I have the PS3 hooked up to my new Samsung 4696D 46" LCD via HDMI. Originally it was via component. 1080p works great, as do the other resolutions.

Also, I'm not sure if this model TV is HDTV compatible, that being said, In set, what video output should I set it on?


Can anyone help me with this question?

Dude, no offense, but you're gonna have to grasp some basic video ideas.

First: composite is the worst video right now, S-video is the next worst, then component then DVI/HDMI. To answer your question, you want HDMI or component on your t.v.

So go to Sony's web site and find out which you have for your t.v. Hopefully, you are component and you can hook up your component connections. Otherwise, it is time for you to buy a new T.V.

Good Luck!

I am pissed.Got my ps3 today and set it up and experienced the 1080p HDMI problem that everyone else is having with the 42 inch westinghouse. My firmware is 1.16 and same thing when set to 1080p it flickers and sometimes freezes on a static screen. When it does work I get the snow effects on images.

I then tried to hook it up to DVI1 with a hdmi converter and it will not flicker but when going in and out of the game and the ps3 menu it will sometimes get stuck on a black screen with a static bar going across the middle. .

I then tried to hook it up to DVI2 then see a white lines pop up on the left and right sides of the screen. It's like the very edge of the borders have a tiny thin white static line. When I unplug the dvi its ok but once the connection is made and even though the system is not on the white edges come up. I also tried it with DVI from my cable box same problem on DVI2. DVI1 is fine though.

Can anyone confirm the DVI 2 issue also? I am going to call Westing house tomorrow again. I called 3 months ago to report the lockup issue the TV has and they said would get back to me on updating the firmware. Anyone have suggestions on things to say to them to speed things up?

I finally had time to crack open my box and I'm using the westy 37in display. It doesn't seem to like my television but thanx to the posts here I am able to get it working. The guy from Sony support told me to get a hdmi cable that is more compliant with hdmi 1.3 but after connecting it to my front projector it worked fine. This is really frustrating because they should test these things more before release. Sony should learn from Microsoft's mistakes. Still after about five minutes you get sound and video. I believe it has alot to do with the auto sync feature built into the westy. I will test my theory and let you guys and gals know how it turned out.

See my comment at #148, you're having exactly the same problem as mine and we have the same firmware version for westy 42in. Quick solution is whenever you see a static line across the screen, turn the monitor off then on, it will back to normal. I'm not sure which side is causing the problem though, Sony or Westy?
post #158 of 1373
Are you also having issues with DVI 2 where there are static thin lines on the left and right sides?

BD supporters, here's a petition to benefit us all.

Let's ask neutral studios to re-encode separately for 50 GB BD titles instead of using the HD encode. The PQ improvement should be noticable.

Look, I have component input on this TV....the sony website has no "specs" on the screens maximum output...I was under the impression that composite max out at 480i and component starts at 480i....what setting would i put the outut at in the PS3 menu?
post #161 of 1373
idk about you guys, but i have found that when i load up COD3 or the RR7 demo, it doesnt have those sync issues where it blinks, it works fine, cod is 720p, and rr7 is a full 1080p game, but nba, and resistance both blink and nba is a 1080p game also.....anyone else have this samething happen?
post #162 of 1373
Big Kahana,
The PS3 can attempt to auto-detect, but you really need to know the specs.
Rule of thumb is to use the highest quality connection your display has.

1. HDMI / DVI
2. Component
3. S-Video
4. Composite

You will not get a HD image if you can only do Composite or S-Video.
post #163 of 1373
BIG KAHANA: you don't have an HD TV so the best connection you can go with is s-video, in my opinion.

I just called IAI directly after being given the # from westinghouse and they had told me westing only sent them 25 kits to upgrade all the LCD tvs in the entire US and also the first batch of Kits sent to them were bad. I should get a call soon per Thad from IAI. Hopefully the firmware upgrade will fix some of the issues.

I dont know why the specs dont include the componant (YPbPr) inputs that ared present in the back of the tv....I ordered component cables and will use those with an SD signal coming from the PS3..hopefully it will autodetect and output the best signal..

i don't mean to rain on your parade buddy but i've checked 4 different sites now and all of them say it's an SD TV, not HD.

could it be your looking at the composite inputs?

For all the NON-Believers out there: KV-32FS13 INPUT PICS

When I bought this TV in late 2001, it was I believe to be called "HDTV ready" the manual says nothing on the image capabilities and altogether never metions the componant inputs? that being said...if it has them...will I be able to get an HD signal? at least a 720p...? Any opinions anyone

No, that TV is a standard definition model and will not display anything higher than 480i. There are plenty of SDTVs available with component inputs, so it's not as if that is a rare feature. You were right to order those component cables, however, as even an SDTV sees a massive boost in image quality when using component instead of composite.

no way, KAHANA, sorry. i recommend s-video over component or composite, by the way. (for an SD TV)

Why exactly? It's not as if there is a large price gap (or even any price gap at all).

it has nothing to do with money, dark1x.

s-video is the highest quality SD connection out there.

component is made for much higher resolutions and doesn't give a nice crisp picture like s-video does for SD viewing.

Does everyone agree with this opinion? It would be nice to have my PS3 hooked up to my reciever and than go to my tv because it would cut out the second remote issue that has popped up since my new acquisition.
post #173 of 1373
Hah, no that's complete crap.

Component is the highest quality connection and has benefits even for standard def.

I am running optical out for the sound to my Yamaha Z9 receiver - and so far has played the appropriate sound. On XMen 3, the DTS HD is coverted to DTS ES 6.1!

Pretty cool.

While I wouldn't have phrased it that way, I agree - go component if possible on SD. Go HDMI if possible on HD.

buddy, find out what you're talking about before you give someone else advice, please.

where are you getting your info from, best buy?

BIG KAHANA: do yourself a favor and try both component and s-video and chose for yourself.

Please tell me you are you confusing comPOSITE with comPONENT or something.

Component (Y/Cr/Cb) is quite superior to S-video (Y/C), even for standard-def. This is fact. It is not debateable.
post #179 of 1373
I figured this was the best area to post this..so here it goes.

I recently purchased an HDMI capable capture card which supports HD resolutions. I did this primarily for capturing recordings of High Definition Video Games off the PS3 for my site. Unfortunately now that I've received my PS3 I have found that HDCP is enabled even when playing games. I was under the impression it was only to be used on Blu-ray movies. Needless to say this really really sucks. I've blown a lot of money on this and I really would appreciate it if someone here could recommend a work around for this.

I realize I could use component via a component>hdmi adapter however I'd like to use the PS3's native HDMI out as I could have bought a component capture card for far less.

Is there perhaps a box which will strip the HDCP signal? As far as I can see this is the only work around I can find.

did you take the time to look at his TV, walk?

he could use component but he'd have to turn his settings way down or he'd have color bleeding.

not debatable my arse.
