Ps3 To Monitor Through My Rgb To Hdmi

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I recently purchased a hdmi to DVI cable, i would like to be able to play my ps3 through my monitor as my family still live in the stone age and havent yet bought a hd tv.

Any help would be much appreciated
Thank You
Charlie

You can go HDMI to DVI but not HDMI to VGA.

Does the monitor just stay blank or does it give you any sort of message prior (out of range, monitor going to sleep, etc)?

One thing you can try to do if you've had your PS3 connected through a different kind of connection, lets say A/V to your old TV, is to hold down the power button when you start it. Hold it down for about 5 seconds until it beeps (twice I think) and this should reset your video settings and it should switch to your HDMI port.

it doesnt show a message but turns on from sleep mode when i turn my ps3 on which is why its even more annoying, and i tryed holding down the button but it does the same thing, my ps3 detects there is a hdmi connected as it asks me if i want to change it. Still doesnt work

The DVI on your monitor has to be HDCP enabled as far as I know.
There was a product called the Firefury HD or something similar
for exactly this situation.

It was HDFury and you should only need HDCP to play Blurays at full res.

Try unplugging it from the back for a few mins. That's what I did when my PS3 randomly wouldn't output to my monitor, even with the display reset trick..
