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!

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.

Best way to hook up ps3 to hitachi 50v500 for best quality picture and audio

The HDMI output on the PS3 to the DVI input on the 50V is the best video option. Be sure to set the PS3 to the matching output. If you need instructions for this, go to:

The best audio option I have used is is the digital optical out on the PS3 to a surround sound reciever that has an optical input. We have a Denon reciever. The sound is excellent for a game, very good for movies, and music sounds good too. Unless you are an audiophile, this should give you impressive results.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All picture and no sound

simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.

Acer H213H No sound

Dude, the hdmi is just for the video signal, you'll have to use a separate audio cable to get sound from the integrated speakers.

Ps3 hook up

Yes, you can! But not straight out of the box. You need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable adapter. It will convert it so your tv can use it. Here is a link to some:

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable

Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

Hdmi to dvi

a DVI Connection does not transmit sound, so you will need a seperate audio cable. Have you changed the settings in the ps3 and your tv's input to HD signal or 720 DPI, do not choose 1080i or 1080P as DVI does not support those high settings.
