PS3 as a Blu Ray -- Question
 
I have my PS3 hooked up to my 46" XBR LCD. At best, the picture is comparable to a regular DVD. I am not using HDMI. Using what came with PS3.

My question is: When hooking up PS3 and watching a Blu Ray movie, should I have tpo chane any settings on my XBR or should this automatically up-convert to 1080p?

OK the problem is you are using the cable that came with the PS3 which is a composite cable, the worst possible connection you can have! I think it's only 480i!

You do need to upgrade your connection, the component cables that work on the Playstation 2 will work on the PS3 so if you have a set of those around your good there but for the best picture quality get a HDMI cable Like this one from Monoprice.com for less than $5, now if you don't have an HDMI receiver you will still need a audio connection, I use the Tos0Link (Fiber optic) cable) to get 5.1 sound.

Now your XBR will upconvert it to 1080p which is it's native resolution but it's upconverting a 480i signal so it will never look any better than a regular DVD without upgrading your connection.

Blu-Ray movies look amazing on my 70" XBR2 from my PS3 with HDMI.

If you really wanted to improve the look of things in terms of video scaling - you might look at a DVDO VP50pro. I would run it HDMI without question.

ALSO - don't use cheap cables. You don't have to break the bank. Look into Accel, Ultralink and Transparent's basic cables. Even as analog cables - these will provide a notable improvment for high res sources.

Jerry,

I'm down with that! I am trying to get a VP50 pro for my main rig, that thing is amazing!
