    OK no prob.

    Hook up the AV cables from the PS3 to the Bose. (Red and White)

    No go into the PS3.

    Go to:

    SETTINGS, Audio Output Settings.

    Choose the bottom option. You should see the RED and WHITE connector graphic.

    Press right to enter the next menu, press X.

    That should do the trick.

I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...

You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    Xbox 360 and bose surround sound no video

    If your TV is HD, you should definitely be connecting the component video cables (green, blue and red) from the 360 to the TV (the 321 will not do video pass-thru from component cables). -Make sure you have a picture at this point. (TV switched to whichever input you connect the 360 to)
    You can get an RCA extension cable for the audio portion (red and white) to connect to the 321 for audio. You could also connect an optical audio cable to the 321. An optical cable must be assigned from the system menu to work..
    Let me know if this helps.

    How do i get my playstation 3 to connect to my bose 321 system?

    Very simple. Red and White RCAs into any available input on the back of the 321. If the PS3 A/V cable can't separate the audio from the video (yellow RCA) by length of cable then get an RCA extension.
    You can also connect this digitally with an optical cable (better sound) but you need to assign the optical cable to an input from your system menu. Your system menu can only be displayed on the TV from the video out of the 321. Go to "media center" and then down to "optical source"

    Picture quality on hdtv

    Well it might be working just fine. Personal preference of HD plays a great role in this. Try asking other people if they think it looks HD worthy. If the cords work just fine and are plugged in into the correct A/V jacks, then it could just be your personal preference on what HD is.

    PS3 starts up but doesn't show up on the screen.

    You can try resetting the video. I had one that went out on me like that, and Sony told me to hold down the power button till you hear 2 beeps this will reset the video settings.

    I never did get the playstation3 fixed so I tore it apart and learned what makes it tick. Very interesting.
