Default Sharkwater - 1080i on PS3 not 1080P?

I just purchased Sharkwater on Blu-Ray and when I put it in my PS3 it played the movie at 1080i and not 1080p? Anyone have any ideas whats up?

Anyone have same issue?

I also had the samae issue with Dave Gilmour: Remember that Night Blu-Ray where the film plays at 1080i

Anyone?

Thanks in advance

Default Maybe HDD is incorrect?

It might be a case where High Def digest is incorrect and that they are in fact 1080i discs, not the 1080p listed in the review/spec page.

This would make sense, as many shot on HD concerts and documentaries are in fact 1080i. This is because they come from 1080i camera sources.

The back of the Blu-Ray case says 1080p, very odd?

Anyone see that same issue?

Default Packaging / Encoding Error?

That is strange..... very strange indeed. Maybe there is something wrong with your PS3.

I'm sorry but I don't own the discs so I can't check.....

The only other things I can think of is that it is some sort of manufacturing error. Possibly in the packaging (like Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End) or in the encode (like T3: Rise of the Machines).

Very curious....

We've been discussing this issue in the 'Sharkwater' review forum thread. PS3's are having quite a few issues with the title that standalone BD players are not having.

Anyway, join the discussion over there and help us get to the bottom of these oddities!
