Re: Whats the highest resolution?

Thats all interesting stuff, but here is what confuses me, Sony talks 1080p up like crazy for Blu Ray and the PlayStation 3 but if they plan on doing it through HDMI they are only allowed to get up to 1080i or 720p because HDMI has copyright laws or some type of law that does not allow it to send a 1080p signal, so unless Sony is making their own cable I dont see how we are going to get in sony's word "True HD"

that is why HDMI is making a 16 bit port cause current ish is 8 bit. PS3 will at least have a 12 bit or something like that.

No, you'll be able to get HD through HDMI. You are right though, the audio/video going through HDMI will be copy protected. HDCP or High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection they call it( something developed my intel). You will not be able to get the so called "True HD" through HDMI unless is HDCP certified. However, as of right now that only applies to movies....I don't think it applies to games (or we yet to see if does). The reason is that PS3 also has a standard A/V output, HDMI isn't  some requirement for games at least.


P.S. Damn these freakin acronyms....
