PS3 hooked up to an old Rear Projection HDTV via DVI
I quickly did some research on the TV model and found out that the TV is around 8 years old, which means that it's only 720p/1080i and doesn't have an HDMI port. Originally I had planned to hook my PS3 down there and use the area for video games, etc.. the problem is that I'm pretty picky on video quality and won't hook up my PS3 via RCA plugs. The TV does have a DVI port, so I'm wondering if it's possible to hook up my PS3 using a mix of an HDMI to DVI cable and the audio from RCA plugs that came with the system. I also think that I might be able to use the HDMI to the DVI on the back of the TV and then hook up the optical on the back of the PS3 to a surround sound receiver, the problem is of course that I don't have a spare surround sound receiver sitting around.
Ultimately I'd love to just put it up on craigslist for cash/carry -- but I don't think anybody is really going to pay for an 8 year old 720p 180lb+ tv with no hdmi ports.. I was originally expecting them to take that TV with them and was planning on putting my 50" plasma down there and buying a smaller 42" TV for upstairs, but my wife probably wouldnt be very happy about me doing that knowing we have what she considers a "perfectly good tv" in the basement. Any suggestions?
