PS3 to cable box

Hey there,

I have a Motorolla DCX3200 with my Shaw Cable internet.

I recently bought a PS3, and hooked up the PS3 through the cable box using the HDMI port in the back.

I've been trying for a good hour, but I can't switch the cablebox to go to the PS3 instead of showing me cable channels.

How do I change the video on the cable box to bring up the PS3?

From what I can tell, the DCX3200 doesn't have an HDMI input, only an output which you connect to the TV.

How are you currently connected from the DCX3200 to the TV?

What is the make/model of your TV?

You need to connect the PS3 directly to the TV, not through the STB.

Additional info, just as an FYI:

Ah I see. Dang! I was hoping this was not the case.
I bought the PS3 through a friend, and all he had was an HDMI cable.
Since my TV does not have an HDMI connector, looks like I will have to buy an AV multi out connector.

Thanks for the quick reply!
