View Full Version : ps3 hdmi switcher problems...
13-05-2007, 04:08 AM
I am trying to connect my ps3 to my hdtv which only has 1 hdmi socket which is currently occupied by my V+box, using a 3 hdmi switcher box (info on switcher box here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-Port-HDMI-Sw...QQcmdZViewItem
the problem is that im getting no picture from my ps3 when its connected to the switcher, it works fine if i plug it via the hdmi straight into the telly, but nowt when in switcher the V+box works fine through the switcher though. i bought it so i wouldn't have to keep swapping cables when i wanted to use my ps3 but it looks like i spent the money for nothing! any ideas as to why its doing this?

The Link isn't working, so can't check the specs of the box. HDMI switch boxes will work with the PS3, but the quality of the box will have an impact, you also need to ensure it fully supports HDCP and that your cables are reasonable quality and not to long.
I have had issues with HDMI switches, a QED one I purchased didn't work with SKY HD (lots of picture quality issues), the Gefen 4 to 2 I have now works very well.
