/Sigh

So i bought an hdmi to dvi cable for hd gaming/viewing on my ps3, only to come here and found out my HD tv isn't hdmi copy protected :( So i buy a HD component cable for the ps3 off ebay which states it handles upto 1080p.

To my surprise when i turn on the Ps3, the menu is only displayed in something like 570i... So thought ok lets try a movie and when i put in X-men 3, the resolution dropped to 480i.

Both my HD camcorder and xbox 360 work as high definition through these ports, so has anyone any ideas as to what's going wrong this time?

Sorry to point out the obvious but you have been into the picture settings and changed them so that your PS3 knows what your TV is capable of displaying?

Out of interest what TV do you have ? Chances are that unless it is one of the larger more recent HD TV's it probably doesn't support anything higher then 1080i.

Off topic slightly but....reminds me of my mate who asked me over to sort out his wireless network as he could get it to work.

When I arrived I noticed his router wasn't plugged in..."Why do I need to plug it in?" he said "it's wireless" :suicide:

Yeah thanks guys, altering the settings worked :) Just never expected to have to alter any settings since i didn't with my camcorder or 360

You would have had to change your X360 to output higher than 480p.
