PS3 and 4:3 Tvs
Just wondering if anyone can help me? I have an older Toshiba 1080i tv with a 4:3 screen (it has 2 component inputs, no HDMIs). I have my HD PVR and my DVD/receiver into them, which displays these in letterboxed form. I got a PS3 for Xmas, and now I'm screwed. I disconnected the DVD to use the PS3, thinking I could use the PS3 to play all my DVDs (I don't have any Blu-Ray yet). In my settings, I got the games outputing 1080i letterboxed, but DVD playback is distorted. Its still letterboxed, but the edges of the screen are missing and the video is stretched top to bottom longer than it should, almost like the first generation letterbox, close yet not right. Does PS3 automatically assume anything 1080 is 16:9? If anyone can help that would be great.
On another note, does anyone know if the reverse-splitting optical audio into one input ever gets confused or has any other drawbacks. My DVD/receiver sucks.
