    Anybody who has (or knows for sure) a PS3, could you please tell me what the AV lead is like? Has it got a HDMI connector for the TV end?

    I ask as I have a job coming up which involves mounting a Plasma TV and all associated leads. Included in that is going to be a lead for a future PS3.
    If its HDMI will I just need a HDMI female to male to extend the PS3's AV cable?

    The PS3 does have a normal HDMI connector and so any HDMI cable can be used.
    For componant or any other output, the PS3 uses the AV multi out, so only cables specificly made for the PS3 will work

    Hope this is right, but I have a PS3 and you can just use a standerd HDMI cable. Like the one for a sky HD box or DVD player. As for the Playstation AV cable I am using my old Playstation 2 component cable. I hope this helps you.

    Many thanks for such a quick reply.

    So I assume a 3 metre female to male HDMI cable should have things covered?

    [EDIT] Have I got the wrong end of the stick? Has the PS3 actually got a HDMI socket?
    If so then a 3 metre male to male cable?

    Yes the PS3 has an HDMI output just like you will find on an upscaling DVD player or Sky HD Box.

    PS2 leads work just fine too. I purchased a £7.50 component lead from GAME for the PS2 - it works a treat on the PS3
