    This is so frustrating..Purchased a PS3 a few weeks ago and to receive the full effects of the HD experience I recently bought a HD Ready TV (Samsung LE26R74BD). Connected up the HDMI cable to the HDMI socket on both the PS3 and TV. However when I go to HDMI mode I get a blank screen although I have the sound..What am I doing wrong? Is there some setting on either the TV or PS3 I have to change? There seems to be no options on either menu and I'm starting to pull my har out.. SCART works ok for both picture and sound....

    Can anyone guide me ??

    connect with av scart or component to tv first then in ps3 go to display settings and set it to hdmi out, follow the prompts for output resolution (e.g 720p, 1080i, 1080p). then connect hdmi to tv and go to hdmi channel and you should have display.

    When I go onto video output settings for HDMI on the PS3 is asks me to "press the x button and the screen will be displayed based on this setting. If the setting is not correct the screen will go blank temporarily. Then after 30 seconds the system will go back to the previous screen.." Which it promptly does. There doesnt seem to be any option where I can alter the HDMI settings..

    Make sure the HDMI cable is the only cable connected from the TV to the PS3 then try resetting the PS3 (hold the power button down for 5 seconds) it should then auto detect properly.

    This may be a stupid question (not familiar with that TV) but is the TV 1080p compatible?

    It may only support 720p or even lower resolutions.

    Make sure it supports 1080p by looking at the manual. :)

    The "HD Ready" logo seems to mean very little as there are several standards of "HD"

    A good example would be my old plasma which did support 720p and 1080i but not 1080p, so when i tried a 1080p product like the PS3 it didnt work and gave me a blank screen. It did work at 1080i though.

    My new PJ is propper 1080p and it works well with the PS3.

    Dont know your TV but on my toshiba during those 30 secs. you have to select the HDMI input on the TV then you should be able to accept the settings. After which it should auto detect.
