How do I hook up a playstation 3 to my mitsubishi medallion hd 1080

The best way to hook up is via the HDMI port. Connect a HDMI cable from the PS3's HDMI port the tv's HDMI port. As soon as you power the PS3 and tv on, you should see the initial setup screen.If it does not dispay press and hold the power button of the PS3 for about 5-10 seconds till you hear a couple of beeps and the initial setup screen. After that its just following on screen instrucions to choose your language, resolution(1080i for best quality), aspect ratio(16:9 works best for large screen tvs) etc., If there is some setting that you are unsure about as to what you should choose, let me know and I will help you with that.

PS3 surround sound

You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!

Cant change my display settings from the 480i input

Whay kind of cable are you hooking it to your TV with...?

The one that comes with the ps3 is only capable of NTSC, or 480. If that is the cable you are trying to use, you will have to get an HDMI cable, or the component cable (the one with 5 rca's plugs, 3 vid 2 audio), as these cables are capable of the full 720 and 1080 resolutions.
