PS3 --> Asus MW221U
The answer to this question will depend on whether i get a ps3 or not...
I have an Asus MW221U 22" widescreen monitor which is compatible with dual dvi. Now obviously one DVI port is used for my graphics card, I was wondering if I could use the other to connect to my PS3. Now I know the PS3 uses HDMI connections and I also know there is a cable out there which has a HDMI connection on one end and a DVI on the other. But since HDMI carries both audio and visual and DVI only visual, where do I pick the audio up from?
OR.. is it possible to get a cable which goes from HDMI and splits into both DVI and component audio at the other end? (Since I'm running my speakers through my stereo), the only problem with the audio solution is that whenever I want to play my PS3 I have to go and swap the audio connections.
Thanks for your help guys.
I have just read on another forum that you can do it by just buying a DVI --> HDMI converter cable (This will work only if your monitor supports HDCP (Which mine does), but I'm still a bit clueless of where the audio gets picked up from? My monitor does have speakers on it, so maybe the audio signal will go straight into that? If so.. Then I'd have to run a 3.5mm --> x2 RCA to put the audio back into my stereo, but then I still have the problem of having to switch the audio cables everytime I want to play.
