Just purchased a Samsung LN40A550. Could use some help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, this is my first time posting. I really don't know where to post this so I decided to drop it off here. If I need to move it or something, just say so and I'll delete/repost. I've been poking around these forums looking up various information while trying to decide on my new TV. I've tried using the search function to answer my own questions but I'm coming up rather short. Any and all help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I recently pulled the trigger on ordering a Samsung LN40A550, and now I'm trying to figure out all the cables I'll be needing. I've been browsing the monoprice site trying to figure it out on my own but I'm running into some snags. Here's a rundown of the setup I'll have in the room.

I understand how to set the following up together...
  • Samsung LN40A550
  • Sony Playstation 3

I get a little confused about how I integrate those with...
  • Desktop PC
  • Logitech Z-5500 Sound System

I know I need to purchase an HDMI cable for the PS3>TV. As well as a DVI>HDMI cable to connect my PC to the TV so I can use it as a second monitor. So aside from being lost on which cable I should be grabbing from monoprice, I also don't know how to go about setting up the Z-5500 to work with the TV while using the PS3. I've read about using the Optical cable on the back of the Z-5500 control device, but I'm not sure if that's the best way.

If anyone could give me some advice on what to purchase and how to setup the 4 devices to work well with each other, I'd be grateful.

Well you pretty much answered your questions.

Any HDMI cable will do for the PS3.
A DVI to HDMI connector will do as well.
