Question about Toshiba 50HDX82 50" Rear Projection Television
I've been trying to connect my Sony Playstation 3 Computer Entertainment System to this specific television, and I bought a DVI to HDMI adapter. However, when I plug the HDMI cord from my gaming system to the adapter, the DVI source on the TV won't show anything.
HDMI and DVI use the same encoding scheme for video purposes- the only difference is HDMI can carry audio signals and therefore have different connectors- so it is not like the lack of a picture signal is because you are using two different cables (HDMI and DVI). In theory the DVI to HDMI adapter should work.
Is there a possibility that the adapter is defective? Any bent or missing pins?
How long are the cables? If they are of poor quality, a digital signal can be lost at 20 feet. Again, in theory.
The only other thing I can thing of, off the top of my head is to ask, did you change the input selection on your t.v.'s display screen to go from the input source that you get your t.v stations from... to the input source of the Play Station?
