Hey everyone.

Ive got a HDTV with a DVI-I port and I've seen on the net you can get cords that will say connect into the PS3 (HDMI port) and the other end connects into the TV's DVI port. Will this work for me if I wanna use HDMI for the PS3 will a DVI port?

Thanks!

Excellent! So HDMI is the highest quality right? Higher then Component cables?

Oh yes! Certainly.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. By delivering crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable.

Hey, just wondering what it will run at and whats the differance between I (as in 740i) and P (1080p)? Just more check ups for the Next gen consoles.

My TV is a HDTV 32'' LCD. At the back it has all the resolutions for the different modes/channels as in like DTV, VGA ect. some are 640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1024 x 768.

The DTV, which I use for my PS2, has 3 different ones.
720 x 576p
1280 x 720p
1920 x 1080i

I've heard about PS3 games running at 1080i/p and just wondered what that did to the game?

Thanks!!

No need to keep bumping this thread. If anyone knows they will answer. If no answer comes, obviously no-one knows. I told you what i assume, without being sure.

In television 1080i sources go on to the screen sequentially: the odd-numbered lines of resolution appear on your screen first, followed by the even-numbered lines. Progressive scan formats such as 480p, 720p, and 1080p convey all of the lines of resolution sequentially in a single pass, which makes for a smoother, cleaner image.

As EscondeR said in his post you require a HDMI to DVI convertor cable.

The resolution of your television ( NEC 32" LCD - NLT-32W )
is 1366 x 768 and your games will not be displayed at anything higher than this.
