A little complex this one. I'm usually a an expert with Denon amps, but this has got me stumped and maybe better answered in the PS3 forum. But here goes.. My A1XVA amp is unable to do analogue to HDMI conversion from my new PS3. I know the analogue to HDMI circuit works because my DVD Recorder is connected via component and the amp happily sends it via HDMI to my projector. I've also checked that the video up conversion is switched on for the relevant input. So why can't it do the conversion with the PS3? I do have the PS3 connected with HDMI aswell, but only for audio to ensure I'm getting HiDef audio from Blu-Ray discs. The reason I'm using component video is because my Plasma screen doesn't have an HDMI input. By switching on the analogue to HDMI conversion in the amp, I'm usually able to feed the Plasma component, AND the projector HDMI.... but not it seams with the PS3. ARghh! If the amp could do HDMI > Component downconversion I'd use HDMI for video too, but since it can't I have to use component. NB... I know its not posible to get HDMI and component video from the PS3 at the same time (stupid, but you can't), but that's not really the problem. I just want to connect the PS3 to the amp with Component video / HDMI Audio, and leave the amp to upconvert the component video to the HDMI ouput. Is this possible? If not, why not... what's so special about the PS3?
