How to get regular TV channels?
Your HDTV should have a digital TV Tuner (ATSC) which may need an indoor antenna. Change your TV's input selector to TV or Antenna or Digital (probably one of those three) and scan for channels. If you don't get any channels, then you do need an antenna. Probably another $10.
Did you move your PS3 back to a regular tv set? If this is the case then you have to 'reset' your PS3 to play through the analog hook-ups.
This is easily redone by doing this
1, With the PS3 "OFF", Press and hold the power button, keep holding the button down till you hear 2 rapid beeps. IMMEDIATELY remove your finger from the power button (on the new slims continue to hold the button until the unit powers itself off).
2. Press the power button a second time and let the unit power down.
3. Power the PS3 back up, you should have playback through your analog hook-ups.
This little fandango will have to be repeated every time you relocate your game center on an HDTV and then back to a regular tv.
If this isn't the case, the first thing I would check is that your HDMI cable hadn't gone bad. Simply change that cable out with another and annotate the results. Then test the HDMI port with another playback device (blu-ray or up scaling dvd player) and see that the port isn't bad.
Other than these test hints, there may be little else to troubleshoot.
You can use the PANASONIC AUX IN ports for your TV or CABLE BOX audio, unless you run the DIGITAL CABLE into the PANASONIC, this may be available on the CABLE BOX or your TV, my suggestion is if you use the Cable box to view TV then use the CABLE BOX AUDIO OUTPUTS, you would be better with the CABLE BOX digital output INTO YOUR panasonic, but if it is already being used take the AUDIO out analog connection from your cable box into your Panasonic AUX INPUTS, then set the Panasonic to AUX IN mode.
If you're connected to a digital cable box, I would try using the external component connections and bypass the TV's tuner. If all you have is straight cable coming into the house, it could be the cable signal itself or a defective tuner in the TV assuming all the menu settings are correct in the TV.
Try an antenna if you want to get analog over the air. I have a feeling that with the way the standards are changing, you will only be able to get digital channels. After February, the analog channels won't be around.
If you are using cable tv you need an HDTV box to get high def.
