Default Ps3, Hdtv?

Hello everyone I am new to this forum and before I ask my question I would like to say that I did search google and then your forum (after finding the forum on google) but could not find the answer. Anyway, I am a real newbie when it comes to all the high-tech everything that you guys like discussing. Anyway, on to my question.

So I am probably buying a PS3 soon, but I do not know if my current TV supports the HD of the PS3. I hope someone can help me, and please bear with me because I do not have a lot of knowledge with this kind of stuff. Anyway, I can plug in 6 different things into my TV, but one of them says "HD/DVD in". From left to right there are the following holes, R-Audio-L, Y, Pb Pr. Below it says "(108i/720p/480p/480i)". Now what I am wondering is if I can plug my future PS3 into this and will it work? Please keep in mind I do not have as much knowledge as everyone else on the forum, in fact I think I have the least amount of smart with regards to HDTV's, HDMI, etc.

BTW, do the HD cables come with the PS3? Or do I have to buy them?

Thanks!

Hi Pete,

You'll probably be wanting to post your question in the Blu-ray Console forum. I'm sure they'll be able to answer your question there.

The one part I can answer is that there are no hi-def leads with the PS3, you have to buy them separately. From your description I think you'll need a Playstation Component Cable which will plug into those sockets you describe which will give you a hi-def picture.
