SOURCE: when i connect my laptop to sony bravia with an

The HDMI port does not support computer connections. You can only connect a PC to the VGA port. (The computer signal from the video card isn't the same format as the output of a Blu-ray player.) The best choice might be a HDMI to VGA cable if your computer doesn't have a VGA port. (If it does have a VGA port, enable it if needed and use a VGA cable.) There will be signal loss on the HDMI to VGA cable (digital to analog conversion). If you were planning to watch DVDs played on the laptop, you might get as good a picture with the laptop's own screen.

I wish I could be of more help.

(some TVs have an HDMI/DVI jack and those can take the computer HDMI output. Your TV isn't one of them. If you want more information, check the manual http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDL32S2000.)

Hooking up my ps3 using HDMI cord to my olevia 232-S13 and it says invalid format


Setting up your HDMI cable on your PS3 games console

1: Turn on your TV and set its input to HDMI.

2: Make sure your PS3 is connected via a HDMI cable.

3: Power on your PS3 and press and hold the power button for approx. 5 seconds, you will hear the PS3 start to beep, release the power button after the second beep.

4: Your PS3 should automatically configure itself for HDMI video and Audio output.

When I hook my ps3 up to my Sony Bravia tv it comes up invalid format. Any suggestions? But doesn't do that when I hook it up to other sony


Disconnect any SCART leads.

  1. Connect your HDMI lead to your TV HDMI 1 port and PS3.
  2. Now turn OFF your TV, then turn OFF your PS3
  3. Now wait 15 seconds.
  4. Now turn on your TV and follow this carefully......
  5. Now press and hold the "ON" button on your PS3 until it cycles at least once.  
  6. Wait 2 seconds and it should handshake properly and make the connection.
I had the same issue, was a pain until I saw the solution on another site.

"Invalid Format" message


Hello,

This should help you. I think Chris Duckworth said it best. "sounds to me like your refresh rates or resolution may be set too high on the XP machine."

Go to this website to get the rest about setting up your tv as a monitor. Type invalid in the word search to get to the relevant section.

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

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!

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
