I tried to hook up a playstation3 for the Blu-Ray player and it would not work. Only 480p resolution worked. In the playstation manual it said that some older tv's may not have a certain decoder to make it work.
Can this be added or do I need a new tv?
Hey. You need to first make sure your tv supports 1080p resolution. 1080p can only come from a blueray disc player via HDMI connection. If your tv does support this resolution, you then need to go into the settings on your ps3 to manually switch resolution output to HDMI along with all audio selections for dolby digital you want to make. ps3's are not set to HDMI out of the box, you need to set that up. Use the composite cables temporarily to change resolutions from 480 to 1080p via hdmi in settings then switch back to the HDMI cable to get picture after you have selected it. Component cables( red, green, blue) will pass high definition up to 1080 i but it will not pass 1080p so make sure you have the correct resolution tv, then the correct cables.
For this unit and the addition of the secuity features of Blu-Ray, the 1080i you set can handle is through the component input from a DVD player or an XBOX. In the configuration menu of the PS3, change the resolution to 1080i and see if your set will reset to it. The 1080i on the Blu-Ray is only possible on the HDMI cable as far as I could find, again due to the security restriction. The Mitsu is not going to run it in 720p due to the PS3 is running component and cannot control sync to this set.

This is a CRT TV with support for 480 line progressive scan (480p) via the Component/ColorStream sockets (Y,Pb,Pr).
The TV's resolution is too low- and the connection method unsuitable for hooking up a PC without spending a bundle of some signal conversion boxes. It would be as cheap or cheaper to buy a used flatscreen and a Smart Blu-ray player with Netflix built in, then connect by HDMI.
If you want to persist with the TV then have a look for a Smart Blu-ray player with Component output as well as the standard HDMI sockets.
You don't. The TV's resolution can't be changed. Only the signal resolution from the source can be altered.
The TV reports the resolution of the incoming signal before it is scaled. If you have a BD player you can see the effect of changing the resolution setting from 480p, to 720p, to 1080i, to 1080p 60, to 1080p 24. The last three (the 1080 resolutions) shouldn't look too different with a Blu-ray apart from movement because the native picture is 1080p 24 and the TV is simply converting it back to 1080p 24 for display.
have you tried to connect the Philips direct to the TV's hdmi?
Could be the resolution on the bluray is set to 1080p which may be out of range for the receiver or even the TV for that matter. If you can reset the output resolution of the bluray to 480p first, just to establish a picture then try 720P which all HD tv's and receivers can handle.
I did a quick search and could not find the resolution reset procedure for this unit. Other units will reset if you press and hold 2 or more buttons together.
I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.
Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.
Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.
I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!
