Brandon provided it, but keep in mind that screen grabs also are dependent on your monitor/display for accuracy in terms of color, detail, etc.

What you see will be affected by your own monitor. As an example, in the threads the screenshot section I am running a 37" 1080p monitor. The DVD picture appears much, much larger than native resolution..so they look worse than normal....the 1080p shots appear smaller than real-size, so they will look as good as they possibly can. In those picture threads, assuming you are using a monitor at a rez greater than 480p, the DVD pics will take a visual hit.

And there is nothing wrong with the person's PC...they've been doing this for years now and other tech/review sites actually refer to some of his threads for information.

Irrelevant.

Anyhow, I didn't see the macroblocking that he references in the fire shot...

Hi guys!!!

Getting ready to buy my first PS3, can't wait!!!! I was just wondering for standard def DVD's, I know it upscales the PQ, but will it also do this with say avi files on a USB??? Or do the avi files in standard def need to be burned to a DVD-R to be upconverted???

Thanks guys in advance for your answers.


Long live the PS3!!

:

Firmware 2.42 Video changes are below:

***

Video

* You can now use the [Frame Noise Reduction] and [Block Noise Reduction] settings for video content that is saved on the hard disk or storage media.
* You can now play upscaled video content that is saved on the hard disk or storage media. When the video content is played, it is upscaled automatically to match the screen size.

***

To my eyes the upconversion is noticeably better when the file is played from optical media. The files I have watched are home movies in Mpeg2 format.
