Displaying PS3 over vga on HDTV

5 replies 66 views Edited Dec 4, 2012

So I have a sony bravia that has a VGA input on the back for pc usage or something. Will it look good if i buy a hdmi-vga cable for the ps3 and connect it to the hdtv . Ive never done that and since it would be a PC connection im guessing the games will look like they look on PC or better than regualr definition. They cables are cheap so would this work? will the games look good?

I don't think its possible..... The PS3 has HDCP signal through HDMI and unless the TV supports HDCP through VGA you're SOL as you'll be looking at a blank screen.

 

What model of TV is it? Does it not have HDMI?

I don't know if it would work but I can speak for myself I have vga to ps3 cables and have it connected to a computer monitor.

 It works BUT I have to adjust the picture and I can't fully center the picture its slightly to the left to much and my monitor keeps refreshing it's self to try and center the picture. ( really annoying )  hdmi cables are the best way to go ( if possble)

 

Hope this helps
