Crappy Quality play movies on Ps3 from External HDD

6 replies 68 views Edited Mar 11, 2013

Well I got my 1TB My Passport today, and I formatted it to FATA32, got my movie files onto the drive, and got them to run fine on the PS3. Only problem is, the quality is really bad, its not distorted in any way, it just looks like 480p when the movies are 1080p. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I never had this happen to me.


Try this. While playing the movie press SELECT to access the movie control panel. Now look for the Screen Mode button Screen_Mode and select this. This will change the video resolution between Full Screen, Zoom and normal.

I tried that as well, it doesn't seem to work though. Every movie I have is 1080p, and I tried about 4 different movies, for some reason on the PS3 it shows like its 480p.

Make sure to select all resolutions and select 16:9 for tv.

 

If this did'nt work then it's your tv.

Did all of this, I also just went out to my big TV where the resolution is 1080p, and it was still pretty crappy quality.

Can you also tell us the file format of the movie?

I don't think the usb ports were disigned for movie playback there to slow I belive there at 9600 baud.

 

Like Ky says copy it to the ps3 hdd and try again.
