You'll need to connect an HDMI cable from the 2807 to the LCD to pass an HDMI signal input to the 2807.
Although not sure why you've never gotten it to work before??
What troubleshooting have you done? Have you reset the microprocessor?
Hmm..very interesting. Well, here is my setup:
Daytek (costco) 37" LCD 1080i max (yeah, I know, I cant even watch 1080p content anyway)
Oppo Digital up converting DVD player
Illico (Pace) HD cable box
Originally, I had hooked up the cable box and Oppo player via HDMI to the receiver (DVI->HDMI for the Oppo), then HDMI to the TV, but it never seemed to work properly. I'd have to turn on the TV before the receiver, then the cable box and then the Oppo...in some weird order, to get anything to work properly. Eventually I just said screw it and used component everywhere, and hooked up the Oppo directly to the HDMI in on my LCD.
I guess I will just buy the component cables for the PS3, but eventually, when I get a better 1080p LCD, I MUST use HDMI from the PS3 and amp to play 1080p? Is that correct?
