I know that this is a wrong place for this but you guys helped me before so...

I have Hitachi 51SWX20B and just bought PS3. Hitachi has HDCP V1.0 DVI. When I used HDMI cable with DVI adapter - no picture. (there is a picture via provided composit cable). And yes I did change the setings. I did the same set up with my dell monitor and it is working fine. So this is not PS3 or cable. What is wrong please??

This sounds like a handshaking problem to me. Ensure that your adaptor has the ability to feed back the handshake information to the PS3 so they two units can talk.

You should still be able to upscale via component, provided the hitachi can cope with it.

Sorry, what I ment is that I was not able to run it via hdmi/dvi. Component is OK.
Frank do you know what is the best media server for ps3? I got winamp working but the quality is not the same as burning dvd for example. Maybe it is just a setting - have to check but it looks like it is just streaming in mp2 quality for music and video.

Hmmm, not sure. A friend of mine claims that tversity is excellent and it's free. Look at:

However, for ripping CDs and DVDs I really don't know what the best is. I've read up about a couple of brands but I forget their names...sorry!

As to the HDMI/DVI thing, you should be able to get it to work, provided nothing is wrong with the Hitachi's handshake. It should work.

Regards,
Frank.

Thank you, I will try this server.
On HDMI/DVI - I gave up. I think there is compability issue with hitachi dvi being 1.1

GOT IT!!!
DVI-D is the answer! Just read this at some forum went to the futureshop and bought single link dvi-d on one side, hdmi on the other and PS3 connected with my hitachi no problem at 1080i.
It was frustrating but finaly I found solution.

Sorry, 1080i or 1080p? Is the screen a 1080p screen or 'just' an HD Ready (720p/1080i) screen? If it is then set the PS3's output to auto and let it negotiate with the Hitachi for best results.

For 1080p you need a blu-ray disc of course.

Regards,
Frank.

1080i. So leave it at PS3 auto? I heard also that with older rear projectors - mine is about 5 years old Hitachi 51SWX20B 720p looks better then 1080i. Any comments?
