Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

HD hookups I have tried both HD hookups on my TV the component and the HDMI. The component being hooked up causes a discolored purple line to roll up the screen repeatedly...if my HD converter is unhooked the line goes away and vice versa....the HDMI hums like a 1970 VW bug....very loud....I have a dlp television and did not have these problems when my XBOX 360 was hooked up in the HD ports....what can I do?

    i have the same problem, a hum as if i have a guitar amp turned up, and two horizontal lines rolling up and down the screen

    I dont have the video problem per say, however I can just plug in the power cord to the PS3 unit and the wall socket and the hum starts without even turning the unit on. I have tried everything I can think of to make is stop humming but nothing is working. What other solutions can you suggest?

Generally, hum is a by-product of interference between the AC power cord and wires carrying the signal. Try and arrange the power cord to be perpendicular to the input wire. If that does NOT work, I doubt a surge suppressor has anything to do with the issue. But try that first. Also, have you installed a surge protector? If not, then maybe you could think about installing one. Hope this helps

When hooking up blu ray with hdmi to component converter i get audio but no video just dots and lines on the tv

Hi Joanne
I would suspect the quality of component converter device...

HDMI is the latest state of the art for HD (High Definition 1080) video signal. Poor cables or poor connectors can cause weird results.
It's best to go from HDMI to HDMI.
If the tv doesn't have a HDMI input then it probably can't handle the newer standard.
Component Video is an old standard for video before we got high definition. It uses three separate wires.
Try swapping the coloured wires around to see the result.
Good Luck

How do i hookup my magnavox mrd 210 to my lcd tv for surround sound. have tried to connect with rca wires in back of tv to surround sound system and nothing. tried side of tv and nothing. my surround sound...

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

All hdmi connections not working on a samsung ue40c8000 every thing else seems to be ok. done a factory reset does this sound like a new board costly? regards. Norman

The tv Samsung refurbish main tv Turner signal board will set u back like $120-130 bucks + shipping and handleling and u must have to have some basic mechanicals skills like take things aparts and putting it back togther again to fixed this tv just for the used of those HDMI hubs ports again.My questions to u is?Does ur tv used 100% must require those useages of those HDMI hubs ports.Not just used the Samsung tv as is.My Samsung tv have the same problems.I just work around it by skipping all the useages of all those HDMI ports hubs of the tv altogther.Most poeple just used about like 3 HDMI ports hubs for like a HD cable box or DVR cable box and a PS3,WII games systems or Blu Ray DVD player.All these devices can go through hook up for like a RCA component cables hook up like AV1,AV2 and last one a HD hookup by a RCA component cable just add 2 more components wires like a green and purple connections or just buy a set of RCA components cable that design for a HD output.I did that,must more reliable set up too.Because those RCA components cables set up have more plastics in it connections for insulation holes for little shorts and sparks better than those HDMI ports hubs and HDMI cables barely help and the plastic for insulation is a joke almost non exiten.Those all dam HDMI ports hubs are all link into one path way on the circuit board,one dies or got shorted all dies and get shorted out.

How do I hook this up to a COMCAST Cable Box...or do I hook it to the audio of the TV? Are cables the best or should I just buy an HDMI cable?

Cable (and any source) audio should go digitally and directly to your AV receiver. HDMI would work, too, but the TV would be the best place to send the HD video if you only have the one HDMI output at the Comcast box.

OTOH, I compared both HDMI and the component video hookups to my HDTV and could not see the difference. So I run my BD on HDMI (because it is by FAR the best video the TV will ever get) and component video from the HD cable box to the TV (because all broadcast video is bit- and bandwidth-limited somewhere along the line).

TV audio almost never originates with the TV unless it has an antenna, so why would you want to feed its audio to the receiver?

I have a 32inch Phillips HD ready TV but there does not seem to be and HD input for my DVD player

"HD input" is HDMI. If the DVD doesn't have HDMI output then use the 5 wire hookup - the component hookup.
The TV input for HD would be HDMI or component input - 5 wires.

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...

This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

I ended up using the component in cable hookup and fiber optic digital audio instead of HDMI - works fine.

While playing xbox 360 in 1080p mod, the screen frequently blanks

Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.
