connecting the ps3 to multiple tv's

by cjd6400 / February 20, 2010 10:38 PM PST

Does anyone know if the ps3 will output component and hdmi signals simultaneously? I have a plasma in one room and a projector in the next room. I would like to connect them both at the same time without a switcher or splitter.

You can try it

You can try it, but I suspect HDMI will likely overrule the others. Besides that, the effective range of component video is pretty short (like 10ft before you start getting signal loss) and HDMI is only like 30ft before you need some kind of signal booster or repeater. So, I'd wager that even if you COULD get it to work like you wanted, you'd still need some kind of signal booster to get it to the other room.

Sorry, that has been tried before. To split it, you need the usual COMPONENT VIDEO splitters.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
