So far upscaling looks very VERY good to me..

For all you experts out there, somebody needs to clarify various upscaling options & what it does as far as resolution is concerned.

For me, full screen & normal are the same. Double shrinks the borders of the image. I'm playing w/s dvds on a w/s tv.

Double may have something to do with Standard vs widescreen dvds/tvs.

You should enable the full range & wtw for the best image.

on ps2 games, normal seems to be 4:3 while full stretches it to 16:9. So if you have a w/s tv, your ps2 games will be boxed in on normal.


I'm playing my SD-DVD version of T3. Looks pretty good!.

Super white seems to be about clipping above white... best left on to prevent clipping. In fact this seems to affect clipping below black too. It's the levels switch we've been hoping for.

Can PS3 make BDs fullscreen to get rid of the bars, or cant that happen in firmware?
I want that bad, a perfect scale to fullscreen.

Uh... you can zoom but that will cut off the sides. You (should) want the presented aspect ration, if not OAR. I am tending to prefer Open Matte nowadays but I'll choose OAR and bars rather than a stretch or zoom.

You mean with a tv, or PS3 does the zoom?


I want it because of burn in, I had 4x3 bars burned in a LCD because contrast was to high, but the tv pic only gets a good 3d pop when almost maxed
+ if they could do it good its just a bigger pic that only eagle eyes would notice a downgrade, and you could choice to have it on or off.

There must not be any upscaling whatsoever over component for anything unless I'm missing something in the settings.

I really wish I could get it to windowbox 4:3 material like my Oppo does.

It's the same over HDMI. The upscaling only affects DVDs, and then only over HDMI. I also wish it could windowbox 4:3 SD material on BDs.

I haven't tried a PS2 game yet, but could the "Double" setting mean that it just doubles the pixels across and down rather than smoothly scaling? So, if a game was 640x480 it would double to 1280x960 with black filling in the rest of the screen?

Does the normal setting windowbox it?

Basically, all my settings display it at 1080p. normal and full are the same (probably because w/s tv, w/s dvd). Double boxes the image in on all 4 sides.

IS this the case with 16:9 PS2 games as well as 4:3 PS2 games - or do you have to flip between normal (for 4:3) and full (for 16:9) depending on the game?

FFXII is 4:3, therefore you have to flip to full to stretch it.

If it's a 16:9 game (which I think GOWII is), it should just stay 16:9 regardless of your option for normal or full. If you want a 16:9 game to go to 4:3, you may have to use your tv settings. Note that I don't have any 16:9 ps2 games. Confirmation would be nice.

No, if you have a 16:9 game and use "normal" it will be squished into 4:3. Basically you have to choose full or normal on a per game basis, depending on if the game is 4:3 or 16:9 (tested with Soul Calibur II and Shadow of the Colossus and Metal Gear 3:Subsistence)

Cheers - thinking about it there may be no way for the PS2 games to flag what ratio they are working in - as the pixel structure is the same for both ratios (720x576 or 720x480 I imagine?) with non-square pixels. ISTR that in the UK the SCART connection doesn't flag the aspect ratio - unlike DVD players and TV set-top boxes that do - and you always had to manually flip your TV aspect ratio. Now instead of screen ratio flipping we need to flip in the PS3. Not a biggie.

Is this update only available via the network? Sony's website still has 1.7 as the current firmware upgrade.

I'm still using dial-up at home, so a network connection is not a viable option for me. Has anyone found this update on Sony's site?

The Offical (NA) Playstation site doesn't typically show new firmware updates until about 12 - 24 hours after the network release.

Thanks Grad- I'll keep checking...

The PS3 gives you the option of 1080i playback and most of us I assume select it even if we have only 720P capable TV's. While PS3 games and Blueray look outstanding regardless, the question is what picture resolution are we 720P owners getting then? Hopefully Sony will offer the 720P firmware fix.

Thanks for the link seymour-

I downloaded the update from the official site today, but, despite following the instructions to the letter, my ps3 doesn't see the upgrade on my usb flash drive and therefore will not install it... I'm at a loss.

Maybe I'll take the unit to a friends house who has a high speed connection and try it directly through the network...

'

??? If you feed a 720P machine a 1080i signal it just scales it to 720p. Every single 720p projector owner watches 1080i/p material with no problems.

Now that 1.8 is out, let's move the discussion to the Master 1.8 thread so those with issues won't have to look all over the board to find them. Discussions involving BD movie playback go in the master thread in this forum. Discussions involving other 1.8 features and functions should go in the gaming forums.
