Why can't I get my PS3 to go 1080p

Found 20th Oct 2009
I got a 50" full HD tv here hotukdeals.com/ite…sma and set up my PS3 last night with a HDMI connection but when I choose 1080p the screen goes blank and flickers. It works with 720p and 1080i.

I also have a 360 set up using component cable and I can select 1080p for that. Any idea why PS3 won't work with that setting?

where did you change it to 1080p (output display settings or video settings for BD)?

check your cable, and reset all settings and then try automatic to see if the ps3 can get 1080p.

they finally including 1080p on all thier games now??

either way, you should be able to do it for a blue ray disc...

oh, and you went over to the dark side, shame on you! lol

you have to change it in two places:-

]Settings > Video Settings

Video Settings

Adjust the playback settings for Blu-ray Discs (BDs), DVDs or video files.
BD / DVD Video Output Format (HDMI)

Set the video output format to use when playing a BD or DVD. Set this option when the system is connected to a TV using an HDMI cable. Adjust the settings as necessary for the TV in use.
Automatic Set to automatically select the best video output format for the TV in use. RGB Set to output in RGB. Y Pb / Cb Pr / Cr Set to output in Y Pb / Cb Pr / Cr. BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI)

Set whether to use 1080p 24 Hz video output mode for output of BD video. Set this option when the system is connected to a TV using an HDMI cable. Adjust the settings as necessary for the TV in use.
Automatic Set to automatically switch the video output mode to match the TV that is connected. Off Set to output at the maximum resolution that has been selected in the video output settings of the PS3™ system. (The video output will not be displayed at 1080p 24 Hz.) On Set to output BD video that was recorded at 1080p 24 Hz directly at a resolution of 1080p 24 Hz. Hints[LIST]
[*]The TV or AV amplifier (receiver) in use must support 1080p 24 Hz video mode. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the device.
[*]The Blu-ray Disc (BD) that is to be played must also support 1080p 24 Hz video mode. In most cases, video is recorded at 1080p 24 Hz resolution for commercially available BD video software (BD-ROMs) for which "1080p" is displayed as the recording mode.
[*]If the video output settings do not match the TV in use, video may not be displayed on the screen when the resolution changes. However, the setting will automatically reset to the original resolution after a short while. If nothing is displayed on the screen for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system, and then turn it on again.
[*]If video does not display correctly when [Automatic] or [On] is selected, set this option to [Off].[/LIST]

I'll go with that, Wouldn't spend more than £10 for one though, but I would agree that the consistant quality of a £2 HDMI could be questionable.
