Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV
I have read a lot about the ps3 machine not converting 720p games into 1080i. When I play ps3 games on this television does the tv automatically downscale the signal to 480? or does it convert the signal into 1080i.(Basically, can my tv make up for the ps3's inability to convert the signal) I have noticed that ps3 games seem to have a slightly mirky effect on my tv. My xbox360 games look much sharper. The xbox 360 acts like an HD cable unit in that it converts the signal to 1080 for my tv. Or maybe I'm just paranoid!
SOURCE: TV clicks off by itself!!!!
try looking at the board inside the TV for bulged capacitors see polaroid thread. this is the problem on the polaroid could be the same here.

Your cable company must provide the 720p in order for the set to display it. No set can convert a 480i signal to display 720p. This also applies to Outside antenna and Satellite and Games. The ps3 will look at the program and decide which resolution is best for the game then send it on to the set.
