I think the PS3 can only sense a HDMI connection and thus only if you have your 'display monitor' and 'sound processor' (television/reciever/pre pro etc) connected via HDMI, can it set things automatically. As for any other form of connections, the PS3 has absolutely no way to know what connectors you are using and/or what your equipment is capable of, thus it cannot set things up automatically for your system. By doing as you suggest, ie. "Press the power button on the front of the PS3 and keep your finger on it until the PS3 beeps.", the PS3 will only reset to it's default settings. What you have suggested is not an "auto setup mode", but rather a simple 'reset to default' procedure. By the way the default settings are, 480i video out (connections for this need to be made to the composite connector on the display monitor), Stereo analog audio out (connection needs to be made to the analog audio connector on your television/receiver/pre pro etc.). Both of these connections can be made with and only with, the standard cable provided with the PS3.Evolution-One said:One thing that's always worth remembering if you are having AV difficulties with the PS3 is that it may be worth you running it through the auto set up mode to try remedying it.
To do this, make sure your PS3 is on standby with the red light on. Press the power button on the front of the PS3 and keep your finger on it until the PS3 beeps. It will test to see what you have connected to it and set it up with the maximum specs that your equipment supports.
