Re: Does the ps3 upscale normal dvds to 1080???

Weather or not you notice a difference will ultimatly depend on how good the upscaler in your TV is to start with.

 

If you feed your TV a standard 720x576 signal from a DVD then before the TV can display it the TV has to upscale it to the panels resolution ie 1920x1080.

 

However if you set your PS3 to upscale the DVD then the TV will recieve a signal thats already at the panels resolution (1920x1080) and the TV wont need to upscale it.

 

Now the important part is which has the best upscaler the PS3 or the TV. The upscaler in my Samsung TV is rubbish so I get a much better picture by letting the PS3 do the upscaling where as it sound like your TV's upscaler is just as good if not better than the PS3's so thats why you don't notice a difference.

Yes it does upscale to 1080p and does so really well. Looks alot better than those upscaling dvd players you can buy.

 

I will always use the ps3 as a home entertainment/gaming/music/internet hub. Love the ps3, just hoping that it will never yellow light. 80gb since august 2008

Re: Does the ps3 upscale normal dvds to 1080???

Yes the slim does upscale but it doesnt do it anywhere near as good as the old 60GB models. Which if im honest nearly upscaled dvds upto the same quality as a blu ray, im not kidding it was that good.

There is no difference in upscaling quality between the old fat PS3 and the slim.

 

Slim Review

 

Very last paragraph says there identical, and theres no reason they shouldn't be.

That's one thing that irks me a serious amount, when people try to make out upscaled content is as good as native HD content, especially Blu-ray.

 

It's just not.

So true, Upscaling is basically stretching the video to fit to the native resolution of the screen, where as a video intended for that native resolution will always will look better.

I would not call it basically stretching the image. Have you ever seen an upscaled image versus a stretched image?

Yes it does, obviously you could get a better picture by watching they Blu Ray version, but it can upscale DVD to 1080P and it looks lovely but go for native where you can :smileywink:
