Question non-480p PS2 games scaling issues on Samsung HDTV...

...I posted about this before but it was long ago and this situation is a bit different. If someone could give me some insight that'd be great.

Samsung 30" Slimfit HDTV CRT 720p/1080i 16:9
PS2 connected with componenet cables.

Games like Gran Turismo 3, Devil May Cry 3, Killzone, etc, that do not support 480p aren't being scaled properly on my TV. I will try to get some screenshots up. But it looks much like the same scaling problem that the PS3 had with upscaling PS2 games, with the jagged edges. Now, God of War II. When I turn P-Scan off the jaggies are all over (esp text), as if the game isn't being scaled properly. Turn P-Scan on and everything is smooth.
Also, changing the aspect ratio in non-480p games doesn't change anything.

So is my TV upscaling the 480i signal from the PS2 to 720p or 1080i? Is it displaying in 480i? My remote has an Info button which tells me which resolution is being displayed at only for HD but when 480i is being displayed it wont tell me what resolution is being run.

Im lost people.

P.S. If I hook up my PS2 through S-Video there is no scaling issue whatsoever but my S-Video is being used.
