Setup issues

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all.
So this is my setup. Ps3. Logitech z2300 speakers and a benq gl4230 monitor. I have it hooked up hdmi for picture from ps3 to monitor and there standard yellow white and red cable Thingy also plugged in for the sound. The speakers came with An adapter so I can use on systems.
Problem 1: sound is only coming out the left speaker. The speakers are absolutely fine. I noticed when I fiddled with the adapter only the white connector made a noise when I pulled it out
Problem 2: I cant get actual hd. I'm stuck on 572p or whatever it is which is ludacris. When I go to change the settings 572p is selected and greyed out and when I try the other resolutions then don't work. Any ideas? Thanks alot

Yellow/ White / Red Cable Thinghy??

That is your Video/ Audio RCA cables. They are circa 1980....

...and they suck for the PS3. I recommended going Digital, or HDMI.

As for the Logitech Z-2300? It looks a though that system is meant for desktop applications...trying to use it for your PS3 sound system isn't viable. Now, if you had the Logitech Z-5500, then you would be golden; it has an Digital Audio interface that will work with the PS3 flawlessly.

Now to the video:

For starters, what video adapter are you using? IIRC, the PS3 is compatible with four types of Playstation adapters:

Standard RCA (the yellow, white, and red thingy)
Component (Pr Pb Y or Red Green Blue)
Composite S-Video (Pin type)
HDMI (720p and higher resolutions)

The monitor you have has only VGA and DVI-D interfaces. If you are using a VGA Adapter, then its going to be hit/miss with those things, I would not recommend them. Besides, if you are not using component cables (the Pr PB Y or red green blue), then you will never see HD settings.

It would still require that Component to VGA, DVI-D adapter.

Unless you have a monitor that has HDMI, then you will not see resolution above 720p. I am running components (Pr Pb Y or Red Green Blue) from my PS3 to a 61" RCA TV... until I get a set that is HDMI, I know I won't see anything higher than 720.
