My direct tv receiver is hooked to the audio video input in the tv via a/v plugs.I bought a hdmi to dvi cable but it does not transfer sound. Does anyone know another wat to hook my ps3 to tv.Can I hook a audio splitter(y cable) to the input on the tv and get sound from receiver and ps3 thanks for any kind of help

    Maybe change your subject title to "at a loss" ? Or better yet, change it to "How do I hook up old plasma TV to ps3"

    Component is supported for the moment, although it may not be on the next model. I think you need to get an adapter from Sony. Audio can be analogue or optical digital.

    This is all explained very clearly in the manual.
    Read my blog here.

    You may want to look into a standalone HDMI->ComponentAnalog Adapter (HDCP-compliant, if possible). Could help in more ways than just the ps3.

    You do realize that playing games on a Plasma tv is very bad for the TV, i believes it come a close second to dropping TV from second story window. You will most likely start to experience severe ghosting.
