Hey guys, just got my slim today, can't think of a psn name yet so i havent gotten my id yet. But i do need to know do i necessarily need an HDMI cable to play in at least 720p, or can i use the standard av cable for now to acheive at least 720. The reason i ask is because at the moment its running at 480i by default and i havent gotten the hdmi cable yet so i'm really unsure about how to change it lol

EDIT Could someone also please explain this whole upscaling thing as well, i am a bit confused about it still

Mine automatically goes to 720p when my HDMI cable is hooked up (on my 720p tv). No idea about the regular cables, but I thought they were only capable of SD.

For HD, you need either a component (red, green, blue) cable or an HDMI cable. Also, what is your TV capable of handling? :o

As for upscaling, I don't know a good way to explain it...but here goes. Upscalers take Standard Definintion games/movies (480) and "upconvert" them to HD-sized resolutions (720, 1080). Of course, SD stuff is still "blown up" to reach HD size, but they can smooth it out to look as good as it possibly can. :D

Look for an opening exactly like the one that's in the back of your PS3 where you connected the cable... is not that hard, the cable only fits in 1 type of connector lol.

@DaDun... IF your tv doesn't have a HDMI Slot then its not going to run in HDMI. As for upscaling...... basically put a DVD in and start watching it, with the Upscaling option turned on in the settings and it basically looks a good bit better. Smooths out the image and basically it looks like HD TV on basic cable/sat.
