From reading your post I think that an optical cable is the best you can do.

yea unless you have a receiver that has HDMI (like me) then optical is the best you can go. Unless you dont have a receiver then your screwed.
Once you go PS3 Slim, you never go back.

You need an HDMI cable to hook the PS3 to your TV. If your TV doesn't have HDMI then you have to go with the suggestions by the other guys.

The other cable or a receiver.

i have a feeling you actually talk like you type...

but why would u even wanna watch blu-ray on a 26 inch screen?.


u want surround sound, you need an HDMI receiver.
OR oyu can go striaght into your TV with an HDMI or component cables, then use an optical to go into your surround setup.

1080p > 720p > 1080i

interlaced scan shuold be obsolete by now.

when you get your home theater just run the hdmi/dvi cord from the ps3 to the tv then run the component or optical to the receiver. In the ps3 sound setting you can set it to component or optical and still have hdmi for the picture.

It shouldn't happen though, its ridiculous. Isn't that what this website/forum is for, for people that have questions. People come here for answers, not to get insulted.

yeah i agree, we have a really big problem with smug little jackasses postin' around here runnin' off at the mouth and just want to insult people because they cant afford a big ass HD-TV or asking questions how to set-up their hardwere, people like that need five across the eyes.

i wasn't trying to offend you, but why would u buy a ferrari when you can't drive past 40MPH?

in any case, TVs will see a drastic drop in price march or april, keep a look out for sales as the older models will be on sale to bring in the '09 models soon after february.

For that question, I pose a correction. Why buy a ferrari when the speed limit is 80?

80 MPH would be like having a 30something inch Vizio.

this guy has a 20something inch samsung w/ no HDMI inputs... u won't see any difference from a blu-ray to a DVD with proper upscaling.
