If your PS3 has HDMI capability and the monitor has HDMI capability, it should work as long as the monitor can match to the specs of the PS3.

I am not sure, but I think the PS3 required the capability of 1080p from the TV set. Make sure that your TV is able to see 1080p.

For HDTV, the standard A/V cable set is of no use. That is why your monitor probably does not support the standard A/V format.

My lg flatron n2294a - PM displays an "out of range" message and won't wirk with my ps3 when using the hdmi or AV option. Whats wrong?

Your resolution on your ps3 may be too high for the tv to display. Hook up your PS3 to you TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3, hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds. It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection. It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV. Press (X) to confirm. And that's it. You should be set. If not, then the TV is acting rather strange.

Trying to connect ps2 to samsung syncmaster have connected the red and whie cables but all i get is a fuzzy black and white picture - do i need a different cable??

Is the cable you are using a set of Yellow, Red & White cables? If so do you have them plugged into the ports on the "side" of the Monitor? or are you trying to use the ports on the back?

It should be hooked up to the ports on the side.

Yes, there is. It's actually fairly simple, but there is one problem you may run into. Before bothering to buy any of the adapters or try and set anything up, check your monitor's specs and be sure it's HDCP compliant. Without this little detail, a PS3 will not play on any screen.

Now once your sure your monitor is HDCP compliant, your going to need a few things.

First, your going to need an VGA to HDMI cord, or an DVI to HDMI cord. Your monitor uses both these connections, so feel free to go with whichever works for you. You can find cords like this for cheap on Amazon, and I can vouch for this one personally, I use it and it's not given me a bit of trouble.

Now, unless your using speakers that already hooked up to the monitor, your going to need an RCA to 3.5mm adapter (Your everyday headphone jack is a 3.5mm plug.) They are really cheap, and can be found all over the place. Amazon, your local electronics store, EBay, all have these little handy objects. I can again vouch for this one personally, and I love using it, so keep this little thing handy. (Think headphones, when you don't want to use speakers.) NOTE: Make sure you get a 2xRCA to 1x3.5mm adapter, check the link above to see a picture of what your looking for.

Now, once you have both these pieces, it's time to set up your connections.

Step 1. Plug the VGA/DVI to HDMI (Let's call this Video Cord), into your monitor and PS3.

Step 2. Plug the original cord that came with your PS3 into the console as well. This cord should have an end that plugs into a TV, with one each of a Yellow, Red, and White plug. These are RCA jacks.

Step 3. Now take your little RCA to 3.5mm adapter and plug the White and Red ends into it. Don't worry about the Yellow end, this is the video plug and you don't need it now that your using an HDMI connection.

Step 4. Plug your speakers into the 3.5mm plug on your adapter. Power on the speakers.

Step 5. Now turn on the Monitor first, and then PS3. You should see the screen come on, and the PS3 should be telling you it found an HDMI connection, and would you like to switch to it. Select Yes and press X.

Step 6. Now that you can see what's on your PS3, go into the settings section of the menu. Click down to the Sound Settings choice, near the bottom, and press X. Press X again to enter the Audio Output Settings. Click down to the Audio Input Connector/ SCART / AV MULTI choice, and the press -> on the D-pad. Now press X once more and your all set!

Now go back to the menu and move around a bit, you should hear the clicking sounds as you switch to a new item. Start up a game and enjoy the sounds and sights, because your finished.

Good luck and have fun, and please feel free to leave any comments or further questions you might have in the Comments. Feedback is always welcome.

Need to connect my DSTV decoder through my sony amplifier (5.1) not sure of a the cabling or the connections, does someone perhaps ahve a wiring diagram to connect TV, dstv decoder and sony 5.1 amplifier?...

well this is easier than you think, get yourself a set of RCA's (the red and white and yellow cables that DVD players come with) look behind your decoder and place them colour to colour, then behind your Amp you will read (TV IN) do the same, then with just one yellow RCA plug it into (monitor) that one will then go to the (AV input) behind your TV.. And presto!!! now set your amp input on the remote to TV and your off!! good luck
