Hooking up ps3

To get 1080i (the 50V will not do 1080P) from the Blu ray player you do have to use HDMI output on the PS3 to the DVI input.

I found one at Walmart. Phillips makes an HDMI to DVI plug also at Wmart.

The PS3 must be set for the output you want on your TV.

Look in your manual in the PS3 box or go to

The web site has much more detailed instructions, but the basic answer to your question is below.

  • The cable required to output a particular video mode may not be included with the product and additional purchases may be necessary. For details, refer to the documentation supplied with your system.
  • If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.
  • Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP standard.

  • Hope that helps!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w

    Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

    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.

    I am using an HDMI cable on my STR-DG710 and get no sound

    A lot of devices like PS3, HD DVD Players, Cable boxes, etc., require you to define on the setup menu if sound will be coming out of the HDMI cable or not. Most of these devices can be set to HDMI Auto, but not all of them do.

    I currently have both my Blu-ray and HD DVD player outputting both video and sound through my HDMI into my STR-DG710. Both devices are setup to output sound through the HDMI.

    But like the other person on here posted, it you have a DVI to HDMI cable, you won't be getting sound. The only device that will output sound from a DVI to HDMI are select computer graphics adapters like the GeForce 9800 GT series video cards, and even not all of those will have this feature.

    Hope this helps.

    I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.

    With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.
