Playstation 3 VGA monitor

6 posts in this topic

Hey all, I was wondering if somebody had any idea how I can clean up the signal from my PS3 to my monitor

 

I frankensteined the RCA (Yellow Red White) into a powered converter box, which outputs to a VGA computer monitor. The image is really blurry  it's pretty hard to read text on games.

 

Will a better VGA cable help this? Is it just because it's RCA? or do you think the converter box is causing it?

 

My Xbox  looks flawless but that's because Microsoft makes an actual cable for this, but Sony doesn't so I have to jurry rig it.

 

The converter box is outputting 1280 x 1024 at 60hz that's the highest quality it will put out

Yeah I don't know what the hell you did to it. I'm pretty sure it's because you rigged it why your signal is blurry. Either that, or because the RCA's definition is kinda lackluster and cramming it into an HD input probably didn't improve the resolution any.

If it's feeding into a computer monitor, I don't know what to suggest other than "buy a TV with HDMI inputs".

I'll try hooking it to my DVI monitor but that will be going through a VGA to DVI adapter, probly wont help.  I was mainly trying to figure out if the PS3 itself has some settings and can fiddle with

Tried messing with the PS3 display settings, no luck there. Anyone else have any ideas?

You're using RCA, which only really works with 480i (your settings are for something between 1080 and 720). Plus those converter boxes are usually crap. If you have a DVI input, use a HDMI to DVI cable.

Yeah but the problem is with HDMI I have to buy an adapter to pull the audio off of the cable so I can run it through my laptops mic port.

 

I actually have gotten used to the image quality, most games are ok, just GTA V is hard to read the text in.

 

I'll probly buy a composite cable, and this composite to DVI adapter I saw, it's just a plug, no box or anything
