I just got my Pioneer PRO-950HD in this week and connected my PS3 to it yesterday. I was going through the "display settings" menu on the PS3 and did an auto configure and it came back as saying that my set would display 1080p when in actuality it's a 720p set. I THINK the Kuro can accept a

1080p input signal and then scale it down but I'm not sure. Is it ok to just leave the setting on the PS3 to 1080p or should I change it to 1080i or 720p?

Ideally you would not scale DVDs, as that would cause multiple scaling operations. Not much you can do about games, you may not be able to output them as your TV's native resolution.


I don't know if your display can handle 1080p or not as input. I am guessing you are using HDMI, and the HDMI negotiation is telling your PS3 that it can.

720p TVs may be 1024x768 - my 37" plasma was. A 720p signal is 1280x720. 1024x768 displays must scale the 1280x720 signal to 1024x768.

yes, i am using HDMI and it is telling my PS3 it can accept 1080p.

I have the Panny TH-50PX60U which is a 50" plasma and its rez is 1366x768.

Are there 3 different 720p resolutions? (1024x768, 1280, and 1366?)



Also:

I'm getting ready to get a ps3. Obviously my tv isn't capable of displaying 1080p...am I going to have problems like MichaelJHuman is alluding to?

I have the same display and a PS3 and have the PS3 set to output 1080P, which our displays will accept. So far, so good. No issues a little calibrating hasn't fixed.

If you don't mind me asking how much are the Pioneer PRO-950HD selling for now?

No, there is ONE 720p output resolution (1280x720). However, different display devices have different native resolutions for their panels (the ones you mention above, for instance), so they will scale that 720p input signal to the panel's native resolution.


On some displays, inputting a 1280x720 signal then having the panel scale it to 1366x768 or 1024x768 will yield better results. On other displays, inputting a 1080p or 1080i signal (1920x1080 pixels) and having the panel scale that to 1366 or 1024 will yield better results. It depends on the quality of the scalers in both the player and the display device, so there isn't a single "always set it to this" answer. You need to experiment a bit to find out which works best with your particular combination.

Ditto. Set it to 1080p.


If your display's native resolution is 1366x768...and you set your PS3 to 720p (1280x720) than your TV will be doing an upscale to get it to your displays 1366x768. If you "enlarge" a pixel based image...quality is going to suffer.


If your display's native resolution is 1366x768...and you set it to 1080p (1900x1080) than your TV will be doing reducing that image to your displays 1366x768. When you "reduce" the size of a pixel based image...quality does not suffer.


Of course, all this depends on how well your display scales. That differs greatly from display to display. I'd stick with 1080p. I have a 720p Panasonic Plasma...and my PS3 looks noticeably better at 1080p than it does at 720p. Both look good, mind you...but the 1080p has crisper text.

You'll just have to try both and see what works better...but I would always try to feed your display the highest resolution image it can handle and then drop from there only if you feel its necessary.

I think another thing to note about sending a native 1080p signal to a 1366x768 TV is that there is only one scaling process done throughout. Whereas with sending a 720p signal, two scaling processes occur, once in the PS3, and once again in the TV, although the scaling from 720 lines to 768 lines is not as significant. So take that as you will.

so the pro-950hd's native resolution is 1024x768. i guess the best thing to do is to just set it at 1080p and let the tv scale it down.
