    Hi! I have this monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014146

    and this cable

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812226013

    Connected to a normal TV and HDMI to DVI cable to my lcd monitor at the same time it gave me an option at startup to switch to my HDMI source, but when I did all I saw was black on the LCD screen.

    I was able to go into Display settings and switch it to HDMI manually but when it swaps to my lcd monitor its nothing but black again!

    Do HDMI to DVI cables work for PS3s? My lcd monitor does not have a HDMI plug in. Only VGA and DVI

    I'm hoping theres a trick to get this working or at the very least an adapter that wouldn't degrade the quality as much.

    your monitor needs to be HDCP compliant, yours does not seem to have it.
