I want to connect my european (PAL) PS3 to an american (NTSC) sony LCD TV.
How can I do it ?
Should the HDMI work ?
Or maybe the component ?
How should I set the PS3 and the TV ?

HDMI will be fine, although component will work also.
In display settings you can click which resolutions your tv supports. If your TV can support 1080p, then check the 1080p box and the 1080i box. If your tv can only support 720p then check either the 1080i box or the 720p box.
Hope this helps
Yay my 1000th post

You need to untick 576 as an output option (if you can) PAL signals have 576 pixels of vertical resolution versus 480 pixels of vertical resolution for NTSC, if your sending a PAL signal to your NTSC tv it will show as unsupported signal as it can't display it.
Any PAL DVD's won't display unless you upscale them via HDMI and untick 576 as an option in the display settings.
Games & blu-rays should all play fine as they are not PAL / NTSC formats (Apart from some blu-rays that have standard definition extras in them, you may find some of them won't play but the film will play fine.
Try just forcing your output to 720p (add 1080p too if your tv supports that) I'm not sure if you can untick 576 as its a PAL console (might be greyed out) but setting the display to 720P should let you display everything except PAL DVD's in sd.

je suppose que vous êtes français
Je suis au Canada et viens de beaucoup investir pour pouvoir jouer à ma PS3 (frenchie) et mes jeux PAL avec la nouvelle TV HD 1080 Samsung (NTSC).
... sauf qu'avec la HDMI haut débit, rien n'y fait ... je ne peux même pas faire reconnaître ma PS3 via ce câble HDMI.
Votre solution du COMPONENT CABLE fonctionne vraiment?
PLEASE ... expliquez-moi le processus.
si rien ne fonctionne, je vais rendre tout ce beau matos au commerçant et m'acheter tous mes anciens jeux avec une PS3 US. :/

I can't speak french , so I try to explain in english.
You should buy PS3 componnent cable ( it cost 10-20 $)
Connect the cable to your TV componnect input , and you should see the PS3 on that TV input.
