By A/V, do you mean composite by any chance? Composite can't handle 1080i.....and I think composite is the cable that is packaged with a PS3. You need to buy the component or HDMI cables seperately.... I think....
I bet your HD box is using component cables and not composite cables. I know my Time Warner HD box is using a component cable hookup, anyway.
Composite is video out (yellow), and left and right (red/white) speaker out. Component is red, blue, green video out with optional left and right speaker out... I say optional 'cause sometimes brands of component cable doesn't come with the audio part, guess they expect you to use the optical cable instead, for the sound.
Anyway... try the composite/S-video mode and see if that works. Or go to the store and get some Sony PS3 brand component cables..
on the hints secitionof that link it says:
If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
Now... if all the above doesn't apply to you..... then I have no clue why you're getting a black screen. Unless.... did you select 1080p as a supported resolution thatyour TV can handle? TV probably can't handle 1080p and you are loading a game that can use 1080p and that could be why you are seeing a black screen.... maybe...... My HDTV doesn't support 1080p.... it's about 5 years old. But you mentioned 1080i....so, I guess that's not it, either.
