New to using forums so not sure if correct procedure to ask a question!
I have ps3, hd plasma (pioneer pdp507xd), AV Amp (yamaha RX-V2600 (HDMI 1.1, support for LPCM5.1)) and I am unsure as to best connection option.
PS3 auto sets max video and audio resolution supported when connected via hdmi, so when I connect ps3 to amp it will output max 5.1 LPCM but only 720p/1080i (amp wont support 1080p).
When connecting ps3 hdmi to tv it outputs 1080p/24fps but DD/dts5.1 via optical.
Tv is HD (720p/1080i) set NOT Full HD (1080p) but with support (?) for 1080/24 (BD movie native resolution).
What exactly does it mean to have 1080/24 support on hd tv and would I get most benefit going through amp to take advantage of lpcm5.1 or outputing 1080/24 to plasma directly (which amp doesent support)?
Is it the case that ps3 output of 1080p@24fps (or 1080i for that matter) is accepted by hd plasma and then downscaled to 720p, in which case there is no benefit in outputting 1080p and I would get more advantage by using lpcm5.1?
