    During a thunderstorm, a thunder struck near my house and it destroyed my TV's HDMI ports and sadly it also took my PS3's HDMI input thingy. I was wondering whether it was possible to use HDMI without necessarily using the HDMI cables as they can no longer be read by my PS3.

    Component cables work though

    Get one of those component to hdmi converters. It's kind of like the converters for a computer to use vga as dvi, and dvi as hdmi.

    Will getting a component to HDMI allow me to be able to play in HDMI quality? The AV Components on my PS3 work, but I've tried resetting the PS3 (holding the power button) and it skips this and it just turns off afterwards. I've also tried enabling HDMI through the video settings on PS3 and that also doesn't seem to work.
    ALSO
    It takes 1-2 minutes to turn on the system and the system makes a weird little noise after the system turns on.

    No, but component-video is the highest form of analogue visual signals.
