I currently have my PS3 connected via composite/scart.
To be frank, the quality of the picture is just terrible in comparison to my XBOX 360 which I have running at 720p/768p with my VGA cable.

My TV is a Philips 17" LCD TV with DVI-I, composite,phono, s-video and scart connectors.

Now my question is would this work?

PS3 RGB Component Cable (Not Yb Pr... blal bla etc) connected to a component to VGA cable.

As in this http://www.gameathlon.com/product_info.php?products_id=14750 connected to this : http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4681 then connected to my TV by a VGA to DVI-I.

Secondly would I notice an improvement in picture quality as it seems that RGB will only output a max of 480p resoloution?

it would look like the same quality scart still I'm afraid.

Maybe get yourself a HDMI cable and buy a HDMI -> DVI adapter?
I *think* that's possible.. just doing a bit of reading about it...

edit: something like this might be worth a look: http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/HDMI-DVI-Adapter.html
get yourself a cheap HDMI lead too from ebay or see if a deal pops up on here..

So basically it wouldnt be worth it.

I was looking into it last night and read something about it needing vertical and horizontal sync?

The PS3 requires HDCP over HDMI for HDMI to work, I doubt my Philips TV which is about 3 years old will have it...

Hi, if your TV has free Component Cable YPbPr I would use that, as much good as HDMI, if you have digital sound system just use your optical cable.
Most even old HD TV have at least Component input (which is better that VGA, maybe some persons say not as good as HDMI). Most old HD TV don't have DVI. (but can't be sure as we don't know the model of the TV)
Sure they are PS3 to Component cable on here somewere

Found one, asked guy to check this post out, might have cable you need.

You sure your tv doesn't have DVI-D?


Yeah it has DVI-I which has the pins for both DVI-A (Analogue) and DVI-D (Digital).

However I doubt it has HDCP, I might try it though.

Bought a DVI-D to HDMI cable off ebay and low and behold it works fine.... (Ive suffered with crappy composite for a year and all it took was a £2 cable!)..

I suppose Philips chose DVI-I (D/A) to stop it from getting cramped

I agree :)
