    I have mine set to full screen and it works fine on everything i've watched. If you go to the online instructions via the PS3s XMB there's a breakdown of what the different settings do.

    Double Scale is useless IMO, all it does is literally take the 720x576 source image and double it up to 1440x1152 so you'll lose some of the image on 1360x768 HDTVs, giving it a zoomed in look.

    Full Screen will output widescreen movies as they're meant to be but will also stretch 4:3 TV shows and movies to fill the screen. Normal keeps the aspect ratio as intended so 4:3 stuff with display with left and right borders. Which you prefer is a matter of taste, personally I use Normal so that old TV shows like The X-Files and Space: 1999 don't look stretched.

    Posted in wrong forum as general PS3 forum is more appropriate. Also this has been disccused several times and a search will find the threads. Closing this thread.
