For an HDMI connection with your Xbox 360, try these settings:
1) Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
2) Go to Settings and select System.
3) Select Console Settings, and then select Audio.
4) Select Digital Output, and then select Digital StereoMy Elgato Game Capture HD doesn
you need to select High definition output on the PS3. Connect it via hdmi and via standard lead switch the tv to standard so you can see the picture then select high definition output. Switch over to hdmi and you should see a picture
Are you connecting it to a new SD tv after having been connected to an HD set? You can force the system to reset the video resolution settings by pressing and holding the On/Off button after the system has already turned on. I believe it is ~5-10sec. You will hear another beep after the initial startup beep. This will reset video setting to default and go through the resolution setup wizard again.
However, it is also possible that you are trying to connect a component cable to a composite tv. They are VERY different signals even though the cables fit interchangeably. If you use the Green component cable for video on a composite tv you will only see a grayscale image of the picture. This is most likely your issue. If this is the case you will need to buy a composite cable for the PS3 (the PS2 one is the exact same as the PS3 one.)
FYI Component cable has Red, Green, & Blue cables. Composite has Yellow (Video), White (Left Audio), Red (Right Audio). Both are normal RCA type plugs and will fit in each others plugs, but the signals are VERY different.
easy breezy fix, you have to force the ps3 to acknowledge that tv is not hdmi, it is just hd. press and hold power button for 5 seconds on ps3 until you hear 2nd beep and let go. settings will come up for ps3, switch to hd. done
how was it connected at this other residence? was it via HDMI cable by any chance? if so try this, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. (until you hear the second beep) this causes the PS3 to reset the display properties back to 480i..follow the onscreen instructions to set it back up to 1080i
ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
