Question regarding my ps3 (settings) and my plasma tv

Hey everyone need some serious help here regarding my Plasma tv and my ps3. This is the TV I'm using with my ps3 running through an HDMI cable. http://www.abt.com/images/products/P...pg20_specs.pdf

Can you tell me if my settings are correct to get the best picture possible (playing games and watching blu-ray & dvd movies)

DISPLAY SETTINGS:
Video output setting : current resolution 1080i
crosss color reduction filter: on
RGB Full Range HDMI: Full
Y PB/Cp Pr/Cr Super White (HDMI): On

VIDEO SETTINGS:
BD/DVD Cinema Conversion: Automatic
DVD Wide Display: Letterbox
BD/DVD upscaler: Normal
BD/DVD Video Output format (HDMI): Automatic
BD 1080P 24 HZ output (HDMI): OFF
BD/DVD Dynamic Range Control: Automatic

If there are other settings that are needed let me know thanks!!

I'd change the output settings to 720p since that's the highest your TV supports.

Raptor 700R

you shouldn't even see a picture if your hd settings are higher than the tv supports. so as he said put the ps3 hd settings on 720p.

he will get a picture because the majority of 720p sets will support 1080i just fine but i would put it at 720 too. it keeps the tv from having to work.


all the other settings look fine.

So my TV can't do 1080i?

If I set it to 720p that means that I can only watch blu ray movies in 480p right? I though there was an issue with blu ray movies not being able to downscale on the ps3 to that resolution?

Set your PS3 to auto detect video setting... mine auto downscales on it's own. Alot of the PS3 games are set at 720p anyway.

No! 720p is a better than 1080i. Bluray movies will play at the resolution that your system is set to. So if you set it to 720p they'll play back in 720p. videos that are 1080p will downscale to whatever your system is set to, if your tv doesn't support 1080p.

The reason I set it to 1080i is because I keep reading that the ps3 CAN'T play blu ray movies at 720p and that it will downscale to 480p. Can someone please confirm if this is true or not.

I keep reading different things stating that this was in fact a problem when the ps3 first came out and that a firmware fixed this. I've also read other threads searching through google that it still exist and sony has not fixed this problem.

It does play BR at 720p. That thread is over 1 1/2 years ago. Firmware updates has corrected that. My last TV was 720/1080i. My ps3 was set to 720p. No issue at all.

Thanks for clearing that up, I just wasn't 100% sure since I didnt' see any recent threads when searching about this issue.
