    a buddy of mine is house sitting for a little extra moolah and when he was trying to hook up his ps3 to their hdtv he saw that the best resolution it had was 960i. neither of us had ever heard of 960i and i was just curious what was going on.

    my guess is that the tv is one of the original hdtvs and the manufacturer didnt know 1080 would be the prefered resolution, not 960....

    960i is not HD. Some of the older televisions that were HD compatible, requiring an external HD "decoder", had built in versions of line doublers that would convert 480i to 960i. It was a nice idea but sometimes did not work well. Doubling the lines of a bad signal did not make for a pretty picture [laugh].

    in all reality, he'd be better running it in 720p
    which is native for most ps3 games anyway
