Possible to successfully connect a Catleap (non Multi) to PS3/Xbox? - Page 2

No worries Jerrolds, cheers for trying.

Hmm, interesting, so all I should need is a standard HDMI to DVI adapter (eg. link) and it should work as long as the PS3 is set to 720p. I guess I'd need to connect it to a TV with HDMI to get into the interface first then. Thinking of buying a PS3 to play The Last of Us as it looks like a must-play title and maybe a few others.

I wonder if anyone can confirm this to be the case with a non-Multi Catleap?



Cheers

I'd advise against it to be honest. Is your Catleap going to be the only monitor you own? If so, get a multi-input. If it isn't, then your ps3 would likely look better running 1080p throughyour other monitor.

Well for the foreseeable future I would say, I have a Catleap 2B and a regular Q270SE SE right now. I was thinking about replacing the SE with a Multi for this purpose but the prices have shot up since I got mine for around £240 a year ago (now around £400 ?!). Unless I opt for some of the newer brands on the market like WeCube, X-Star, etc., which are going for around the £250 mark (I know little about the quality of these, however). How big is the difference between 720p quadrupled and 1080p gaming then, really a night and day difference?

One other question I'm curious about is that Iv'e read that the inclusion of a HDMI port (and accompanying processing, etc.) adds some additional input lag to the monitor. Does simply using a HDMI to DVI adaptor as described above avoid this issue then?

The input lag people speak of is due to slow scaling from 1920x1080 to fit the 2560x1440 panel.
