So I been using my Ps3 with the AV cables it came with since I got it, now I just got my HDMI cable and I'm trying to set it up but I'm having difficulties doing so. I thought it was a simple task by hooking the HDMI cable to my Ps3 and the other end to my HDtv, but it's a no go(BTW my AV cable is disconnected from my Ps3 at this point) so I hook my AV cables back on and switch my TV back to AV and it displays my Ps3 on my screen with the question saying HDMI has been detected do you want to switch settings to HDMI? So I click yes and it gives me a black screen for the longest time, I go back and forth on my TV settings switching the channels from AV to HDMI, HDMI to AV and nothing. I've read so many solutions and watched tutorial videos, tried those solutions and it's been a fail on all accounts. Somebody please tell me if I'm doing something wrong.
