ive just recently bought a gaming computer witha sweet 22" screen, but all my friends at school play ps3, so anyway i am going to save up for a ps3 but i dont want to have to get a new TV, now the interesting part
so i was going to buy a DVI-D cable splitter and have 1 DVI cable to pc and 1 DVI cable to ps3 with a DVI to HDMI adapter connected to it. I am hoping this would work for the picture but since my monitor doesnt have speakers i will need an adaptor for my logitech x-540 speakers to change the sound from those 3x 3.5mm male to whatever the ps3 uses, i already have 1 of these : http://reviews.pricegrabber.co.uk/cables-adapters/m/139...
does the ps3 use those white and red rca cables?
help would be great , thanks for reading
(ps. does any1 know where i can get a DVi-D cable splitter with a switch to go between whcih port used)
i think the ps3 default cable is the red/white/yellow combo, where red and white is for you audio and yellow for video. so to answer your question, yes it should have those cables. also, if i understood your intended setup, you're going to have to use both the HDMI output (for video), and the regular output(for audio). im uncertain if the ps3 will allow u this option, but if it does you're probably going to need to set these manually in the video/audio settings. lastly, if your monitor is 22", you're probably not going to get 1080p as that requires a 24" monitor
720p is perfectly fine, and since your monitor is probaly 1680x1050 resolution, you'll have no problem displaying it. just be aware that if u try to set your ps3 output to 1080p you would need a bigger monitor to actually view it
It should work fine. Although I do not have a ps3, I had an HDTV with no HDMI hooked up to an upscaling DVD player. I used a HDMI to DVI adapter to hook the DVD to my TV. I just used the red and white audio cables to send the audio from the DVD player to the TV. It worked fine, I did not have to adjust any setting for DVDs to play fine with audio.
