Going HDMI

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just got a PS3 and have been playing with the red/yellow/white video input cables. I'm planning on upgrading to HDMI. Does this cable look like the right one for me?

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240&cs_id=1024004&p_id=4966&seq=1&format=2

or does a different one from this list look better?

http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240

Also, the only PS3 game I have is GT5. Are there any PS3 console settings or GT5 in-game settings I have to/should change when I go HDMI?

Thanks.

All monoprice's HDMI cables are great. If you like the look of the jacketing on that cable, and 5ft is long enough, go for it.

You shouldn't have to change any settings, usually the PS3 will autodetect what res your TV can run.

What exactly am I looking for in an HDMI cable because I'd like to get one from that website without the braided sleeving. I heard it makes the cable stiff. If someone could pick out the correct cable without sleeving from that list I posted, that would help a bunch.

Also, how will I know when/if it changes my settings for me?

Thanks.

If you just want a normal cable without any sleeving, here you go:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240&cs_id=1024008&p_id=3992&seq=1&format=2

6ft was only like 10 cents more so I linked that instead of 5.

Get what ever you can afford IMO its not really worth to spend top dollar on a HDMI cable and the ps3 will tell you what res it running....

this is the same as braided plus it has ferrite cores

That's perfect, thanks for the help.

The image will be big and fuzzy just like it is now if the PS3 doesn't update your settings. You'll be able to tell tongue.gif.
