LG LCD 32-LZ-55 TV - No HDMI port for PS3

  PV1 17:14 29 Dec 2007

Hi, i'm a newbie but have been told by a friend that this forum can usually answer most technical questions.

I have had the above LG TV for approximately two years. LG have confirmed to me this morning that the TV is HD ready, but there is no HDMI port on the back.

My son has received a Playstation 3 for Christmas and in order to get High Definition playback (and for the Blu-Ray DVD?) you need to connect it up with a HDMI cable.

Is there an adaptor that I can use to get a High Def feed into my TV or will my TV not support this?

It has an RVG(?) port on the back and two SCART sockets.

Sorry for my obvious lack of knowledge, but would be grateful if somebody could point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

I believe that both the PS3 and the LG have a component connection which will deliver the HD signal click here

You will have to use the s video sockets as suggested by bremner. You can download a user guide for the TV from this site :-

The standard PS3 package does not come with a HDMI cable,at least when I got it few months ago.

Thanks for all your help. Managed to dash out and get the required lead from Comet this afternoon.

My Son and I are now enjoying Hi-Def gaming. Many thanks for your quick responses.
