Be sure you have the HDMI cable in the correct slot for the input channel you are trying to connect. Try another input channel like HDMI 2, 3, or 4 depending on how many channels you have. If you have another TV with HDMI, try plugging it in the other one to see if it is a problem with your TV or the PS3.

    Oh, also, sometimes the factory sets the PS3 to use the component, or RCA cables instead of the HDMI. Try plugging in the Yellow, White, and Red A/V cables into the TV and see if you get a picture when you power on your PS3, then (with the HDMI cable still plugged in) try to go to system settings and change the video output settings to HDMI for video and audio.

Cant retune through dvd player


Sounds like a few things going on here... Your indoor antenna for one is probably not making it easy for you as an outdoor antenna will work a whole lot better. This is why it open picks up half the channels and they are pixelating. Also you may have faulty rf leads. Replace these.

How to set up LG RH 387H HDD/DVD recorder for recording fron T.V


First, please note that your LG 387H is capable only of tuning analog channels, not the digital ones...

The easiest way is to connect your recorder directly to your incoming cable, then connect the output of your recorder to the TV set. Depending on what your set has available, either connect the HDMI OUT to HDMI IN on your set (best picture), or the A/V OUT to your sets A/V IN. Leave your set on the input you have selected, and use your recorder to change channels.

I cant get any picture on my sony tv when i connect my ps3 upto it, yet get a picture instantly on a cheap 26 inch hd tv. i'm using a hdmi cable on both


Silly question -- but are you sure your Sony TV is on the correct HDMI channel? My 32 inch LCD has HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3. You must make sure you plug the PS3 into the correct HDMI channel and make sure you're tuned into the same one.

How would i know if my HDMI ports are working or not?? Tried to connect a PS3 to it but nothing. Thought it may have been the cable so checked someones that i know is working and still nothing. Checked...


As you already checked PS3 and HDMI cable,
select HDMI input in TV and connect PS3 via HDMI cable. TV should show PS3 picture.
And if still no joy then HDMI input port in TV is bad and need to replace input board/ main board.

Stuck on hdmi


Just plug the AV cable in as normal. The PS3 auto-detects the AV cable. Turn your PS3 on first, then your TV. Change the channel on your TV to your AV channel (YPBPR) and it should come on fine.

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
