Default PS3 Plays Some Games In Standard Definition And Others In High Definition?

Firstly, Merry Christmas to everyone out there hopefully your holidays are going well for you. I've had my PS3 since this day last year and have been loving it, I just had a weird situation recently happen and I was hoping someone out there could help me. I bought Fallout 3 and it plays in standard definition. I have a 1080i Tv that displays pretty much every other game in high definition which I think is 720 for most if not all games? I just got the new Guitar Hero for Christmas today and it is also doing the same thing. Resistance 2, COD 4, GTA 4 all look great in HD but the other two are just basic standard definition. Any ideas as to why that might be happening and what I could do to rectify the problem?

haha thanks man that was it I never would have thought of that, I always have it checked but for some reason the PS3 was reset a couple months ago and I must have forgot to check it again.

I tried this once and i noticed that when i ran GTA4 is stuttered like mad, until i went back and turned the 720 option back on.
Does any else experience this?

I have all the resolutions enabled up to 1080p (I have a 1080p projector) so should I uncheck all other resolutions and only keep 1080p checked? Although I have not noticed any picture problems. All games look great.

if you unchecked all but 1080p, then games that don't support 1080p will be displayed at 480p
