My house was indirectly hit by lightning last year. It appears that the HDMI port on our flat screen was damaged and no longer works. I am thinking on purchasing a PS3 but unsure if I can use it in high-definition. I know it requires a HDMI port for hi-def, but is there another way? The rest of the ports work fine I believe. My father can hook up and use his laptop perfectly to it. If I can’t use hi-def, what are my other options?
