Default Help hooking up my PS3...

My friend has an Optoma EP721 DLP Projector. We hooked my PS3 up through DVI-HDMI cord(DVI in the projector, HDMI to PS3). It accepts a 1080i signal, and the games play great, but we can't get the speakers to work. Also, Games look fine on the PS3, but Blu-rays look purple. I just hope someone can help me.

Your kind of fighting a couple of negatives with that projector.

First is it isn't a HD home theater projector, it is more geared towards being a business projector.

It has a 4:3 native aspect ratio so it isn't designed for widescreen movies. It will work but you will have larger bars at top and bottom of the picture just like you would on an older 4:3 TV.

The biggest drawback is it is only a 800x600 resolution so even though it will accept a 1080i signal it can't display it. Even though you are sending it a 1080i signal it is downconverting it to 480p to display.

Dont know about the color of Blu Ray movies. I guess it could be a protection of some sorts but I am not sure.

But if you want sound you should additionally use your component cables or an optical cable to some other device and set it from your PS3 settings to output to that device the audio. HDMI->DVI can not send sound.
