Question about Maxent MX-42HPM20 42 in. Plasma HDTV
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.

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
