Hey guys, i got a ps3 1 week ago and i love it. Now, my problem, i wanted to connect my ps3 to my computer monitor that is 19 inches with a logitech z-5500 sound system. I bought a hdmi to dvi adaptor and hooked it up to my monitor via DVI obviously, but it didn't work. I set it under display setting on the menu and there was no response, is this the HDCP problem, or am i doing something wrong? The reason i am doing this is because i am in the process of buying a 52' 1080p lcd tv, but thats a couple of weeks off because i am choosing what stand i want, but till then i want to play it on my monitor at 720p. Anyone's feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

any hdmi connection requires hdcp even if its hdmi to dvi connection. HDCP is used for hd movie copy protection so I dunno why it wont work for games.
