PS3 compoenent connection and setup

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Do you have your PS3 connected to your TV via component? what TV do you have? Do you run the connection thru a receiver? how did you configure the PS3 for this connection? What are your impressions of the picture quality of BD movies?
Needless to say my connection is component. My TV is pio-503CMX. the connection goes thru a Denon receiver with a component switcher. The picture quality of BD movies is not impressive. It looks like regular DVD. The picture quality of trailers i download to the PS3 from Sony Playstation Store look better than what I'm used to from cable HD.
What is frustrating to me is that I know the PS3 can send an HD quality picture over component to my TV and I know my TV can handle it. So why is the poor quality of the BD movies?

Can you post your setup and impressions?

Thanks,
Avi

If you don't have a hdmi cable then you will continue to see BD movies in (480p) <-- ugly.

Using a hdmi cable enables 720p and 1080i.

How is your PS3 configured for BD/DVD Video? Since you are connecting via component, only 1080p is not available - however, 1080i, 720p and 480p are available. What resolutions have you checked off in the BD/DVD Video settings?

I didn't see any such options on the BD/DVD setting. I saw them under the display settings and i checked 480p/720p/1080i. Can I set resolutions in the BD/DVD section?

You reviewed the submenu I intended.

Can you confirm on your Pioneer what resolution is being displayed when you view a Blu-ray disc? If so, what is it?

I'm using an HDMI cable on a 720p native Panasonic LCD and I'm very pleased with the PQ of Blu-ray movies. They certainly look better than DVDs.

I have the PS3 manual in front of me and it says that it supports 1080p (copyright protected Blu-ray material can only be displayed at 1080p via HDMI), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i via component.

I remember your other thread......what movies have you watched so far?

I'm using Component for video and HDMI for audio on my PS3. I'm getting 1080i out of component for BD.

So far I watched MI3 and Kingdom of Heaven. is there a way to display what resolution the PS3 is sending to my TV?
BTW, the picture quality at the beginning of the disk, when it promotes High Definition seems to be the real thing and then it reverts back to a lower res picture. Does that make sense?
maybe the picture is great i just can't appreciate it with my casual eyes.

why do you use component for video if you have HDMI?

Really? Page 7 of my PS3 Quick Reference manual says that HDMI/Component connection supports 1080p/1080i/720p/480p/480i.
