    Connecting PS3 to LCD monitor

    My monitor only has a VGA connection but I have a HDMI-VGA adapter, is it as easy as that or do you need a special adapter of some kind? Is it even possible?

    Thank's, Cus

    HDMI is digital. VGA is analogue.
    Unless the "converter" has a fully blown DAC system (digital to analogue converter) then it won't work. Can you link the item and we can tell you more?

    edit - forget it anyway, the PS3 forces HDCP over HDMI, which an analogue signal can't carry. It wont work, sorry.

    Re: Connecting PS3 to LCD monitor

    May I suggest a simple solution to connect your PS3 to your lcd monitor through VGA?

    Look at this XCM 1080p Mega Cool VGA Box and let me know if this is what you were looking for.

    You may see this XCM mega cool thing working for a ps3 on an lcd monitor in this video here:
