I got 1080p once but then lost it.
Installed machine for the first time - Applied all WU updates and Norton updates. Updated in-box Sony driver to the driver on the CD they ship with the XL3 (98.13). Used the system like that for a while. Updated the drivers to 158.24 from the nVidia web site. During the install (after the installer uninstalled the two previous nvidia drivers) the screen went black and never came back. Once the HDD stopped spinning I hard powered it down and on reboot I had 1080p as an option. However I had no sound at all over HDMI to the TV (it had worked prior).
I did a system re-image (F10 on POST). While this was going on I changed the TV over to another HDMI connection and noticed no audio on that - Turned TV off/on and audio was back! Damn, it was a TV issue most likely....
Since the re-image I have re-tried the above but still only get 1080i with the 158.24 nVidia drivers...
