    PS3 - Help needed?

    If I have a PS3 connected to a TV via the HDMI output, this taking up the HDMI port on the PS3, is there a way I can simultaneously use another output from the PS3 to connect to a Monitor to either the DVI or VGA inputs on the monitor.

    When the Mrs has the TV on, I am wanting to use the PC monitor as a back up. Any ideas, don't have a PS3 yet to check out for myself.

    Is this the standard rear of the PS3?

    I am hoping the 'AV Multi Out' will be able to go to the monitor, but not sure what cable is needed, is it included and also what output it would scale?

    i dont think you can run both together, but, you van use the multi out to connect to most analogue input monitors.

    Won't need them both on at the same time, I had a 360 and had a VGA cable and a HDMI both output from the console and they worked fine. What is the Multi out cable like, can it go to VGA or DVI?

    The multi out is the same used on the ps2 and ps1. its a std playstation output.
