View Full Version : Modulator Question.
12-11-2009, 02:54 PM
I have an HDTV with my PS3 currently hooked up to it, but I also have a 360 that is connected using an RF Modulator. So while the PS3 displays in HD, my 360 is on Standard, I was wondering if there was a Modulator for HDTV's? I've checked lots of websites but couldn't seem to find one. I really want to play my 360 in HD as well and don't feel like moving the TV constantly and unhooking wires like that all the time, just to do so.

Does your tv support 2 HDMI inputs, that's what I'd recommend other then trying to modulate it.

It supports only one for the multi-colored wires, however, I'm new to the HD thing, I only got the TV on Black Friday, so my experience with them is little to none. So when I purchased it, they recommended a wire called HDMI or something like that for my PS3 connection. I have that along with the red, white, yellow and so on wires connected to the back of the TV.
Can it run on one of those connections or does both of the wires have to be used? If so, I can remove the HDMI wire and purchase one for 360.

If you have an HDMI cable, you don't need the RCA (red, white, and yellow) cables. It can run on one of the sets, but the RCA cables don't do HD, just standard def. I'd look into a second HDMI cable for the 360.

Thanks for the info dude, I'm gonna re-set it up soon and see how it turns out.

Let me know how it works out, I can suggest alternate ways to connect stuff if this doesn't work.

It didn't work unfortunately, my TV has five plugs in the back, the cables had six plugs. However, it did have two HDMI outputs, so I can try and purchase an HDMI cable for the 360 and plugging it there. Any other methods aside from that though that you'd recommend?

Here's how I have my stuff configured. I have my digital cable box hooked up through HDMI, my PS3 hooked up via component cables (red, green, blue, and red and white for audio), my wii via RCA cables (red, white, and yellow). You also have to make sure your tv is looking for the correct input source also, there should be an input button on the remote or on the side of the tv itself. All the sound from the inputs comes through a surround sound system that hooks to my Audio Output jacks on the back of my TV.

Yeah, when it all was set-up, I switched the button on the cables to HD and went into the menu and tried to select the HDMI options that were available. They didn't get highlighted, so it was basically saying there was no HD connected. I double-checked the other option I had connected before, which was through the TV and I got no picture. So, I just hooked everything back to the old set-up, I'm gonna try and look for a 360 HDMI cable and put it into the second outlet. I'll let you know what goes down, thanks for helping me out dude, I appreciate it!

Sure thing. It's what I'm good for.
