    do what ?!?
    what tuner ?

    don't tell me you hooked up a ps3 to a TV with coax

    ALWAYS hook video equipment up directly to your display
    I don't suggest hooking it up through an AV receiver
    (i hope that's what you mean by 'tuner')
    unless you intend to lose signal along the way

    Yes AV Receiver is what I meant.

    My Dad hooked it up anyway.

    So you suggest hooking the PS3 up directly to the TV? We have those nifty (and expensive) HDMI cables as well.

    The reason I asked this initially was when I downloaded the Resident Evil 5 trailer it sometimes went fuzzy in the background on parts of it when the scene scrolled across, which got me thinking if my TV was not upto it or if I had it set up wrong.

    :rolleyes:
    you've really not learned a thing in all this TV talk

    if you have a 1080p capable set
    you hook up the ps3 to it with an HDMI cable
    then activate 1080p in the display settings

    No not really. It's like learning another language.

    no it's not
    it's simple resolution

    I = interlaced (fine black lines visible horizontally - old tube tv style)
    P = progressive (no visible scan lines - high end PC monitor)

    Progressive scanning is ALWAYS better than Interlacing
