Is there any alternative to using hdmi input to the tv

Yes, there are several ways to connect to the tv. HDMI is the (NEWER) way to connect the console. The reason being, is because HDMI carries both video and audio. The standard way to connect is by using the provided (RCA) cords that came with the system. They connect by splitting the video(yellow) and audio(white=left red=right) Almost all tv's out now have either HDMI or the audio/video inputs, and are typically cable ready.(little threaded plug in the back that your cable box hooks into) You can purchase a cable ready adapter from game stop or even use the one from an existing PS2 or PS1. They all use the same adapter from the system. The only difference is, if you don't connect with HDMI then you are NOT going to have high def available. It will be in standard def all the time. The final way to connect is a bit difficult. It requires a bit of knowledge in what your doing. HDMI to a HDMI adapter to DVI-I or DVI-D monitor. Some tv's come equiped with a DVI-D input so it can double as a monitor for a computer. This way WILL give you HIGH DEF and arguably the best picture you will ever get because you can set the frame rate (frpm) your self. Hope this info is useful. Good luck. ^^

PS3 to Infocus LP 350 projector using HDMI


M1-DA is a type of DVI connection that produces both analogue and digital signals, the easiest and most quality source cable for you to get is a HDMI to M1-DA cable which is now widely available for purchase.

Infocus should have included this cable in with your projector, but instead the power at bee decided to put a M1-DA to DVI-D cable instead when most visual devices now support HDMI and not DVI nowadays.

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port

I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

Ps3 hdmi cable with adapterto tv's rca's

Just use the regular AV cords. They are 480i using an HDMI to this and that isn't going to improve picture quality.

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.

Hdmi to dvi

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.
