Hey, Component cables connect my PS3 to my plasma which supports 576i and 1080i, but not 720p or 1080p. I determined that from the PS3's test where you select which resolutions are compatible (Screen goes gibberish for p signals). I can't actually get the TV to display the type of input that it's receiving. I'm trying to work out the best way to get the best picture on the tv. Games like COD4 list on the back of the box that it should output in 720p, 1080i or 1080p so this should be fine as I assume it just selects the highest available resolution. A lot of other games (Uncharted 1/2) however seem to have native resolutions of only 720p. In these cases (because I have deselected 720p) will the PS3 drop the resolution down to 576i, or will it upscale to 1080i? Should I turn on the PS3 setting for upscaling? I figure it is better if the PS3 upscales to 1080i from 720p, rather than the TV doing it's scaling from 576i to it's native resolution. The TV panel only has a resolution of 1024x768 so maybe all this doesn't matter? I think I really just need a new TV that has this newfangled HDMI and proper HD resolutions Any help greatly appreciated. It's all a bit confusing.
