PS3 no longer sends HD output over DVI connection to Philips Plasma

Have tried searching for a solution to this without success . I have an original 60gb PS3 connected to a 5 year old Philips 50PF7320 plasma TV, which is HD, but only has a DVI input.  All worked fine until around 6 months ago when (I think) after a system update, the PS3 refused to talk to the TV.

The TV still works perfectly with a DVI feed from the SkyHD box; the Playstation will also happily output in HD to a (different) HD TV over HDMI, so I'm sure there is no malfunction with either piece of equipment.  My suspicion is that there was some HDCP protocol update to the PS3 which has made it fall out with the TV; so:

(i) Does this sounds plausible?; if so,
(ii) Is there any way around it?; if not,
(iii) Any ideas what's causing it and how to fix it?

Thanks for any advice!

(i) Yes
(ii) Sadly dont think so
(iii) A firmware could have blocked some aspects of the HDCP protocol

ii = Switch to component 1080p cable to DVI conversion connection. Component does convert to DVI if the port has Analogue connections not pure digital.

Thanks for this - TV does accept analogue, so I'll give it a go. A lot cheaper than buying a new TV (and I don't think the TV's firmware can be updated)...
I'll post an update once I've got the cable - cheers

Stupid question maybe - but have you tested the same cable with another source device ?

Have you checked your settings in PS3?

A firmware update might have added some options you actively have to select to get it working like before.

Yeah - checked the cables, checked and re-checked all the display options on the PS3 and the settings on the TV... no luck. Was hoping it might be recognised and fixed in a later update (although that was always unlikely, given that updates tend to be 'forward looking' rather than backwards. Have ordered cables, so hopefully a couple of days away from resolution- won't be quite as good as the original connection, but will be a lot better than SD.

Cables came this week, tested them tonight and I'm pleased to report that it works! Picture is more or less the same as it was over digital DVI - much, much better than the scart connection. Thanks @GraphiteGB for your suggestion.
