Is it possible to connect a PS3 console to my HP Pavilion 23-F204A?

[ Edited ]

Hi there, I have an HP Pavilion 23-F204A Touch Smart, All in one PC. It has Windows 8 http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03793875

 

I have just bought a Sony PS3 gaming console and I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me if I am able to connect the PS3 to my PC please.  

If it is possible what would I need to purchase in order to hook them up?   I am not a very computer savy person so your patience and help is very much appreciated.  

 

Thanks very much

Hello Mummyjaz,

Your TouchSmart does not have an HDMI input, therefore it is not an available option to use your TouchSmart display as a monitor for your PS3. A USB to HDMI could exist, if one did exist it would properly does not have the necessary bandwidth to produce a smooth crisp picture. As far as I know HP does not manufacture such a device.

Regards.

There is no HDMI outlet on the PC but would a HDMI to USB adapter possibly work in this situation?

 

Thanks
