How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to commect to my PS3 to an LG LCD tv which supports 1080P (Full HD). but as the game starts and when i check the TV it says 720P although the game and the TV both supports full HD. Do i need...


Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!

My volumn doesn't work when using the HDMI cable


Your TV and the cable box may not be compatible via HDMI or the digital audio format of the cable box is not set to PCM (contact your cable provider for information on how to change this on your cable box... too many models to speculate). The easiest solution is to use the component connections on the box and the TV (5 wire - Green, Blue, Red, White, Red). This will give you HD and eliminate to question of compatibility. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

No sound from ps3 to home cinema via an optical cable


If you have not run the set up you will need to, however I'm guessing you did because you would have had to make some changes to the settings to get the image to come up on the screen but without being physically at your location I can just guess.

In order to view your PS3 in full 1080p you need the HDMI cable which you already have. If you have not gone into your video settings then you are not viewing via the HDMI cable and you will need to to get things working right.
In order to view via the HDMI cable you would have had to had both the standard PS3 interface cable that comes in the box (the one that goes from the PS3 to your tv with the composite video (yellow) and the left and right audio (red and white) and the HDMI cable pluged into your PS3 and your tv at the same time. then you turn on the PS3 making sure your TV was set to whatever imput the composite and left/right audio is pluged into (typically VIDEO 1,2,3 ect.) and enter the menu, go to the settings and then down to your display settings and change it to HDMI, the image should then leave the screen (because it switched to HDMI) you will need to have your TV remote handy for this because you will need to switch sources on your tv to HDMI 1,2,3 ect, which ever one you have it pluged into. When you have switched to the right HDMI imput there should be an on the screen that is counting down and asking you if you want to accept the changes. Select yes and Move on through the settings selecting the maximum resolution your tv is capeable of
720, 1080i, 1080p) which can be found on the box the tv came in or somewhere on the tv or manual. While running this settings change it should ask you the audio source you are using make sure you select Digital Optical and that it is pluged in to you PS3 and your reciever. Once this is all done you can remeove the standard PS3 hook up that came with the box and put it away you wont need it any more, unless you move the PS3 around and the tv you move it to does not have HDMI in which case you will have to change the settings before you move it back to the standard cable or you will not be able to see it displayed on the tv sceen you move to and it will be impossible to run the settings.

If you have already done that and just want to verify that your source for audio originating from the PS3 is digital optical you can check that in the same settings menu under audio settings. Then make sure the reciver is on and set to whatever imput you have the cable pluged into and you should be good to go.

If all that I have described has been done already then the audio cable could be bad or the problem lies internaly with the PS3 or the reciever.
Good Luck hope this helps
