Ps3 is in hdmi1 and direct tv and wii has to share the video input because my tv doesn't have enough outlets so I have to switch cables every time . How can I get the wii to work ?

What you could do is setup the PS3 to HDMI-1, DirectTV to HDMI-2(or whatever compatable) and setup the Wii to either a component cable(RGBWR) or a Composite cable (YWR).
I'm not sure you can support all 3 systems through 1 HDMI cable, Not unless there is a tree cable that you have to all three. And even then only one could be on at a time.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".

If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

PS3 hdmi only working on some displays

I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

Have had psp3 hooked up for 2 years, set up on video 2, with direct tv it has now started flashing no signal.

PS3?????PSP????????PSP3000???????I assume its a ps3, probably(if you use an HDTV) you have 1-3 HDMI,,or component,or composite(standard) (I have 2 of each) In which your direct TV might be taking it...... OR if you have an animal or infestation check your cables to see if something on the tips is bent or the cable chewed up.......this is all i could think of...

HDMI causes red lines (static?) on screen

im having the same problem to fix it i unhook my cable box (the video cables and the hdmi inputs to the tv) this stops the lines--try just the ps3 hooked to the tv and no other devices this should solve the problem--must be getting interference from some device

PS3 hdmi cable

Hold the power button for 5 seconds or more, that will reset to regular viewing ratio. From there you can adjust to whatever you are using. I had the same problem.
