    Hi,

    Is there any way of this display outputting 1080p?
    Or will it be possible to in the future with say a firware upgrade. if so how do i do a firmware upgrade?

    Also is it possible to get this display to be upgraded to HDMI 1.3?

    The reason i ask is i just got the playstation 3 for Blue-Ray use and want to get the best picture possible.

    Many thanks

    Mark

    Your display is already capable of accepting a 1080p/24 signal, this does not require HDMI 1.3, which for the display has no relevance at all, the plasma panel is not capable of 'deep colour' which is the only possible relevant part. You don't need to send DD THD sound to the thing, do you? The PS3 is not yet capable of 1080p/24, the 1080P modes are at 50 and 60Hz, no better than 1080i for films, they are only relevant to games. The display cannot cope with them anyway. I take it this is what you mean, as the TV never outputs anything except a picture. As it's resolution is fixed at 1365/768, no firmware can alter that. It's highly unlikely there will be any upgrades on offer for it, unless a major fault is discovered in the existing firmware.

    Maw you always seem to come through, when you say the ps3 is not yet capable of 1080p/24 is this something that will be available in the future?

    Thanks
    Mark.

    I believe it's a planned firmware upgrade, and fairly essential for optimal BD playback, to avoid the 3:2 pulldown stutter induced by 1080i/60.

    So if and when they upgrade the firmware on the PS3, will my Tv be able to benefit from the 1080p?

    Thanks again MAW.
