I have been having a lot of trouble connecting my PS3 to my monitor. For the specifics on the monitor you can check out the specs here, but the basis is that is only has a VGA connection and there is no direct connection from the PS3 to a VGA display. What I have done so far is buy a couple converters and wires to go from HDMI to DVI-D and then to VGA. Unfortunately this does not work. Both the system and monitor acknowledge that something is connected but either the system cannot send the signal or the monitor cannot display the signal.



So now I'm back to the drawing board. I have found a converter that sounds like it is made specifically for this problem, HDFury, but I don't want to buy anything until I am 100% certain it will work. From what it sounds like, I will be able to connect a cord I already have that has HDMI on one end and DVI-D on the other, connect HDFury to that and then connect the VGA cable to that and the monitor and it will be a done deal. I realize this will not do audio for me but I have already solved that through the analog plugs.

Best deal I could find is here http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item1c0dab55b1
If I find anything else of interest I will let you know.

A slightly less expensive way of hooking things up here http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item27b272a33f

That second one looks good, what does it connect to on the system? The composite cables?
