Default College Football in 480p?!?

I thought the PS3 was fixed to where it would convert a 720p signal to another HD signal your TV can handle. My tv doesnt have 720p...so, College Football is coming in 480p? Do I not have my PS3 set up correctly??

somebody please correct me if i'm wrong, but i think that that only applies to BD movies. A PS3 game will only run at the highest resolution that it and your HDTV are compatible together with.

Nah it should upscale games as well.

Mine is set to 1080i. Thats the only hd mode my tv will support. Kinda puts a big bummer on the whole game playing in 480p....

You probably just have more than one video mode checked. Uncheck ALL video resolutions EXCEPT 1080i. The PS3 will output at only that resolution.

Tried that, too. Still outputting in 480p...maybe 480i. My dashboard is in 1080i, and when you go to the GAME tab (on the dashboard), and highlight NCAA 08, the background converts to a picture of Jared Zabransky, and its in HD. And the little video is in HD. When I fire up the game...no mas. Ive messed with my settings...no luck. Huge bummer. All my Blu Ray movies look incredible...I rented Fantastic Four...that was in HD.....

that's why i still think PS3 doesn't convert games, just changes resolution for BD movies . for example, my tv is 720p native and fakes 1080i. i 'check' 720p and 1080i in the ps3 settings, so the XMB and my BD movies are in 1080i, but when i play a 720p game like NCAA 08, my tv will change to 720p.

PS3 doesn't upconvert games to 1080p nor downconvert BD's to 720p.

with a recent firmware update you actually can downconvert to 720p, as long as your tv is 720p-capable and 1080p and 1080i are unchecked.

Which firmware update, because I've tried this and it does not work. I have the 1.82 firmware and a 720p/1080i set.
