So I am going off to university in the fall and I really don't feel like bringing my TV and monitor, so my solution to this was to use my PS3 on my monitor as well. I got a one of these for audio and one of these for video. The audio works fine, the problem is the HDMI to DVI connection.
When my PS3 is connected to my monitor through HDMI to DVI alone, it says "Cable not connected" however when I take that loose yellow composite wire(the red/white being used for audio) and I plug that into my TV(which doesn't have to be turned on or even plugged in), suddenly my monitor gets the signal from my PS3.
Another odd thing is that the yellow video wire doesn't have to plugged in the yellow plugin on my TV, it can be plugged in the audio or component plugins! I am super goddamn confused by this and can't seem to come with a solution. Anyone know what the hell is going on or can help me? Thanks.
