Hey guys my friend bought the ps3 on black friday with the 10 movies. He also bought planet earth. Well he brought it over to my house to play it. Unfortunately I had to buy the hdmi to dvi wire because my hdtv only had dvi input. Well I also had to buy them compenents cable red blue and green for the sound. I went to return it though because Im not sure if I buy a stand alone player can I use that line as well, or it require me to buy a new one? Can you guys give me some advice. Im borrowing his ps3 for this weekend to show my mom planet earth. Try to convince her to get me a blu ray player. I already have hd dvd so I want to buy blu ray to get more movies.

The HDMI to DVI cable works with any device that has a HDMI output.
However PS3's component cable only works with PS3 and PS2.
Curious, why did you buy component cable to get audio? If you want Stereo RCA output, the standard AV cable that comes with PS3 is good enough for doing that.
My suggestion is to use HDMI-to-DVI cable for picture (which works on any standalone or PS3) and if you're getting a standalone, use multi-channel output for audio output (since optical cannot pass 5.1 channel PCM).

I didnt know we can use the wire that came along with the ps3 for sound. So im all set? I just need the hdmi to dvi and the other red white and yellow will give me sound.

You'll just use the red and white cable connectors for sound. The yellow is for video, but you won't use that because you'll be getting the DVI.

XA2 + PS3 = Priceless
