable then use the HDMI input of your tv, If your using Component Cable look for component input use the original remote of your tv and look for the right input.
It sounds to me like there is a noteable delay due to a combination of things: your Bluetooth wireless controler (primary reason), and the cable connection from your PS3 to your TV. Now, to determine what the problem is specifically, you'll need to check a few things:
1. Make sure your PS3 is updated to the latest software
2. Check to make sure your cable connections from your PS3 to your TV are firmly in place. I personally have noticed that I got delayed reactions when my HDMI cable was not firmly secured to my HD TV. Weird, but as soon as I unplugged and re-plugged in the cable at both the TV end and the PS3 end, it cleared things up for me. If that does NOT work (btw, this can also be the case if you use a composite or component set up too).
3. Check to make sure that your PS3 controller is fully charged. Controllers that are partially charged occasionally do demonstrate really weird results, like the delay you're talking about. So, make sure that your PS3 controller is fully charged.
4. If the controller is fully charged AND your PS3 to TV cable is plugged in properly, then try to plug the USB cable to connect your PS3 controller to your PS3. Sometimes, for reasons I don't know about yet, this could solve the delay problem.
It sounds as though the controller ought to first be hooked to the PS3 via the cable(usb cable) that comes with the system. The system will automatically register it, and will, from then on, recognize it and work without hassle.
try your hdmi cables on his tv if you can, if his cables do not work on your tv or his, try Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after
the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the
TV's native resolution for all settings.
