    If this is your TV it says no support for 720p

    most games are 720p so it will probably downscale to 480p as it cant upscale.

    buy Ridge Racer 7, if it looks great compared to other games, then you know the PS3 is giving 720p as 480p, where as Ridge Racer 7 supports 1080p, so will go into 1080i.

    From your profile it looks like you live in the US. These seems to be a common problem with older HD TV's in the US where they support 1080 and 480p but not 720p. As has already been mentioned the PS3 cannot upscale so any games that only support 720p will be donwscaled to 480p. Only if and when Sony fix the upscaling issue will you be ablr to play games in 1080. The only games that will play at that resolution at the moment is the few games that do support it like Ridge Racer 7, Virtua Tennis 3, Virtua Fighter 5, NBA 07 etc. By the way just to let you know this is a UK web site and forum so most people here live in the UK. This thread is also in the wrong forum and should really be in the main general PS3 forum.
