PS3, HDMI, and HDTV compatibilty - Page 2

post #31 of 1373
I can confirm that before I was able to fix my HDMI issue, I had mine set to 1080i, and both Resistance and the Motostorm Demo both downscaled to 480p (Both are native 720p games). When I could get my 1080p to display correctly (see my post above), both of these titles did remain in Widescreen HD, which seems that it will upscale, but it must remain in progressive mode throughout the whole process.

So you're saying the PS3 can upscale 720p games to 1080p, just not 1080i?

If it has to scale RFOM to get the full picture on the Samsung LNS4696D to get 1080P then it work fine for me. Resistance looks good in all 46 inches.

Guys...concerning the issue of 720p games not upscaling to 1080i, can someone post an e-mail address to PS3 customer support so that AVS members can mass e-mail Sony about this problem, and hopefully if enough people do it we can expedite a resolution.

I did personally check all the paperwork and manuals that came with my PS3, but there was no e-mail listed for customer service. There is a phone number which is: 1-800-345-7669 in case anyone would prefer to call.

Edit: I came up with this link on the Playstation website for customer support in case someone would like to give it a try:

The connection for HDMI on the PS3 can get loose very easily and you lose picture.

This was probably what was happening to me as it happens often now. Even a slight shake from your sub-woofer on the TV stand can cause the hdmi to disconnect.

Speng.

Westinghouse 37w3 and ps3 gets non stop picture flashing when the ps3 changes resolutions. Turning the TV off then on will fix it. Anyone know how these are doing with the SXRD A2000's?

If I could get my hands on one without having to get a second mortgage, I'd test it out on my A2000.

I have the Sony R60XBR2. Monoprice HDMI cable works perfectly fine with ps3 for me. BR looks good!

I have my ps3 plugged into my denon 4806 via hdmi. When I set the ps3 to output 1080p i get sparkly artifacts on the ps3 user interface as well on talledega nights. My tv is a 70"xbr2. Is the problem on the reciever or the ps3? anybody have this problem? When i set the ps3 to output 1080i everything is perfect.

any work arounds or is this a known problem.

Ya - I'm a little confused about this also. If you're using an HDMI cable, then what's the point of using a digital optical also? Which is better?


BTW - Can I use the HDMI cable for PlayStation 3DLC-HD20P, which supports HDMI 1.3, even if my TV only has HDMI v1.1 or 1.2?

Also, does anyone know what version of HDMI is in the KDS-R60XBR2 ? And what's the difference between HDMI 1.1 and 1.2?


Thanks

I am trying to find someone with an A2000 and PS3 as well to see how they are doing. I have a 60A2000, but alas I cannot get ahold of a ps3.

37w3-flashing screen and no signal, turn off the tv and turn it back on and it seems to work.

this is my problem, will this ever be fixed? with a firmware update, or is it an issue with the tv?

My post on the first page states I tried a HDMI-DVI adapter and the sparklies are all gone at 1080p now. Perhaps it could be inconvenient for you, but it's a proven workaround IME.

I don't know what's better, but I run my HDMI cable to my TV, and the Optical cable goes to my component video switch and then to the receiver for decoding.

The PS3 is the only device on the market that has HDMI 1.3 so no no display has 1.3 yet. You can connect to any HDMI port it doesn't matter what version as far as connection goes.

As far as HDMI and Fiber Optic, if you have a HDMI reciever then you don't use fiber optic. If you don't have an HDMI reciever then you have to use optic to get digital surround from the PS3

Is this a known problem or is something wrong with the ps3?

It seems that the PS3 doesn't automatically switch based on the game content's resolution. I tried hooking the PS3 up to my XBR960 via HDMI and resistance would output at 480p when the XMB was set to 1080i. I had to manually switch the XMB to 720p in order for the game to output 720p. This also goes for the Motorstorm demo. On the other hand, when I had the XMB set to 720p and put in the Talladega Nights BD, the PS3 automatically switched to 1080i when the disc started playing.

i have this problem, i was wondering is this something that could be fixed with a firmware update? or is this something that will always happen no matter what?

JVC HD-61FN97: (rear projection HD-ILA, with I believe has the latest HDMI 1.3 support)

With the PS3 hooked up to the HDMI:
- 1080p works with no problems
- 720p work with no problems
- 480p (might be i... whatever is used when booting PS2 games) I get a flashing input and the TV never synchs. If I switch from the HDMI cable to the PS3's composite cable then I can see these 480i games fine.


With my cable box hooked up via HDMI 1080i, 720p, and 480i all work with no problems. (The cable box does not upscale these in my setup)

It seems odd that it is having problems with 480p, but not the higher resolutions...
post #54 of 1373
Has anyone tried the playstation 3 with one of the 3 HDMI ports on the Hitachi 42HDT79 or 42HDS69? Does it accept the resolution at 720p or 420p?

I thought that there aren't any TVs currently available that use HDMI 1.3 - am I correct?
post #56 of 1373
is the screen flickering on the westinghouse tv fixable? or is it permanent, maybe with a firmware update?
post #57 of 1373
I hope the westinghouse issue gets fixed with the next ps3 update. I think ill just get a better tv such as the A2000 though.

I have my PS3 hooked up to my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 via HDMI and I have this problem as well.

Will using an HDMI to DVI converter work as a workaround until this is fixed?

Are we sure the issue is on the PS3 side?
