    Default PS3 using both Component cables and HDMI


    Does anyone know if you can use component cables for the video and run the sound thru the HDMI.

    I have a projector that only has the component video so thats what I hooked up for the video portion. I have a HDMI pass thru reciever and have the hdmi hooked up hoping to get the best sound possible. But neither are working. I have no picture and no sound.

    I have set the video and sound to each from the PS3 menu's and can't figure out what's wrong.

    ANyone else running this kind of config or know what might be wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    Good evening Dr. Beckett, I hope you journey wasn't too long. How is Jimmy?

    Don't really know but I'm running it with the HDMI to the display and the optical to the receiver(it doesn't have HDMI on it). I don't see why you wouldn't be able to do it since it gives you the option to set audio out separate from the video out put. All I can say is just give it a shot, but if you have an optical input on your receiver then that is the better way to go since the level is going to be higher and a lot cleaner signal than RCA inputs.
    To hell with it, it is all just an opinion....

    I seem to remember reading something about not being able to use the multi-out & hmdi at the same time, but I may be mistaken.

    Have you tried/can you runn A&V on hdmi to your receiver then component from that to your projector?

    Oherwise you may be restricted to using component & optical for the sound.

    If you didn't read my post you can use component and HDMI with the sound being directed through the optical output. I use to run it like that before I discovered that DVDs would not be upscaled through component connection and ONLY through HDMI. That being said I do believe that the optical connection is independent from the multi-out connection and HDMI. I'm not sure if you can use the multi-out audio and the HDMI for video but I do know that the PS3 will ask you to set up audio after selecting a different video input.

    No offense, just didn't think you actually saw the post. Didn't mean to come off like that, sorry.

    DVDs can be upscaled through component...just not retail DVDs. They must not be pressed (i.e. made in a factory) discs and have CSS removed.

    does anyone have an answer for this? I was looking into maybe upgrading my receiver to get the HDMI lossless audio, but run the components to my tv, since it has no hdmi...

    ......................... receiver because it receives all the audio and video signals; now why can't you use the HDMI cable from PS3 to the receiver, carrying both A&V, then have the receiver send the sound to the speakers and the video to the TV using component out .....

    Yes you can use any AV combination you want when hooking up the PS3, they are set-up independently, its really easy.

    Comp for video, HDMI for audio
    HDMI for video, optical for audio
    hdmi for video, rca(2 ch) for audio
    comp for video, optical for audio
