i just hooked up my 42 inch flat screen with my first hdmi cable and i get sound but no picture. everything works fine when i use the av cables provided with the ps3 but the hdmi doesn't work. i changed the input to hdmi1 and even tried using the three other hdmi ports but still nothing. please help. thank you. the hdmi cable is a .9 and not a 1.3. is this my problem
could be the problem, I'm no HDMI expert though. Speaking of which, why on earth would you use .9 instead of 1.3 on a beautiful 42'' TV? You're losing serious picture quality doing that. If it's the price you're worried about, try buying a cable from monoprice.com. I've bought two HDMI cables and a wallmount from them, without any problems whatsoever. They're great to do business with and they're even reccomended by Cnet.com. You can also try Amazon Basics (from amazon.com) branded HDMI cables which are also dirt cheap. When shopping for home theatre basics, the only thing I buy from Best Buy is the TV. I buy everything else online.
With that said, You might want to try reversing the cable so that the end you have pluged into the TV is plugged into the TV and vice-versa. Sometimes this solves the problem.
lol yea he gaming by now but i got hdmi cables off Amazon pretty cheap and wrk perfect.
yea, no need to spend $30+ on a Monster cable. the cheap stuff works just as good, if not better. it probably costs Monster pennies to make the cables too.
