PS3 connection

hughrimmer -- Mon, 11/10/2008 - 07:27

I've recently picked up an XGA projector that I want to use with my PS3, but am not sure what sort of connection is going to give me the best quality or best resolution.

The projector has got a

- 15-pin VGA
- S-video
- Composite video input

and the PS3 has got, well, the usual connectors (HDMI and the Sony MultiAV I believe they are).

Can anyone help me with what connection is going to look best?

In principle, S-Video is better than composite. I don't think there is a simple way to use VGA.

HI I've just took the simple route and connected my PS3 to a hd Projector which can be picked up pretty cheap now , plus you have the benefit of a purely digital connection. Games and dvd's plus blueray look amazing !!!.

 Look up "HDFury" on Google.  It will allow you to connect the PS3's HDMI to a VGA port.

I have my PS3 hooked up to my HD projector using HDMI, and then have the audio connected to my surround sound using an optical cable.
