Did you try a different HDMI cable? Just because its the easiest to check and to get it out of the way.

Looks like artefacts due to crappy HDMI cable...

You should have purchased a Monster Cable!







Just kidding... It also looks like you should buy a tripod.

I had the same problem setting up my father-in-laws PS3. 720p/1080i didn't show the specs as noticible as 1080p. Give these guys a look for a replacement. http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...02&cp_id=10240

Brand of TV? While it is most likely the HDMI cable, the Sony new LCD TV's had a sparkle issue that was resolved with firmware updates.

No, 1080p requires twice the bandwidth of 1080i, hence a cable might cope with 1080i, but choke on 1080p.
