-------------------------------------------
Anyone know how to change the AV HDMI input? When I first got it, I hooked it up to a regular AV and it worked fine but than I switched to a HDTV and the input was not found so I kept the AV connected, connected the HDMI cable and went to switch it from AV to HDMI with both connected.

Is there a way to just have one connected and it automatically find the connection? Lets say if I disconnect it from my HDTV and connect it to a TV with AV?

Turn off your PS3. Now press and HOLD the 'On' button on the PS3 itself (not on the controller). It will beep and reset the connection type. I believe it will use HDMI if available, if not then it'll switch to AV.

I had this problem so what I did was plug both of them in to the console and the tv then go to the display settings and change it over to hdmi then switched the tv over to hdmi and it came up.

Hope that helps also....

HELLO GOOGLE PEOPLE!!!

Does anyone ever buy a brand new console, then get home to sit and read the whole instruction manual to find out if sometime in the future they will need to know some secret combination of buttons to change the output settings?
We shouldn't have to go searching for this stuff, on the xbox, there is a switch on the cable. What ever extra that cost to manufacture is definitely worth saving the stupid amount of hassle this has caused people.

No, but when they do need to know how to change the output settings, that's the first place they should consult.

If your PS3 is set to the wrong setting when you turn it on, it most likely won't show up on the screen. For example, if your PS3 is set to 1080p and your trying to play it on a 1080i TV.

Well i'd change it before switching teles, even though i always play 720p.

The easiest way is changing display settings in advance. Because even with the reset option, you still have to mess with the display settings
