This is the confusing question I have, straight from the specifications page for my TV:

Video
  • Video Signal : 1080/60p (HDMI™ / COMPONENT), 1080/60i, 1080/24p (HDMI™ ONLY), 720/60p, 480/60p, 480/60i
Does this mean that when I use HDMI 1.3b on my PS3 I'll get 1080p? even thought the native resolution is 720p?

Have you tried enabling 1080p on the PS3?

I haven't gotten the TV yet, I'm getting it next week, I just secured my own box since I work at Wal-Mart. Right now I'm using the provided A/V cables for PS3 Slim. Graphics are still amazing on 26 CRT but many texts and words are ****ing hard as **** to read.

But is it really possible for 720p HDTV to display 1080p video like the Sony specs say if I use HDMI cable? because on another forum, people say it can't and won't ever unless you have 1080p HDTV instead. So I'm really confused

Do you rmember using something (a USB device) called "Wire Shark" to up-load your game-save and then downloading to your computer, so the 'judges' could see your race and times?

A 720p tv cannot display 1080p video at 1080p resolutions PERIOD. The TV physically has 720 lines of pixels. There is absolutely, positively no way for it to increase to 1080p regardless of input.

The specs are basically telling you that the TV will ACCEPT a 1080p video input over the HDMI connection. Once your TV accepts the video input, the optics in the TV will simply downconvert it to 720p resolution.

I have a 50" 720p Panasonic Plasma with a resolution of 1366 x 768. Which means that regardless of what input I feed it. (DVD at 480p, HDTV at 720p, or BluRay at 1080p), my TV will always display this at 1366x768...because that's the physical number of pixels that I have on my display.

The slim model comes with 120GB of storage...which means you can alocate alot to linux. As far as I know the slims will run linux too as the slims are running the same FW as the Foremans (Big PS3s).

My issue with linux on the PS3 is that it is SLOW!!!!! I installed Yellow Dog Linux a bit back (which has a distribution designed for the PS3) and I couldn't take it. Things might be different today but who knows

the new slim model comes without the "other OS" option taken out. atleast that's what i've been reading. thats why I got the 40gb model, plus saved me about $100.

there is a few editions of Ubuntu designed to install on the PS3

to me it just adds more usability to me, i was tempted to get a 360, but the PS3 has the edge with upgradable HDD, blu-ray, linux, wi-fi
