Hello guys!,

I just had a small question. If I connect my Playstation 3 to a 23 inch cinema display with HDMI > DVI. Will it work? My current display, a Samsung 930BF isn't HDCP compatible so it gives a black screen. Any info if it does work with Cinema Display? Thanks in advance.

Greetings, The Specialist.

I'm 90% sure that it won't. Apple displays are not good for connecting to input sources other than a computer.

If you want a display that's very versatile, Dell displays are good.

Get Dell for this kind of thing. A lot more input options for different things. Technically, you can have multiple consoles hooked up to a Dell display at the same time.

The ACD does not support HDCP so the PS3 would not work with it, Some Dell monitors do support HDCP, but i believe they only work under 720p.

Any Dell display that can be recommended then? Thanks for the comments guys!!!!
2407WFP or the 3007WFP. The HC models are even better (92% of the NTSC colour gamut), but are pretty pricey if I remember correctly.

You can get the 2407 at a pretty good price...
