i know my tv is a 720p. but when i check for best poosible connection for the PS3 through HDMI with my tv it switches it to 1080p. i hit the display button on my tv remote and it gives me the output that i am using and it also says 1080p.

when i use my hi-def dvd player it only upscales it to 720p. but PS3 says 1080p

Oh ok, that puts a different spin on thing.

With a hdmi connection, the best for your ps3 is 1080p(BD). But it will downscale for your TV though (sorry to say). I am sure that's what it mean.
