Tips and warnings

  • For the best picture, it is recommended that you use the HDMI cable in order to take advantage of the PS3's 1080p capabilities; if your TV supports them.
  • If your PS3 does not automatically display, you may need to reset the video settings. To do this, turn the console off. Then, turn it back on, holding the power button for at least five seconds. The video settings will be reset to standard resolution.
  • If you have a home theatre system, you can output the audio through an optical cable regardless of the type of video cables you are using.
