There are certain settings on the PS3 that has to be changed each time that you switch from High Def to AV. You have to plug both cords in and turn the PS3 on and view the screen with the High Def. You have to go to Settings --> Display Settings --> Video Output Settings
then follow the instructions.
Watch this video and it will help you switch from High Def to AV.

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. ^^

HDTV cable hookup for HD component video


High Def (720p, 1080i) requires either HDMI or component video cable connections. This image shows how to connect using component video/audio. The RCA cables are green, blue, red for video and white and red for audio. Select the HDTV input using the TV remote.<br /><br /><img src="alexander404.jpg" /><br />

We are trying to hook up our 65" Mitsubishi DLP TV to our JVC surround sound...basically we can get the DVD to work with surround sound but when we have the tv on our sound doesn't come out of our...


That cable doesn't exist. You can't just shoot electrons into one end of a copper cable and have light come out the other end.

My $.02...

Treat your TV like the primary user of the Hi-Def Video ONLY, not the source of any audio. Ask yourself, does it really NEED to be in an audio chain if it doesn't tune the station off the air?

Your JVC should be the primary destination of high-end audio, directly from, say, the Cable Box' while the Hi-Def video is sent to the TV.

Zigzagging good audio and video through the room to devices that don't need it is expensive and wasteful, plus it adds complexity and unnecessary connections that add nothing but could fail.

I have a AVR-591. I hooked everything up and all works great. The only thing I want to know is when I turn off the receiver I have no TV. How do I bypass the receiver so I can watch TV without the reciever...


You said the magic word - BYPASS.

Your TV source is probably a cable or sat box. They usually have multiple audio and video OUTputs and most TV's have multiple audio and video INputs.

Run the box's analog RCA Audio Out to the TV (assuming it has speakers). Set the box's internal volume setting (if it has one) to FIXED and modulate theTV volume with ITS control.

HI-DEF:

Lacking sufficient hi-def inputs on the TV, I'd elect for Component Video from the box and HDMI from your BD player, if you have one. Cable video is bit-rate compromised while BD source is NOT so BD should get the best connection.

I personally have NO high-end video going into my receiver and no high-end audio going to my TV. Why bother with hops?

We have cable T.V. should we run the cable though T.V. when we use s-video cables or use cable though vcr then T.V.


I would hope that you would use a HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your LCD TV - why not display the highest resolution to your screen that you can. HDMI will transmit the 1080P high def signal to your screen. These cables can be found at Wallmart and Target or even Best Buy. Don't need the most expensive and or a 6' length or short will work just fine.
Then use your S-Video cable to connect your VCR/DVD to your LCD TV - This is not a High Def signal - only 480i if that. The P means Progressive or 1080 lines from top to bottom. the I means Interlaced to which means 240 lines once for field one then 240 lines for field two.
You may want to think of a blue ray player to which upconverts your older DVD's to 4x3 High Def resolution.

Xbox 360 sound but no picture can any one help


If you've just bought your xbox 360, then you probably haven't got a HDMI cable.

Panasonic legacy connection


s-video is a legacy connection. legacy means obsolete and this will impare your image.

what you should do is connect the cable box and blue ray directly to tv with hdmi cable, then run audio cables back to the reciever from these devices. the vcr and regular dvd player would be routed through the reciever the conventional way. you would have to change the inputs on the tv between the cable box, and blue ray if u have one, and a seperate single tv imput for components running thru the stereo. you would have to use the reciever to select between audio sources, and the video sources between the vcr and dvd only.
