Default backwards compatibility question on ps3

anybody know any idea why when I put in ff 12 on my ps3 on my hdtv the game isn't shown on the whole screen.

It is shown in a box that is not the whole size of the screen.

I put upscaling to full screen and it is almost the full size but not quite.

They'll all do that, ask RedRedSuit, apparently he fixed his problem via his tv setup.

Speaking of compatibility, has anyone ever tried any of the Resident Evil games with the ps3 and see if they worked and how well they looked. Especially RE4 on PS2, since its widescreen and all, Im wondering if the ps3 reads that ok.

If you play those same games on your PS2 it will do the same thing. Even in widescreen mode, PS2 games don't have enough resolution to fill an entire 16x9 screen so there will always be very slim black bars on each side.
