PS3 Video Format conflicting with Tv format

I have a problem. I currently have a regular SDTV in my apartment, but went to my parents house and played on 1080i HD. SO i switched the format of the ps3 to 1080 and now I can't see the video on my SDTV due to the settings change. Is there anyone that can tell me directions to blindly change my video settings or is there another way to fix it? Thank you for you time.

    My Ps3 didn't come with a hardware disk. I have a 60gb one not sure if that changes anything.

Put in your ps3 hardware disk that came with your system in the box and switch back the parameters that way your system came with a setup disk that auto matically runs in lower mode so you can reset your system parameters

Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

I re-scanned my channels this weekend because I lost HD on 2 of my local channels. Now I have HD back, but I have 2 black lines on each side the picture on all of the HD channels. How do I get rid of the...


A broadcaster will transmit an HD channel in 1 format. This may be 720p or 1080i, both of which are HDTV formats. HDTV formats have an aspect ratio of 16:9. SDTV or standard definition broadcast have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Because not all content is record in an HD format (ex: Judy Judy), the broadcast is faced with 2 options. #1, stretch the 4:3 picture do that it fills the 16:9 canvas. #2, simple place black side bars on each side of the 4:3 image. What you are seeing is the latter of the 2 options. You will notice a change during the evening programming. The bars are only there when the content is not HD. You can use the WIDE feature of your TV to stretch the picture so that it fills the screen, just like broadcaster option #1 above.

If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.

Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.

IN HDMI MODE MY PLASMA TURNS OFF WHEN I SWITCH FROM HD CHANNELS TO REGULAR CHANNELS


OK, Great ! I have the same box. What you do is press MENU on the remote. Scroll down with arrow keys and goto SETTINGS and press select. Scroll down to VIDEO SETTINGS and press enter. Press the right arrow key to go into VIDEO FORMAT. Make sure you have 1080i selected if you haven't had it selected already. Click continue and not your box will output only 1080i. Now, one more thing. While still in VIDEO SETTINGS, scroll down to SD OVERRIDE. Press the right arrow key and make sure you have this setting turned OFF. Press Menu few times to exit out. Now, your Motorola box will only output 1080i and will upconvert SD channels to 1080i. To test this, just simply switch from and HD channel to a SD channel and your TV should stated 1080i on both stations. You TV will not have to switch between resolutions. Hope this helps...

Your component cable is probably switched to the HD setting. You have to switch it back in order to get video when hooked up to a regular TV.
