Re: ati cga 9258atd
Firstly I want you to make sure that there are no damage to the connectors of your cables or on the ports on your screen card and TV, like bend or missing/dirty pins/wire connections.
Secondly make sure that the display is enabled in ATi Catalyst Control Center.
The connectors you will be using if I understand you correctly will be DVI-to-HDTV (Component video).
Follow the "click here" link at http://support.ati.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=22474 for a detailed instruction set of how to connect your Screen Card to your HDTV via Catalyst Control Center.

HDMI and DVI are both digital signals, therefore if you used DVI - DVI it would be the same as HDMI - HDMI.
If you really want to use HDMI - HDMI you could purchase a DVI - HDMI adaptor for your graphics card. Contact your favorite computer store.
Hopefully you are getting your latest graphics driver and Catalyst Control from AMD. If you know how to do a custom uninstall of VGA and Catalyst, then a custom install of VGA and Catalyst; http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx You should really try to limit switching the cables and definately do your switching with system off or you will mess up your resolution. If you can use your existing HDMI cable for your PS3, you can get an ATI HDMI to DVI adaptor and you will get the sound also out of your DVI output. The connector is $5.00 and you will need an additional HDMI cable. This will be your best bet especially if you have more than 1 HDMI input on your tv. I am absolutely positive this will work for you. You can get the adaptor here #6141054300G; http://www.txcesssurplus.com/servlet/Categories
you have to go into control panel hardware and sound, now click on sound, you will see speakers with a green check next to it. on top you will see HDMI enable those and hit test button. this is part of device no worry bout bios or motherboard. Just make sure you use the adapter that came with the video card it will only work with the supplied adapter. Not a dvi to hdmi cable. this will work. i hope this helps and good luck. I can coach you more but i am not sure of your operating system. i was coaching you using vista.
Did you switch the TV input to S-Video on the TV control panel (usually accessible via the remote)? You will also likely need to fit a 1/8" (mini-headphone jack) connector from your PC to RCA (Red and White audio standard) connectors on the TV - this cable can be purchased in many places. The S-Video connector doesn't carry audio like an HDMI connector will.
