I would really like an option on the XMB that automatically selects 1080i when I play a blu-ray movie and am using the XMB and when I put a game it switches to 720p.

I just don't like having to select it myself from the display options and having to switch back when I start to play a game.


if yor tv is 720p/1080i it will have 1366x768 pixels, so using 1080i (1920x1080) requires more scaling and will look worse than 720p (1280x720). Also 1080i is interlaced, depending on how good the video processor in your tv is at deinterlacing it will also make it look woese.




i thaught 1920x1080 is 1080p? & 1680 x 1050 is 1080i? if im wrong what is 1680 x 1050?

yep 1080p is 192x1080 and 1080i is 1920x540

Please use plain text.

Wrong,there both 1920x1080 ............

1080i is technically a higher resolution in terms of the amount that is displayed per frame (NOT to be mixed up with 'per field refresh'). However, thanks to the fact that it refreshes odd and then even fields per frame update (going through 2 update passes to refresh one frame), the actual real realtime representation of the data is inferior. The total frame is still higher resolution, but since the frame is consisted of 2 sets of alternate field refreshes, the detail is ruined because of the alternating fields.

You seem to be of the impression that 1920x1080i basically equates to the same as 1920x540p in terms of detail - this
