I have an older Sony TV, the model is KE-42XS910. It doesn't have an HDMI connector, so I bought an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable to see if I could make it work, it didn't. I also bought an AV component cable for the PS3, but that didn't work either.
According to the manual, "The DVI-HDTV input terminal is compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is not intended for use with personal computers... Use a DVI-D single link cable." So I sent an email to Sony E-Support asking about the problem, and sure enough, they told me the TV is not compatible with the PS3. I understand the TV is an older model, and the model predates the PS3 by a couple years, but I find it hard to believe that two Sony devices aren't compatible with each other, who would put a restriction on their own devices? Or why isn't there an official workaround to this problem?
So my question is, is it possible at all to circumvent this issue? Is there a device or adapter that I can plug in between to make the PS3 work on this older television? Am I to assume that a lot of people were assed out when the PS3 was released and had to buy a newer model television because this one wouldn't work with it?
