Hey, I'm having a little difficulty setting up my PS3 to my LCD monitor (Staples SP7106) via HDMI to DVI. I have the 60GB PS3 running firmware 4.00 and currently I have it plugged into my old flat screen CRT via component cables. I want to hook it into my monitor which is 1280x1024 so I can play my games in 720p, however if I use a HDMI to DVI cable, the monitor only says "720x480 Mode not Supported" and I obviously can't switch the PS3 settings to 720P while blind... I know my monitor DOES support 1280x720.
Can someone please step me through setting the PS3 to HDMI then ONLY selecting 720P from the resolution list? Any video I found on youtube doesnt really show it. I need it to be as exact as possible, since Im doing this blind. Thanks!
How do you know your monitor supports 1280x720? Usually if a monitor's top resolution is 1280x1024, it is a 4:3 aspect ratio monitor that doesn't do widescreen resolutions like 480p and 720p. If that's the case, then you are stuck until you get a recent widescreen monitor with HDMI, or DVI + HDCP ports.
I know the monitor is capable with 1280x720 because I have tried using that resolution with my PC and this monitor using the same HDMI to DVI cable. I'm assuming since my monitor says "720x480 Not Supported" that 480P is out of the question. And yes, the monitor is 5:4 ratio, though when running 1280x720, the screen is 16:9 with black bars on the top and bottom, which is acceptable to me. Also, can someone at the least, please step me through setting it up with 720P on HDMI blind, rather than arguing if my monitor will work with it. If it doesnt work when correctly done when blind, THEN I will worry if the monitor truely isnt up to the task.
Like it matters. How hard is it for someone to take <2 minutes and document how to set up 720P only in HDMI blind and post it?
Since no one here was nice enough to step me through enabling 720p in HDMI while blind, I went out and bought a little 19" HDTV instead. Thanks a lot. Guess I'll never bother posting to these forums again. :/

Because there is a Support/Knowledge section where you can find out how to reset the video settings.......
