Problem with DVI Port

I am trying to connect my Sony PS3 to my Protron 37" PLCD-TV using the DVI Port. I understand that I can't get audio through that but I'm trying to hit one problem at a time. Can you help me with this? Nothing seems to be working. I bought an HDMI to DVI cable to go from the PS3 to the TV and all I get is black screen.

    I've already tried that and I get "Invalid Signal". I have been told that it is an HDCP problem, in that my TV is not HDCP compliant....which sucks because I paid a lot of money for this TV.

You might be running into a problem if you haven't changed the video settings on the PS3 to send digital video. Try that first.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????

If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

Is the 42" philip plasma

If you really want, you can use an old CRT TV as a monitor provided you get it connected.... so your plasma... YES. If your PC has a DVI port, you could use a DVI - HDMI cable to connect. If your PC does NOT have a DVI port, you could install a video card that does... better yet, get a video card that has a HDMI port. This way, you'll only need a HDMI cable to connect the PC to the TV for audio and video.

I have an RCA D52W20 that I connected to my PS3 with an HDMI/DVI Cable. The display is fine in 480i. However, No sound is coming from the TV.

This is normal my friend. A dvi port can't use audio even if it is using a hdmi cable. A easy fix is to connect your A/V cable into your ps3 and connect the red and white cables next to your dvi cable or connect it to your stereo. After that go into your setting, go to audio setting, click on audio output, and select A/V cable. it should work after that.

Where is the HDMI cable connection port?

This model has a DVI connection. You will need to install a cable as shown. This will only carry the video. For the audio, you will need to use a pair of RCA cables, the same as those which are used for all other connections. Theses connections are located on the back of the TV, along with the cable RF jack. The DVI connection is normally the last input (ex: input 6 or 7).

No sound when my computer is connected to my Sony Bravia TV

If your computer has a svga output use input 7 on tv with vga to vga cable and 3.5-3.5 Radioshack 42-2387 cable for audio for best results. If you use the dvi to hdmi on input 6 on tv use 3.5- rca Radioshack part number 42-2551 1/8=3.5mm.

I have a phillips 26pf5520d/10 model number, ive connected a dvi cable and hdmi cable to my playstation 3 and tv, but i have no sound, please any ideas. many thanks steph

I'm assuming you mean you have HDMI coming out of the PS3 and going in to the DVI port on the back of the TV, via an adaptor or cable with a different connector on either end.
I have the same TV, you need a separate audio connection between ps3 and tv. HDMI can transmit audio and video but DVI (which is what the TV has) can only do video.
You'll need a 2 x phono female to 3.5mm jack male adaptor cable. like this one to make the audio connection.
you could also try this adaptor but its a bit big and therefore may not fit into the space available.
after getting an adaptor do this (keep your original setup the same)
1. Put the ps3 AV cable into the back of the ps3. 2. then connect the red and white plugs (ignore the yellow) from the ps3 AV into the adaptor (discussed above). 3. then connect the 3.5mm jack (from the adaptor) into the small audio port right next to the DVI port on the back of the TV (I believe its called 'DVI Audio')
I've not tried this and I don't have a ps3, yet, but in theory it should work, as long as the ps3 will send audio to the av output at the same time as to the hdmi output.
if it works, then post a response, i'd like to know for the future.
good luck

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
