Trouble running PS3 on 1080p

by squallzie / May 31, 2008 11:21 PM PDT

I own a samsung 46' F series LCD tv, i can run call of duty 4 on the ps3 on 1080i resolution fine. But when i set it to run on 1080p, the screen flickers and its unplayable.
Could anyone tell me what is wrong? i am not sure if it's the cable or the tv.

Don't worry

I can't tell whats wrong, but I can tell you not to worry about switching it. Most TVs will take of the switch from 1080i to 1080p by themselves. Sometimes better then the dvd player or game system does.

What cables are you using if your not using a HDMI cable it will not work in 1080p because blu-rays can only be played using a HDMI Componet Cables will not work for 1080p only up to 1080i.
