Headphone - Hook Up Ps3 To Computer Monitor Via Hdmi


The situation is i've recently decided to hook up my ps3 to my computer monitor via hdmi, and i'm wondering how to best deal with the sound. As far as i see it, i have (possibly) two options here, at least that would accomplish what i desire. I'm hooked up to my pc at the moment via a pair of headphones, and i desire to still be able to receive my pc audio through these even while using the ps3. I was curious, however, if it is possible to receive output from both the ps3 (via the monitor's audio-out) and the pc at the same time (by using a splitter to plug the headphones into both my pc's sound card and the monitor's audio-out), or would that not function?

The other option i was thinking about was connecting my ps3's audio via optical to my pc's sound card, and hoping i'd be able to hear the audio from both the pc and ps3 that way. But i'm uncertain, too, if that would work, since i'm not sure if i'd have to switch between the pc and optical-in for sound or not. Would this possibility work, or no. ?

If neither is doable, i could always pick up some speakers and hook them up to my monitor's audio-out, but i'm curious first to see if i can get the sound from both ps3/monitor and my pc going to the same pair of headphones somehow (and simultaneously). =>

Edit: to mention hardware, or at least all that i think should matter, my sound card is unfortunately the original x-fi xtremegamer. Which means to use the second option (if it is possible), i'd need to use an optical adapter, i realize.

Connecting Ps3 To Laptop Via Hdmi To Hdmi Cable

Can i connect my ps3 to my laptop via an hdmi-hdmi cable? The other day i went to a store to see if they had an hdmi-dvi cable to connect my ps3 to my laptop (an hp compaq presario cq611) and asked for help to a man who was there he said that the hdmi-dvi cable would not work in my laptop and told me to try to connect via an hdmi-hdmi cable because this transmits everything (image, sound . ) I've tried but it didn't't work.

Dvi Or Hdmi To Connect Computer To Monitor

Should i use dvi or hdmi to connect my computer to my monitor? My screen resolution is 1920x1200 and my monitor has inputs for both dvi and hdmi. I currently have it hooked up using a dvi cable because i don't have an hdmi cable. Would i benefit in any way by switching to hdmi? Would i benefit by staying with dvi instead of switching to hdmi or is it the same both ways?

Kvm To Hook Keyboard / Monitor / Mouse Up To 2 Pc's

I know that a 2-port kvm can hook up a keyboard, monitor, and mouse to two computer, but what about audio? Here's what i want connected to my 2 computers:

1. Logitech mx700 usb mouse
2. Usb keyboard with onboard 2-port usb hub (a working usb hub not required)
3. One regular crt monitor
4. Klipsch 5. 1 promedia sound system

- A. (Connected from klipsch subwoofer to the klipsch digital decoder and from that to the audigy drive via optical cable when playing dvd's only for true dd/dts)
- B. (Connected from klipsch subwoofer to the audigy sound card via 3 cables when not playing dvd's)

Now i need the kvm to not only connect the first 3 things (which most/all kvm's do with no trouble anyways) but also connect my sound system via at least the 3 cables that connect to the sound card. I've seen one that will do regular 2. 0 speakers but not 5. 1. Anyone know how this would work? Btw, it needs to be pc and mac compatable.

Connect Ps3 Slim To Pc Monitor

How to connect a ps3 slim to a pc monitor with sound? How do i do this? I want to do this because i want to avoid using my old 20in sdtv and since i don't have the money for a hdtv for my basement, i figure i could just use a computer monitor i already own. It has vga and dvi with hdcp, however- what i can't figure out is how to get the sound from the ps3's hdmi cable to a pair of pc speakers. What do i have to buy to get my ps3 to display on a pc monitor, in hd quality, and get the sound to come through the pc speakers (unless there is a better way). (They are regular stereo speakers with a 3. 5mm input, i know that's poor quality but sound isn't what i'm concerned with).

Ubuntu Hdmi Monitor Problem

I installed the latest ubuntu operating system onto a second hard drive in my computer. I have a dual monitor setup, and when i boot ubuntu, my lg 2353 monitor goes into power save mode. My second monitor shows ubuntu, but only as a secondary screen. If i boot windows, both monitors work great. I am thinking that there is a problem with linux and hdmi. Ubuntu comes up fine if i unhook my hdmi monitor. I also contacted lg and they told me that the monitor is a plug and play, and there are no drivers for linux. Can anyone help me out?
