I recently got a PS3 and seeing as I did not have a HDTV, I decided to plug it into my pc monitor, which has a maximum resolution of 1680 X 1050.I used a DVI to DVI cable, with a DVI-HDMI adapter by SANWA Supply. The DVI end of the adapter is attached to one end of the cable and the HDMI end is attached to the PS3. The other remaining end of the cable was attached to the monitor's DVI port. There weren't any images at all and the screen said "No Video Input", followed shortly by "Going into Sleep Mode". I then moved my PS3 and the monitor to the living room and plugged the component cables into my old TV and left the DVI-HDMI adapter with its cable as it was. I booted up my PS3 again and changed the display settings via my old TV to HDMI. My monitor then gave a momentary white flicker, like it finally responded to the connection being made. Then the screen remained dark and after about 30ish seconds, the image returned to my old TV. I tried the same thing again but this time, the monitor just went back into sleep mode without bothering to respond at all. Can someone please help? Is the cable I'm using the problem? Or is it the adapter? Should I just buy a straight DVI-HDMI cable instead of bothering with all the adapter bullcrap? Also, my monitor's brand is Phillips and its model number is 220sw9fb. I checked the online manual (I lost the actual one a year ago) and it was listed as "DVI-D input and HDCP support". Thanks in advance!
