What kind of inputs does the Mitsubishi have? DVI? Component video?

If the TV has no HDMI and it's truly an HDTV then it has Component inputs on the back. That is your best bet and only way to get an HD signal from the PS3 to the TV.

Yep you'll need component video. Sony's official kit is only $20, pretty surprising. Has analog audio options only though, but that may be what you're looking for:

If you want to use optical audio to a receiver that decodes the Dolby Digital/DTS/TrueHD/etc formats for BluRay watching, get a kit with a TOSlink optical connector instead. Here's a $40 Monster kit for example:

In his case, that is true, but there are also 1080i HDTV's out there that have DVI connections. In that case you can buy a HDMI to DVI cable. (however, this will not help the OP of this thread)

A little FYI: CRT-based projection TV's are more prone to "burn in" than other technologies. I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere in your owner's manual but, if an image sits still on a screen for a prolonged period of time (ie: a health bar in a video game for a marathon gaming session) there is a risk of uneven wear of the phosphorus coating on the CRTs causing ghost images to remain permanently. The reason this is more of an issue on projection based TV's than standard tube TV's is that projection CRTs have to operate much brighter than standard tube-based TV's.

I'd recommend to try and keep your contrast levels below 50% to reduce the risk of uneven wear. (Actually, I'd recommend that for anyone who owns a CRT based projection TV to prolong picture life).

Have fun.
