They are all wrong. I have this TV. What you think is an optical output actually isn't. The only audio output is coaxial and unfortunately it doesn't work with the HDMI inputs. This TV is a headache if your blue ray player only had HDMI.
Your TV is a High-Def TV (HDTV) therefore you need a Rogers cable box and service capable of High-Definition in order to get the HD resolution you paid for with the HDTV. HD video requires HDMI or component video cable connections. Standard RCA AV (yellow, white, red) will not show HD video.
Having said that, you may want to hookup a game or VCR to the TV and therefore you will need to get a cable known as an AV miniplug. It has RCA (3) on one end for the VCR for example and on the other end is a Mini-plug to connect to the HDTV (Sharp). This cable is like the ones used on camcorders such as Sony. Make sure you get a cable with the right ends as depicted in your manual on page 14.
You'll have to Google online for a supplier. Sparco.com had these cables but are out of stock currently.
Are you certain you are using an HDMI cable, and are you certain you are looking at the correct plug on the TV? Are you certain the TV is HDMI capable? Many TV's have USB slots, and they look a lot like HDMI slots. And, the HDMI slots may not be in the same area as all the other inputs.
It sounds similiar to a problem we've had with ours, all components would work in hdmi 1, but hdmi 2 would only work intermitently. They ended up replacing the digital board (fortunately we have the extended warrenty, I'm sure it's not cheap). Sorry hope this helps.
There are PS3-components cables available out there (the Red/Green/Blue one) you can use to connect your PS3 to your TV and still get HDTV on your TV system. You should be able to get it where you bought your Playstation. Got one for 39.99$ CAN
The HDMI cable plugs into the TV and other sources. Make sure you have the correct HDMI cable for your set. Each cable handles both audio and video. Turn it over if it does not fit in. It only fits one way.
You need one cable for each source and your TV has to have at least one jack for each source or you need to buy a switch box, if it has only one and you have several. You then must select the correct source on your TV for the input. Your satellite box (DVD or VHS) each must have a HDMI jack to use this cable on each.
