Yes, there is a connector that will convert the video (yellow rca jack) cable to a vga connection then just connect the audio cables to an audio input on your speakers or stereo for sound. Just google "rca to vga cable" and you will see good examples of whats out there. You will however only get the standard resolution of 480i.

Connect ps3 to acer model AL1702W


There are two options:

- Buy an adapter cable (HDMI to VGA) and plug into the monitor that way.

- The second, better option is to buy a new monitor because the PS3 outputs a higher resolution than your monitor does right now, causing the PS3 to scale its output down making it look worse.

Use the WiFi connection if you have a WiFi Router with your broadband connection , its much easier, you only set it up once, and you can move your PS3 wherever you want..all you need to do is configure the settings from your PS3 and will need your WEP or WAP Key from your computer's WiFi router. Look for it under Settings > Control pannel > Wireless Network Setup Wizard

Ps3 wired connection


Hi There.

If your PS3 is Networked upto Your PC to use the internet connection, You have to allow the PC to share its Internet connection with yout PC, Do this By going into Network settings, Checking the properties of your LAN card in your PC. and clicking on, "share my internet". This should alleviate that problem..

Or.

If your PS3's Wired connection isnt working. but your PC one is, Try moving your PS3 Lan cable into one of the other Free LAN Ports (if available) or Try Switching the PC cable over to the PS3's Port in the Router, and Visa-Versa !

PS3 setup to Denon AVR 2807 & Samsung LCD


Azahid

Since you are running the to LCD monitor instead of a LCD TV this is where you run into the issue. because the monitor is not setup to pull out the audio from the HDMI connection. So there is a few ways that you maybe able to to this.

The first one is look around at the different output cables out there the PS3. (I just got one so I do not know the accessories that are out for the PS3) This is becoming a common setup so if Sony does not have cable that will split off the audio then a 3rd party group may. I know they have one like that for the XBOX 360.

Another you can try is if your monitor will except an analog connection you may need to go that way. That is how I have my XBOX 360 that is my room connected. I have a RBG HD to VGA connect the VGA input on the monitor and the audio going to my sound card.

The reason why I suggested going analog is that right with our curent technology that if you are run with the 2 formats at the same time you will get audio/video sync issues. So you need to go all analog or all digital.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this and/or need me to clarify anything.

If Im not mistaken, that Acer monitor only has a VGA connection for input. There is no way that Im aware of to have the PS3 output VGA, so I believe the answer is no, you will not be able to. sorry.
