    I have the same problem as well, and i no notice that DVI does not transmit sound, as for a separater audio output, does that mean i need another sound system like external speakers for example?

A DVI Connection does not transmit sound, so you will need a seperate audio cable. Have you changed the settings in the ps3 and your tv's input to HD signal or 720 DPI, do not choose 1080i or 1080P as DVI does not support those high settings.

My monitor(HPL1950) was working good until i unplugged it to play on PS3. When i connected the monitor to my PS3 with HDMI it showed black screen. There is photo showing the screen. Help please

If your cennecting using an hdmi to dvi then you might want to check that your ps3 is only sending video and not video and sound as not all screens have a dvi port that supports sound and dvi. Also it could just be a resolution issue. Try having the resolution of your ps3 to 720 or possibly lower and see what happens. Then if all good work your way up to find what your monitor can handle.

When my ps3 is plugged into my samsung hln467w with an auvio hdmi to dvi cord there is no sound.what should i change so that i have the nice picture with sound?

Audio is only carried on HDMI and not DVI. You can get video only with this type of cable. HDMI to HDMI would work but not HDMI to any other connector. You can run a seperate dual RCA (red and white) to your system to get audio.

PS3 hdmi connection

With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

Play station 3 hdmi-dvi

Yes you can. It will not be like a HDMI cable but it will be better than the RCA. Your image will be in your HDTV (1920 × 1080). But you will have to buy a HDMI cable and and HDMI-DVI adaptor. You will not have sound so you will have to connect either your RCA or if you have a Digital Optical Audio sounds better.

If you have any questions just ask.

Good luck!

if you have no optional external speaker on the ps3 you may have an earphone socket which can be connected to your tv's pc sound input via a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack plugs.
