my PS3 wont display 1080p on Samsung HL-R6768W 1080p DLP :(

by haris300 / February 24, 2007 1:54 PM PST

so i bought the Samsung HL-R6768W 67-inch 1080p DLP TV and its great. but im having issues with the 1080p and my Playstation 3.

when i try to change the hdmi video output mode on my ps3 to 1080p, my tv says "NOT SUPPORTED MODE"

but 1080i/720p/480p work fine on my tv from the ps3.

its just the 1080p.

i am using a real decent HDMI cable and it really ticks me off that my 1080P tv wont display the ps3 in 1080P.

and i dont have anything else thats 1080p except the ps3.

could the problem be hdcp or what? i dunno

so what do i do guys?

It is not a true 1080p tv :(

From the Cnet review (under 'Features of Samsung HL-R6768W')-

'Like most 1080p HDTVs on the market, the Samsung HL-R6768W cannot actually accept a 1080p sources (more info). It can, however, accept 1080p via its VGA input, which is a major boon for people who use home-theater PCs and want to achieve full 1,920x1,080 resolution'

I call this misreputation.

If you don't like it, return it for a refund.

misreputation? i'll just assume you're trying to say false advertisement.

unfortunately, its not. the tv has a native resolution of 1080p. and it does take in a true 1080p signal (only via vga). it isnt really the manufactorer's fault.

but i'd suggest you exchange it for a 1080p samsung that WILL take in a 1080p signal. you really wont see a difference, but it will probably make you feel better at night.

Hehe, sorry I meant misrepresentation.

In reply to: uh

From what I understand, the horizontal traces are 1080p but the vertical trace are not progressive, which is not the normal way of doing thing. Am I right or wrong? I just hate company that write their own rule and called it the norm.

Your TV won't accept a 1080p signal
by bkchurch / February 25, 2007 5:56 AM PST

But it will upconvert all material to 1080p so it shouldn't matter, you probably wouldn't even see the difference between 1080i/p unless they were running side-by-side and even then the difference wouldn't be huge and since it's upconverted to 1080p you're still getting a progressive signal so i'd just set the PS3 to 1080i, let the TV upconvert to 1080p, then sit-back and stop worrying about it, you're still going to get an amazing picture.

The reason why.

I know this is an old post but I figured I would put my two cents in anyway. One thing you have to consider with your Television is that it has multiple HDMI ports, port 1 commonly being labeled as DVI. Each port may take in a different amount of intel for picture and audio, which means that one or two ports may support 1080p, where the others may only support 720p, or 1080i. This is normally because different devices have different quality to them, and makes it easier to assign specific ports to them (hence the customizable input labeling per input source that Samsung televisions have). Port 1 (DVI) is usually the one that gives you the highest quality (1080p).
