PS3 with HDMI to VGA converter

Greetings,

first of all i would like to note what i tried and what i have.

I've purchased this converter from eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-TO-VGA-VIDEO-AUDIO-For-PS3-XBOX-DVD-HDTV-Projector-Monitor-LCD-BLU-RAY-AC87-/200852575932?pt=US_Video_Cables_Adapters&hash=item2ec3bf16bc
( It's working when i plugged it in on PC HDMI out to any VGA Input Monitor/TV, also on Laptop HDMI to any VGA Input Monitor/TV )

I've ViewSonic VA2431wma, it's Full HD with only VGA input.
ViewSonic VA1912a-LED, it also hes only VGA input, both of these are in my room.
Sony Bravia KDL-37BX401 ( PS3 works here with hdmi cable, but TV is in living room, with converter it gives unsupported signal )

So i want PS3 to work on any of those 2 Monitors, i've tried restarting it to defaults, selecting all outputs, 1080p/i, 720p, no luck, always unsupported signal from ps3 ( on tv vga ), on monitors i get no signal than black screen, than no signal again, than black screen, like that 5 times, than they go to stand by, than it starts again same process, always. Someone has experience with this?

  1. I said i tried that.
  2. Could you problem be a lack of HDCP?

    I do not think the PS3 likes to see any device without HDCP in fact Sony even requires it to play games.
  3. This converter has HDCP. ;)

    Because of this no signal black screen, it looks to me that it's lacking power, but i don't have 3.5mm 5v DC :(
  4. Feel like hacking up a usb cable and some old headphones or dollar store extension cable(if you mean 3.5mm like headphone cable)? USB gives 5 volts :). Make the PS3 feed its own converter.

    If it DOES have HDCP, I want :)
  5. yeah it's female 3.5mm :) not male. that's good idea, taking 5v usb power, i'll take old nokia 3.5mm :)

    It says it's compatible with HDCP

    · Support:Accord with HDMI1.3 agreement,compatible HDCP agreement.
  6. You may want to contact the seller just to confirm that the tip is +

    also plug the cable in before the usb because 3.5mm cables tend to short when plugging(due to the design of such plugs).

    last off, remember to tape off the 2 data cables to keep them from touching each other or the power cables.
  7. Yeah i know that, did before, but not for 3.5mm plug.
    I found one 5v 1.2A Adapter but plug is too wide for converter. I'll report back in few hours. ;)
  8. I gotta report back, it's not DC, as far as i can tell.
    I took 5V 1.2A DC from DLinks Switch soldered 3.5mm plug along with dlinks plug, i made sure it works. ;)
    Plugged it in Converter, still same. Not working.

    Conclusion:
    If you stumble upon this Converter, it's working perfectly for any other source except PS3, i've tried Laptop HDMI to any device, works perfectly, i tried DVB-T2 tuner with hdmi output on any device works perfectly, from my pc ATI HDMI everything works. But PS3, nop.
  9. Out of curiosity, Can you play a bluray or run a bluray adviser on the pc to ensure HDCP is actually working?
