Help. My PS3 suddenly stopped working with my Samsung HLN617W. I had it connected via HDMI to DVI cable for 2 1/2 years, no problem. It just stopped working. Funny thing is my DirecTV box works fine wtih the same cable and so does my Panasonic DVD player. I bought a new HDMI cable and HDMI to DVI adapter but that didn't work. The PS3 will work with the Samsung via composite as well as component, however the component only works when plugged in to the lower quality (480p) and not the higher quality (720p/1080i). Sony tells me that I need to send in the unit, for $190 they'll fix it but here's the thing- it works HDMI to HDMI and on my computer monitor which is DVI. Just not on my Samsung DVI. Also, get this...I moved my Sony BDP S350Blu Ray player to my Samsung TV so I could at least watch movies and it does the same thing. It won't even let me choose HDMI, it's grayed out. I know the DVI is HDCP compliant. It says so in the manual plus it worked for 2 1/2 years. Could a DVI port on a TV go bad and only not work with one particular manufacturer? What the world is going on?

When using the Blu-ray player to the TV were you playing a DVD? If not what resolution were you sending to the TV? If 480p then I suspect that your TV can no longer process incoming HD resolutions.
Are you sending HD content to the TV in it's natvie 720p resolution?

You need to go into the video selection menu of the PS3 and select the video modes that the Samsung is capable of. Do not select 480i. selsect 480p, 720p and if you wish 1080i (optional). Since you are not using the DVI input the PS3 will not upscale DVDs but will play them at 480p. Your Samsung component (hi res input) can process 480p, 720p and 1080i.
