Default Need advice regarding PS3

Hey there,

I guess I plan to go purple this holiday season by buying one of the new $399 PS3s. However, I do want to make sure it will work on my setup. I have an OLD HDTV. It's a Panasonic 50" LCD 1080i. It does not have HDMI, only DVI and component.

When PS3 first came out I read that because of it's lack of a scaler chip, the PS3 couldn't scale to 1080i. Is this still true? Will I be able to play games and watch BD movies in 1080i on my set? If not, then there is no way I will buy it.

Let me know. I think this is the only issue I need to get past before I go purple.
