I haven't used my PS3 in almost a year. When I last used it, it was connected via HDMI to my Pre/Pro. For the last year it's been unplugged and sitting vertically on my living room floor. Today, I had the urge to play a game. I disconnected the HDMI cable from the back of my cable box, plugged it into the PS3, connected the power cord and turned it on. I heard it but I didn't see it. I tried this 3 times all with the same result. Yes, the TV was on. Yes, the input was correct. No, it's not (or at least wasn't) set to output something different than my TV can handle because both my living room TV and my HT pre/pro PJ combo are both 720p. Besides, if I could hear it, I should've been able to see it.
