Blu-ray - 1080i

PS3 games will be in 720p or 1080i. Your tv supports 720p I'm sure.

I have this combo. Blu-ray movies and games are displayed at 1080i. SD dvds and ps2 games are displayed at 480p (ps2 games look better on the ps2 though). Unfortunately, no crt displays 720p (except, of course, computer monitors). Still looks fantastic though!!

I am not an AV guru. So any help appreciated. Just Got a PS3 60gb. Hooked it up to my samsung HLN 756 dlp Tv with a HDMI>DVI cable. the system works perfectly on the 2 games we have so far. I set the video settings to 480p and 720p (the max for my TV) and unchecked 1080i and 1080p. The set would not recognise the 1080i or p signal via the DVI. supposedly it can accept a 1080i signal with the component inputs.


Now the problem:


When I play a DVD movie i get a small picture in the middle of the screen, not the full screen. The games use the full screen. Is this the upscaling issue people have been talking about? I havent tried a Blue ray disk yet. Am i just an idiot and have it set wrong?


Thanks in advance.

The PS3 won't output Blu-ray at 720p (not yet at least) so you have to feed the TV 1080i via component if your DVI doesn't support it.

Sorry, no pix. I'm not sure a still shot would look very good compared to the 1080p fixed pixel displays out there now (just wouldn't be quite as vivid and detailed). But I think the overall picture on the 960 is still a little superior (might be rationalizing -- lcd, plasma and lcos have come a long,long way). I think you will be very happy if you purchase a ps3 -- it's a bargain considering everything it does (and does WELL).

well i have the hddvd addon "VGA" and a ps3 "HDMI" running on a olevia 42 inch lcd, as far as im concerned "CRANK" on blueray and "CORPSE BRIDE" on HD it looks outstanding..

but i've always heard that the xbr960 was still heads and shoulders better than anything else on the market
...still til this day!

My mistake... I had assumed you already owned the xbr960 and was contemplating the ps3, not the other way around (could have sworn I recognized your username from the crt forums). Have you come across a good deal on an xbr960 or something? I thought they were exceedingly hard to find these days.

Hmmm... that's a toughie. The xbr series has a lot of features and I don't know if a universal remote would cut it for me. Maybe Sony could send you a replacement? It is a a good price though -- maybe you should get some more opinions in the crt forum. Also, it might be difficult going from a 42" to a 34" screen (no matter how good the PQ is).

Is it displaying DVDs in 4:3 with the side black bars? If so, I had the same exact problem. I have a Sony CRT KV 34XBR800 (earlier version of TV mentioned above). . .I was HDMI/DVI connection. It displayed hi-def content fine but would not display DVDs correctly. I had numerous conversations with Sony over this and finally got to someone who was knowledgeable. In short, I wasn't able to use the DVI and get 480p DVDs to play. So I switched to the AV/Component connection. Using this will give you all your hi-def and play DVDs correctly. It did cause another problem for me, that was eventually solved as well. . .it's been a saga, but everything works great now. If only Sony would train their techs better these issues could be handled a lot quicker. . .

In my opinion ... yes. Any small advantage in PQ the xbr960 has over the 60" sxrd is negated by the huge difference in screen size. If I were buying a TV today, the 60" sxrd would definitely be on my short list of candidates (I paid about the same amount for my 960). However, I am not sure how often the bulb has to be replaced or how much it costs. If you do a lot of off-axis viewing, maybe a plasma would be better suited to you ... just a few factors to consider.

you need to check the 1080i. games will play in 720p and movies will be 1080i. looks great.works great. even though the tv is 720p the movies look better fed at 1080i and scaled by my tv to 720p and for games it plays at 720p. the 360 you cant do that.
