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.

Connecting Dell Laptop To Hdtv Using Hdmi Port

I have a new dell studio 15 laptop. It has a hdmi port in it. We just have purchased a new lcd tv from sony. It is high-definition tv. Now i have two queries. 1) does all hdmi cables are universal standards ones means standard port at laptops' end but what abt at the tvs end. Is port(at tv's end) same for all tvs or varies from tv brands to brands ?

2) if i play movies after connecting hd tv with laptop using hdmi, will i get the extreme high quality picture like both high-definition and blue-ray picture qualities. If not, then does i need some softwares to be installed on my laptop to get blue-ray picture quality.

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.

Hd 2600 Xt And Connecting Hdmi Lcd Monitor

I have a hp w2207h lcd monitor with hdmi input. When using a dvi->hdmi converter and hdmi cable the catalyst driver claims that the monitor is a hdtv and only 720p, 1080p etc. Modes are available. When forcing 1680x1050 60 hz the monitor shuts down. Other 1680x1050 lcd works fine. The hp w2207h also works fine with nvidia quadro 110 in xp. I suspect vista is too eager to detect hdtvs here ?

Any suggestions?

Built In Hdmi Or Dvi - Hdmi Adapter

Does it matter? I have a biostar matx 939 board with 3000+ venice with 7800gt and 1 gig of ram. I'm wanting to use this pc as a very light game machine (civ 4: colonization and other strategy, probably never fps cause i hate playing from my couch) and all purpose computer in the living room. I'm looking at a 4830 or so, maybe 4670 depending on price. Want to spend less than $80 - $90 shipped. I need the card to output sound. I want to run a single cable from the pc to my 47" 1080p tv which outputs sound via optical to a surround sound receiver. Will a card with no native hdmi out output sound, making the adapter worthless? Or?

I don't see any free shipping on 48xx cards with an hdmi port built in from newegg. Needs:

Play sound through hdmi
Light gaming
Eventually be able to play bluray discs (will eventually get a blu ray drive) (cpu will probably need upgraded though?)
$80-$90 shipped

Optical Audio Multi Port And Hdmi

I currently have an xbox 360, a ps3 and a pc that all have optical audio outputs. However, my logitech z5500's control unit only has one optical audio input. Is there such a thing as a multiple optical audio unit that would support all three devices to plug into one receiver?

Also, can you guys recommend a good multi hdmi unit as well? Nothing too expensive, looking in the $50 range, if possible.

Screen Getting Cut Off When Connecting To Tv With Hdmi

Screen getting cut off when connecting to tv with hdmi? Alright so i just got a new hdtv (a friend gave it to me, so im not sure of the exact size, but it's pretty big). I wanted to hook my laptop up to it with an hdmi cord, but when i did, it displayed really nice but each side was cut off a bit, top, bottom, left and right. Not a whole lot but enough that the top of the windows (minimize maximize exit)< where covered. And around half the start bar. I tried changing the resolutions but nothing worked.

No Sound After Connecting Hdmi Cable From Pc To Tv

I connected a new hdmi cable from my pc to my lg lcd tv. I have no sounds?

Answer:- there are several possibilities. First, go to the sound control panel and make sure there is an hdmi audio playback device active. If not, you'll need to download one that supports your video card. Dvi to hdmi converters do not provide audio, in case that's what you're using. Video only. Of course, there are always hardware failures possible, but check the configuration first.

Do I Need To Buy An Adapter For Hdmi Cable To Plug Into Dvi Port?

I bought a cable to connect my ps3 to my desktop monitor. It is a hdmi to dvi cable. My monitor has a dvi and d-sub port. Even though the cable i got says it is hdmi to dvi it will only connect to the d-sub port (the d-sub is smaller and blue and the hdmi is larger and white). Do i need to buy an adapter to allow the hdmi cable to plug into the dvi port or am i doing something else wrong entirely. When i turn on the ps3 nothing comes up. I tried holding the on button to reset the ps3 display settings to hdmi but nothing happened. I suspect i need to buy the adapter but i wanted to confirm before i go buy it. My monitor is a hanns g hi221d. I'm pretty sure my monitor should be compatible but i'm sure someone knows alot better than me.

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?

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?

Convert Dvi To Hdmi For Samsung Monitor

How to convert dvi to hdmi for a samsung monitor? I am gonna buy a samsung 24" full hd monitor which has a dvi port but not a hdmi. Sometimes i am gonna use my home-theater to connect to this monitor but the problem is that my home-theater has a hdmi conn only and no dvi conn. I asked the dealer , he said that a converter is available , what will the converter do, will it connect the dvi to hdmi, will there be quality loss?

Will this conversion have effect on the full hd 1080p movies i will watch? I have also heard that dvi does not carry sound, so then where will the sound go after conversion and lastly what all effects will this conversion make, and for how much is this converter available and which brand is good.
