How to hook up PS3 to Home theatre with limited HDMI ports

by FreddyCoupler / December 8, 2012 8:52 AM PST

How shall I hook up ? I have a LG Reciever connecedt to my Samsung 61" HDTV with HDMI, I have SHAW- Gateway, so I have a portal that connects to my TV with HDMI. ( my TV only has 2 HDMI ports) and (my LG Receiver only has one HDMI port) So to use my PS3 I have to unplug my Gateway portal from the TV and plug my PS3 into my TV HDMI port, and visa versa to watch TV. / My question is this; is there a way to connect all 3 so that I don't have to go through this routine to watch TV, or to play PS3 ? Please help? is this the only way or is there an easier way??

Thanks dude, that's exactly what I was looking for. If I was rich I would send you a 1000 dollar bill just for giving me what I needed to know! "Merry Christmas to you"
