Your not, so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it. S-video should be showing in 480i. My guess is that maybe it has something to do with widescreen versus 4:3. I don't see how a game that CAN support progressive but isn't using it is any different than a game that is interlaced. Both types should be running 480i if it is a PS2 game since most of them cannot do anything above that. (ie 1080i) Maybe the tv itself handles the component differently? If your not running progressive then there isn't really a reason to use the component cables anyway since s-video will give just as good of a picture.
On the PS3 I would try turning on the scaler as well as off as it might be making things worse on certain titles when it is on.
