Sharp Aquos PS3 settings
 
Just replaced my older 26'' LG with a brand new Sharp Aquos 32". So, I pose the following question:

The model I have is 1366x768 native res. It accepts 1080p in the sense that it downscales the signal... With the 360, I just have it select the optimum res and it uses 1360x768 through HDMI... With the PS3, its either 1080p or 720p. But... My logic is:

The 720p signal will be shown 720p, ie 1280x720. The 1080p signal will be downscaled to the TV's max res, which is 1366x768, which should look better. Am I making sense?

Is there any way to force the PS3 to use the native resolution just like the 360 does?

Thanks,
Tony.

Try both and use the one that looks best to YOU.

Not that I'm aware of. The PS3 supports 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i/p.

I think that 1080p looks better, though I will have to test more thoroughly. The thing is, not all games support 1080p and fall back to 480p if 720p is not available. If 720p is also available, some games supporting 1080p will not use it. So I will have to mess around... :( Anyways, I'm very happy with it. I got rid of a bunch of wires since I only use 2 DVI cables now and was using 6 cables before and kept switching between the two consoles(TV had one DVI plug only)... I "think" it looks better than my older LG (that one had amazing IQ).

Just enable 720p and 1080p, and the game will automatically pick for you since some games can't be forced to 1080p.

That's what I do with my Plasma, I just enable both of them and the game/system picks the best resolution it can run the game at.

Well, some games support 1080p but will only play at that if 720p is not available (ie Dead Space, Killzone 2)...

Yeah but you really wont notice that much of a difference if any unless you play extremely close to your TV. Im at about 15' away from my set and I can't tell the different between 720p and 1080p unless the game has some obvious flaw with the selected mode.

Now Blu-Ray is different... Dark Knight looks alot sharper in 1080p then it does at 720p for me.

Tried Assassin's Creed at 720p, and it looked like crap. My old LG was much better at 720p, I put it back and checked. Then I set the ps3 on 1080p which made the picture considerably better, which I guess the image was scaled to the TV's native res, compared to interpolating when at 720p. I ended up returning it. I'm receiving the LC32D65e tomorrow afternoon which is 1080p. That should fix everything, I hope...

Well, haven't posted about this for a while. My previous TV must have really had a problem at 720p, then upscaling the image to 1366x768p. Compared to my previous LG one and my current model, AC on the PS3 while at 720p looked like crap. Now, at 720p (upscaling by the TV to 1080p) it looks much better, even if it doesn't make sense... But, it looks blurry at 1080p (Assassin's Creed that is).

Killzone 2 feels and maybe looks better when 720p is available, rather than forcing it to run at 1080p (which as the devs stated is 960x1080 with pixel doubling)...

Overall, I am satisfied. Not as happy as I could have been, but happy.
