SOURCE: Panasonic 1080p Plasma TH-42PZ80U Home Theater Setup Question

Hey Gamer1827,

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.

Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.

In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.

Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.

Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

SOURCE: i am having problem setting

I do not own a PS/3, but I will try to help just in case you dont get another expert at this late hour....

It sounds like you need to save the changes on your PS/3. It is timing out and going back to default because the changes were not saved.

Hope I helped!

Does your TV work on VGA, it maybe worthwhile getting a HDMI---VGA lead and try that as it sounds like your TV isn't working, and you've tried the obvious. Do any other HDMI devices work on your TV, like DVD HD/SAT?

SOURCE: I have a panasonic Th-42pv500a.

the playstation detects that you are changing display settings. hopefully you still have the old red yellow and white cord that we all used to use to plug in stuff to your tv . use this cord to connect your playstation to the tv, it should pop up that you want to change display settings. then after you go through that unplug and recconect the hdmi and it should run you through it again, Another option - when you plug in your ps3 to the tv , turn everything on the tv and playstation. if nothing pops up turn off your tv and playstation , literaly unplug them from the outlet for a good minute then plug everything back in and you should fix it that way. hope one of these work

Have a Panasonic TH-37PX60U tv - can I hook it up to a HD Satellite receiver - have a Bell hd but don't get any reception


Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.

Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.

What do you mean by won't play? Does it turn on? Do you have the TV on the right input for the PS3?

Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up ps3 on hdmi cable, we have sound but no picture.


Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.

Linking up Plasma,PS3, and Receiver


If your tv and reciever have optical audio (square-ish hole with a red light), that would be the easiest way. Just get an optical audio cable and plug it into the optical out on the tv and into the optical in on the Sony.

Panasonic veira not working with the PS3 optical output


This sounds like a protocol compatiblity problem with the medias you are using. Check the set-up for the audio in all the devices connected to the TV set. Some of the older recordings and medias must have the sound set to simple stereo or mono. If there is no digital 5.1 data on the media source there is no way you are going to hear the sound if the equipment is set to that mode.
