PS3 Component Question - is it worthit over AV

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hey guys

ok recently i bought a Playstation 3 with what little money i had haha. and i still use a TV called "TEVION" CRT Model Number T2195B

And according to this link
http://ernie.awa.com.au/Tevion---TV-CRT/default.aspx

The operation manual for T2195B

It supports YCbCr connections which i think is component cables from what ive googled. i could be wrong, but if it is

Is it worth upgrading to a component cable and how much of an improvement would i see

for the 10 bucks i'd upgrade to component over RCA. It's a litle better than composite. Also because it's a CRT it should have lower latency AND the image quality should be pretty decent too.

If your TV isn't HD it doesn't really matter. Component might look slightly better, but shouldn't be a large difference. If your TV can do HD, component would let your PS3 run movies in 720p and games in 1080p.

Yeah should help, even at 480p. Though that TV might do 1080i?

My Parents old Rear Projection CRT based TV was able to do 1080i, and was a huge upgrade over the standard 480p. Though many PS3 games are only in 720p, and don't support 1080i. Which sucked.

Which is why the xbox 360 was nice, it has a scaler chip so every game could do 1080i.

Old Rear Projection CRT TV's like that didn't support 720p, only 1080i for HD. So with no Scaler chip in the PS3, it was kinda annoying. Though I had a LCD for myself and rarely used the Rear Projection, but that TV was used heavily during the first couple years of owing the 360.

Thanks for all the info

I forgot to menchone that i have a Digital Box for digital tv in australia since every tv station is using digital now, it seem's to use the typical AV connectors, but for some reason with that box, i could change the resolutions to 480p, 720 and 1080p and i without any trouble. i have no idea why i just remembered i could do that and wondering "why the"

also your using a CRT it might be able to handle a higher resolution than that of compositor and SD TV with the component. you can test various resolution int he PS3 system settings.

I went out and bought a universal HD Component cable for ps3/xbox/wii, and it plugged in absolutely fine, no issues and went into the back of the TV perfectly fine. i matched all the colors

When booting the PS3 and doing a reset, it was running in composite/S-Video Mode, so i changed it to Component and everything went fine until i reached the resolution options. i have the following options

Standard ( PAL )
576p
720p
1080i
1080p

When selecting any other resolution besides PAL, the screen goes blue for a phew seconds and then resets, and it seems "Standard" is greyed out and the only resolution i can run. i have no idea if this is the TV or the ps3 at fault or something ive done wrong

and i have no clue if "Standard" is progressive or interlaced

But i will say this, i noticed an instant difference in image quality, lighting, and texture's, everything is much clearer. especially text

I cant find any info in the operation manual if this TV is capable of resolution's, but when changing resolutions on my Digital box it does change and run. so idk what to think

But, to be clear you do have it successfully running in standard? If this is the case which i believe it is, I think ti's greyed out because you are already running that resolution ergo ti's not an option.

576i, not bad, not HD but, High Quality

You've got everything hooked up correctly. It seems like your TV doesn't support any HD resolutions, so you're left with the default PAL.

Your cable box is probably downgrading any HD signal into PAL for your TV. If you are paying extra for a HD cable package, and don't have any other TV's in the house, you might want to get rid of that.

Thanks for all the responses

i dont have any problem with the resolution to be honest, its no big deal to me because the ps3 is just an every now and then gaming device i use, the only problem i had was reading text in alot of games, and the component cable made a HUGE difference in reading text, colors, and lighting

so now all those things are better. im much happier
