How do I set up my ps3 to hd?


I jus purchased a ps3 and would like to set it up for high definition. I am very technologically illiterate and need help. What exactly do I need to purchase to have my ps3 in hd? Is it the same cable as the red white and yellow but instead with the 5 different chords? Or is it a whole another thing? Please inform me! Thank you for your time

  1. Using hdmi cable plug it into the system and into your HDTV. Push the power button until you hear a single beep sound, then it will ask you something (bla bla HD something something I forgot) hit yes to using those settings and it should auto correct to your HDTV highest settings.

  2. You can use the cable with 5 different chords however the quality that you experience with a HDMI cable is far superior.

  3. Before you begin installation: Turn OFF the PS3 system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)

    Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outletTurn OFF and unplug the TV

    Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

    Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet.

    Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.

    Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.

    (((((((( Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.))))))))

    Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, “Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?”, select YES and press the button. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the DS3 controller to enable the controller first)

    The next screen will ask, “Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?” Select YES and press the button.

    On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, “Do you accept the setting?” You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.

    Select YES and press the button to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.
