Hitachi and PS3

How can I hook up a Hitachi 57UWX20B to a PS3? I tried a HDMI-DVI cable and could not get any sound. I also cannot get the game to work unless it is plugged into the front jacks. I also tried to switch the PS display settings and could not get it to accept anything new. HELP!

Re: Hitachi and PS3

Just a note, I am getting ready to buy the same TV. The person I am buying the TV from says the same thing. Not sure of the answer, but If you have the answer now I would like to know. As far as the sound goes, you will have to hook it up separately, the HDMI-DVI (Digital Video input) Video being the key word, it doesnt carry the audio signal. I hope to figure the problem out this weekend when I actually get te TV and try a few things.

When using PS3 on RCA D52W19 TV, the screen does not fit ( it is zoomed and off-center) in 1080i resolution.

Have you tried to toggle "format" or "screen size"? On those sets non HD and HD settings could be adjusted separately. Try that, first. If no luck, try similar settings on PS3. I bet, you will be able to match screen format there, as well. To me it looks, like picture formats are mismatched. Also: try to use "component" cables, instead of DVI adapter cable, if nothing works.
good luck,

A while ago, I attempted to hook up my Sony Playstation 3 to my RCA 52" Rear Projection Television (D52W20). I hooked it up via an hdmi cable with a dvi attachment since this particular tv does not...

Was the ps3 used with analog cables at one point? Turn PS3 on and then hold power button down until it beeps twice.. if that was the issue the picture should come on.

Hdmi cable connection

Your model has a DVI input which is at the top of component 1 section on the rear panel which is for HD input or you can use the RCA plug ins for HD inputs on the component 1 section as well. Either will allo HD to be hooked to your set.

I want to connect my ps3 via hdmi cable to my magnavox 51mp392h/17 hdtv but theres no hdmi jack on my tv what to i do?

If there is NO HDMI on the TV, There are 2 options to still get HD. 1. Check if your TV has a DVI input, If it does you need a DVI to HDMI converter. This can be a problem with some TV models it might not sync up 100%. 2. I recommend doing this, Purchase the Component Cable For the PS3 from Best Buy or any Game store. Make sure it is the ONE for the PS3!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This cable will give you up to 1080i resolution and stereo Audio. Plug in the Red, Green and Blue into the Component (R,G,B) Input in the TV, The Red and White (audio) will follow into the same Input (White and Red) just match the colors from the cable to the TV. On the PS3 in the Menu go to the 2nd row from the Left and down to DISPLAY SETTINGS. Select Component (under HDMI) check off everything except 1080p and then SAVE by pressing X. If you have a Receiver (AMP) that your Audio goes into, Then you can buy an Optical Cable for Surround Sound. Plug in the Optical cable then on the PS3 go into the menu, 2nd row, Sound Settings, Choose Optical, Then choose Auto and SAVE! Hope this will Help!

No picture

The model you mentioned does not have an HDMI input. Are you using a convertor from HDMI to DVI? If so there are several types of DVI cables/ inputs make sure you use the right one.

DVI/HDMI Cable lost my pic and sound

Try disconnecting the hdmI cable and the dvr box.
Connect the cable directly to the cable input.
Sometimes the dvr boxes will cause this problem
after you connect the hdmi cable.

I have a phillips 26pf5520d/10 model number, ive connected a dvi cable and hdmi cable to my playstation 3 and tv, but i have no sound, please any ideas. many thanks steph

I'm assuming you mean you have HDMI coming out of the PS3 and going in to the DVI port on the back of the TV, via an adaptor or cable with a different connector on either end.
I have the same TV, you need a separate audio connection between ps3 and tv. HDMI can transmit audio and video but DVI (which is what the TV has) can only do video.
You'll need a 2 x phono female to 3.5mm jack male adaptor cable. like this one to make the audio connection.
you could also try this adaptor but its a bit big and therefore may not fit into the space available.
after getting an adaptor do this (keep your original setup the same)
1. Put the ps3 AV cable into the back of the ps3. 2. then connect the red and white plugs (ignore the yellow) from the ps3 AV into the adaptor (discussed above). 3. then connect the 3.5mm jack (from the adaptor) into the small audio port right next to the DVI port on the back of the TV (I believe its called 'DVI Audio')
I've not tried this and I don't have a ps3, yet, but in theory it should work, as long as the ps3 will send audio to the av output at the same time as to the hdmi output.
if it works, then post a response, i'd like to know for the future.
good luck
