My PS3 is set to 480p, why? (HDMI issue?)

6 replies 504 views Edited Sep 12, 2009

Someone out therre please help me?

 

I have a 1080p lcd,  my ps3 is connected to it by regular HDMI.

 

I am in the settings menu on my ps3 and I notice it's set to 480p --- so I go and change it to 1080p (no signal) so I try 1080i ---it changes to it but doesn't stay it just reverts back to 480p.

 

Why am I not able to change it to 1080p?

How much did you spend on that cable? Anything over $5 is a complete waste. If not too late, take it back and buy one off of www.monoprice.com
