PS3 Connection to TV problems

Had a new PS3 for xmas


joined network, downloaded guitar hero upgrades, upgraded software to latest

Even took to friends and used there

Then at home downloaded Demo of Uncharted, it loaded all promotional gismo and when asked to press start screen went pixellated.

Since then have been unable to get my tv to respond to PS3 with either HDMI cable or 3 colour cable

Just a blank screen on TV

Tried reseting to standrad so PS3 detects TV to no avail

Can you quickly mail me back or call me on 01624 815331


Looking forward to hearing from you, happy new year Toby......

Re: PS3 Connection to TV problems

So, you tried the Video Reset with your standard av cable hooked up...turn off rear power switch, then back on. Hold front power button to turn unit on for 8 seconds or so, which will reset the video settings....unit will give some double beeps letting u know this was successful. then turn off and on again.

Where to go after buying songs on band hero for ps3

Band Hero Songs for PS3
The title of the latest game in the Hero franchise is a little misleading. Band Hero sounds like a new direction for the franchise, a completely new brand. But other Hero games already include a full band (World Tour, Guitar Hero 5, Metallica). It's a strange title for a game that's basically Guitar Hero 5-2. Band Hero uses the same framework and ideas as GH5, just with less hard rocking and a lot more American Idol.

That's not to say that the entire setlist comes from current pop radio. You still have rock classics like "Bad Reputation" from Joan Jett and '90s hits like "Two Princes" from The Spin Doctors. But the special appearances in this game are decidedly more modern, with Taylor Swift and Adam Levine instead of Johnny Cash and Carlos Santana. The stages, clothes, and characters are more pop-infused as well, but I've never found the backgrounds and characters themselves to be the focus of these types of music games. Unless you're watching someone else play, the most important part of a music game is its playability.

Click the image above to check out all Band Hero screens.

Gameplay-wise, everything in Band Hero is the same as in GH5. You can still immediately jump into any song that's playing on the start screen. Every track is available in Quickplay without any codes or tedious unlocking. You can play a song with any mix of instruments you want. (Four lead guitars? No problem!) The career progression is a quick trip through increasingly more difficult songs without any repeats. Band Hero even includes all the same, varied multiplayer options from GH5. It's the same framework, so everything that GH5 did well, Band Hero also does excellently.

But that also means Band Hero contains the same niggling problems as GH5. The vocals are a little too hard to gauge pitch on. And, as a Hero game, even the lower difficulties are a little too punishing, which stands out even more in an increasingly casual-oriented franchise like this. I have friends who were frustrated by Band Hero's Medium setting, but who can competently play through Rock Band's games on Hard. It's not really a problem, but Band Hero also has 20 fewer songs on its tracklist (65 versus GH5's 85).

We tried two different guitar hero aerosmith games for Nintendo Wii and neither one will load

Used the Wii remote and clicked on teh icon where the game would usually be labeled and some sort of "upgrade software" menu came up. Upgraded software and then the game loaded no problem.
