Default question regarding PS3's 1080i problem.

My HDTV supports 720p, but upscales it to 1080i automatically. Does this mean that if I had a ps3, it would downscale everything to 480p? Or would i be seeing things in High Definition? Because I have heard that the ps3 can't do 1080i at all.

no he should be fine as long as it accepts 720p. the ones who are screwed have tvs that cant accept or display 720p.

I have a native 720P HDTV that can upscale to 1080i as well, however, when I play BLURAY movies, I don't see a difference between DVD and BlueRay. Why is this??

it doesnt scale to 1080i it accepts 1080i the scales it back down to 720p. thats what native tvs do they accept the other resolutions then convert them back to the native of the tv. here is the problem when it comes to hdtvs of smaller size (32" and under) sometimes its harder to see a difference. HD was meant for big screen tvs and giving us the ability to sit closer to them. i know on my older 32" toshiba there were alot of SD movies that looked HD.

also try checking the settings of the ps3 and tv. there could be something you have setup wrong.

I might have jumped the gun, the booklet for my TV says all signals are displayed at 1080i. Does that make any difference? Can i play ps3 games in HD?

Yes you can, set the signal to 1080i, not 720p and it will downconvert to 720p for Blu-Ray movies.

What is the make and model # of your set? 1080i is interlaced, and doesn't sound like a LCD or plasma.

All signals will be converted to your TV's native resolution of 1080i.

so its fine if your ps3 is set to 720p because the tv will accept the picture then fill in the extra lines needed to create a 1080i picture.
