I tried to hook up a playstation3 for the Blu-Ray player and it would not work. Only 480p resolution worked. In the playstation manual it said that some older tv's may not have a certain decoder to make it work.
Can this be added or do I need a new tv?
Hey. You need to first make sure your tv supports 1080p resolution. 1080p can only come from a blueray disc player via HDMI connection. If your tv does support this resolution, you then need to go into the settings on your ps3 to manually switch resolution output to HDMI along with all audio selections for dolby digital you want to make. ps3's are not set to HDMI out of the box, you need to set that up. Use the composite cables temporarily to change resolutions from 480 to 1080p via hdmi in settings then switch back to the HDMI cable to get picture after you have selected it. Component cables( red, green, blue) will pass high definition up to 1080 i but it will not pass 1080p so make sure you have the correct resolution tv, then the correct cables.
For this unit and the addition of the secuity features of Blu-Ray, the 1080i you set can handle is through the component input from a DVD player or an XBOX. In the configuration menu of the PS3, change the resolution to 1080i and see if your set will reset to it. The 1080i on the Blu-Ray is only possible on the HDMI cable as far as I could find, again due to the security restriction. The Mitsu is not going to run it in 720p due to the PS3 is running component and cannot control sync to this set.

You need to use an HDMI connection from blu-ray player to the television. If your tv does not have an HDMI input the tv is probably to old and will not accept 1080P. If it does have an HDMI connection it should display a minimum of 1080i.
Make sure the cables from the blue ray player are hooked up to the right 1080 high def input jacks on the back of the TV. There is two different sections, one for regular 480 inputs and another for the 1080i....
First, you have to set your Blu-Ray player to output 1080i (the highest resolution that the Mitsubishi WS-55511 can support). Then you hook up the player via component to the DTV component input on your set (it's the only input that can handle 480i/p and 1080i).
that is a load of bull trying to sell you a newer TV. If your TV has component video inputs, you can easily connect it to a blue ray player. One thing though is that this TV will not be capable of 1080p resolution but will work fine with 720P and 1080i and at 1080i you probably wont even notice the difference. Get the player from bestbuy and run to the closest walmart and pick up a component video cable for less than 20..
