EDIT: Actually, this one doesn't look too bad. It doesn't do 1080p though.

there are NO (READ: NONE, ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH) PS3 games that use HDCP... and there are also NO Blu Ray movies as of yet that use it either..
and HDMI to DVI adapter should have no problems working with your setup.

That's not true - my 2405fpw is proof of that. It isn't HDCP compatible, and I get no picture when I set everything up correctly for HDMI-->DVI. From what I've heard the updated 2407fpw (which is HDCP compatible) does work with that cable.
(and I do know how to set everything up the right way.)
I don't know if this is just an issue with computer monitors, it could be. I don't have a non-hdcp compliant tv with dvi inputs. Our Sony CRT (not HDCP) works fine with HDMI.

Yeah, I did. I actually set everything up for HDMI on our HD CRT (it worked fine, I set the PS3 to HDMI 720p before switching it over), and then moved it over to the Dell monitor and it didn't work. It shows the correct resolution in the monitor's info screen, there just isn't any picture.

i'm having the same problem: my girlfriend bought a 20.1" SCEPTRE widescreen LCD monitor that said HDCP in parantheses (but nowhere else) to use for herself and the PS3. the monitor is 1080i/1080p HD mode ready but apparently it is actually NOT hdcp complaint (how does that even make sense...)
according to the US playstation 3 general forums, i am not getting a signal with HDMI>DVI because the monitor is not HDCP, but this seems like bs because i heard that any monitor should display non hdcp media (like the ps3's cross media bar), in other words, get a video signal.
one problem i think might be that i don't know how to configure the monitor to accept HDMI. all i was doing was hitting the signal change button. i can't find anything about hdmi or dvi in the menu. i tried changing the PS3 to hdmi but that didn't get a signal...
also according to the US Playstation 3 general forums, i could use a component>DVI connector or something, but the only female component to male DVI that i could find requires certain graphics cards with up to date drivers. doesn't sound right?
i tried connecting the PS3 to two different non HD lcd monitors and this HD ready monitor with two different HDMI>DVI connecters and never got a signal! so it must be not setting the monitor up right, not setting the ps3 up right, or hdmi-dvi just doesn't work? help! i swear sony used black magic when they made these dumb DRMs and HDCP!
