What cables do I need to hook my PS3 to this monitor? I will be using the Creative Inspire T12 speakers as well. Can I hook the PS3 and speakers up while leaving the DVI connected to my MBP?

Thanks.

hdmi to dvi (either a cable that does that or an hdmi cable and an adapter from hdmi to dvi)

or if the monitor had hdmi, just an hdmi is needed

i then use the provided cables for sound

So I can hook the PS3 directly into my desktop speakers for audio, and run HDMI from monitor to PS3 for video?

I have a Dell S2409W as well. Look here:

Connect your MBP to green port (line in) on the back. The HDMI from the PS3 should carry audio and video.

Then connect your speaker set to the blue port (line out) on the back.

When you select HDMI on the monitor, it will output the sound from the HDMI source. When you select DVI, it will output the sound from the DVI source. If you don't care about audio from your MBP, you can leave out the audio connection from it.

Nice! I see, I can leave my MBP and PS3 connected at the same time. That's good news. Appreciate the help.

Is there a certain HDMI cable that I need or are they all the same?
