    Hi,

    I have a PS2 and a HDTV with component inputs.

    I have just been reading the review of Gran Turismo 4 on www.ign.com and they say "it looks stunning in 480p and 1080p for lucky HDTV owners"

    Do I presume that all I would need is a PS2 Component Lead ?

    Do any other games support HDTV ?

    Also, I am in UK and have a PAL PS2... I know the Xbox has HDTV output disabled on UK Xbox's... would this be the same with PS2 or not ?

    The component input isnt disabled, so you will be able to switch it on there.

    HOWEVER...

    I think Microsoft has removed the 1080i option from the UK release of GT4 as the PAL output of the PS2 doesnt cater for the 1080i signal..

    I hope Im wrong about this though!!

    Thanks for the quick reply...

    When you say I should be able to switch it on... do you mean an option in the game itself or something to do with the PS2 itself ?

    Sorry, I wasnt clear. You can turn the component output in the PS2 core options menu (when it boots up without a game, and with the sea-shore sound).. You change the output from RGB to Yb Yr Qb Xy (cant remember what its called, but its the other option!!!)
