Re: only get 480p
Your friend is wrong you will get same resolution of 1080i whether you use component or Hdmi.
But you will need a high def input to tv in order to get this resolution EG high def cable box or satellite. http://dysonmanuals.llc.nu/

Your TV should have component inputs to connect your PS3 to. You will have to get an adaptor such as appears on the link I have provided. You will only be able to use resolutions such as 480p, 720p or 1080i since component does not support 1080p. Hope that helps : )
hi, u can enjoy full hd 1080p video through only ur tv inputs as 2 component video and 2 HDMI. the tv is seted to receive videos up to the resolution 1080p automatically (need not have any setting). just check the output of ur cable box or BD player, is it outputs full hd. if u are using the tvs internal tuner u will only get 480p.
You will have to change the dvd player resolution to 1080i (or change resolution for each individual disc), because:
a) there is no way to change the resolution manually on this television
b) this TV maxes at 1080i, hence negating most of the utility of using an hdmi cable (Of course, hdmi cables are much easier to hook up, less messy than component cables; so all is not lost)
This model supports the following formats: 1080i, 720p, 720i, 480p, 480i. Most likely it isn't the TV that is not allowing the 1080i resolution but rather your cabling or the inputs that you are using.
Be sure that that you have an HD signal coming into the TV. You may have to upgrade your cable subscription or if you already have the channels sometimes you have to tell your cable box to use 1080. The same goes for DVD players; they often default to only 480 to maximize compatibility.
The other area to check is your cabling. For the best results use HDMI or Component video.
If you have already checked both of these options let me know & I'll try to come up with some other options for you.
This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.
Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.
I had the same problem with the picture being unstable or breaking into left and right sides. I finally purchased Monster cable component video cables and all the problems went away. I can change resolution just as the product spec says. I can choose 480i or 480P or 720P or 1080i, I would try 1080P but I don't have any box capable of that resolution but I'm sure it would work.
