I recently purchased a PS3 and hooked it up directly to a Panasonic plasma 720p HDTV via HDMI cable and had no issues with setting it up. I decided that I wanted to move the PS3 to my basement, where I have an older Sony projection 720p HDTV. I want to run it through my Denon 2112ci (via HDMI) and to my TV (also via HDMI).
I set everything up last night and the OSD of the Denon can be seen/heard on my TV as well as my Wii, which I also hooked up (Component video in to the AVR, HDMI out to the TV). When I powered up the PS3, the picture was jumbled with black, green and red lines and a message on the TV said something like format not supported, check device settings: I think this message was coming from my TV.
I tried to hook up the PS3 directly to the TV via HDMI, bypassing the AVR and it was a blank screen. I tried to hook up the PS3 directly to my TV via component video (using a cable I used to use with my PS2) and it was a blank screen.
I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not, but the HDMI cable from the PS3 to the AVR is a new, high-speed, 3D ready cable and the HDMI cable from the AVR to the TV is an older cable (around 3 years old).
What I'd like to do is see something on the screen and adjust the PS3 settings to Case 4 as described in the 2nd post in this thread, but I can't get an image on the screen. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I can/should do?
