    So your 1280x720 (720p) games/movies are going to get downscaled to 1024x768. I would try and return that for a better model if I were you.
    I asked for feedback so i shouldnt be disappointed with your response. I understand i dont have the best of the best, but it also saved me 1000$ bones going with this model. Its also a pretty damn sharp picture viewing with the naked eye.

    your response makes me feel pretty bad about my purchase, but i understand what your saying. im just wondering how this sucker will look with linux text displayed. movies, are sharp maybe because of the contrast; but wonder if text is gonna suck because of the resolution.

    Not really sure, i had about 2500 budget, and initially was gonnna get a 2500$ tv, but then i started down the path of wanting a HD player or blue ray player; and since xbox doesnt have the built in HD player, i went with the playstation. I use to be a heavy gamer, but not so much anymore -

    i must say, im pretty disappointed with the fact we can't browse the home network as a standard. - i would say im not a linux guru, but im not a novice either. Work on lot on RHEL at work.

    honestly my top priority is browsing my home network. I havent researched orb or the other soltuion, but browsing from linux would be just as nice.

    Thoughts -

    Well if you saved a $1000 its definetly worth it!! Fact is you have a HDTV. I doubt you will REALLY be able to see any difference or actually care lol that your losing a few pixels here and there. Your still going to get super sharp high quality games and movies!

    Don't mind my comments I'm a bit of a techie freak lol

    At the end of the day your still going to see a massive difference compared to SDTV and for saving $1000 who cares about a few extra vertical lines!!

    Eternal, your LG42LCD is 1366x768 native. So it will downscale a 1920x1080 to its 1366x768 native resolution ?

    I have a HP Pavilion LC3700N with 1366x768 native and I have always thought that it was downscaling the 1080 into 768... Now, which model do you have ? 'cause many models from LG feature a native 1920x1080 resolution...

    has anyone looked at this guide?
    Configuring YDL 5.0 for the chosen PS3 video mode.

    Introduction
    The PS3 is both a game console and a computer. Game consoles traditionally output to TV screens, computers traditionally output to computer monitors. TV screens and computer monitors have very little in common. The PS3 can output to both, and can also output to High-Definition (HD) TV screens. Since this involves several completely different sets of standards, things can get complex. This HOWTO will show you how to make your selected PS3 video mode permenant.

    Boot configuration
    Once you have determined the video mode you find best for your monitor or television, you may make the change more permanent by editing your /etc/kboot.conf file, adding a configuration with the video argument you would like. For example, the kboot.conf file generated by the Yellow Dog Linux 5.0 installer provides four different modes:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    The above lines DO NOT WRAP. If none of these meet your needs, you may copy one of these lines, replace the label and edit the video=ps3fb:mode:# number. For example, to make a new configuration named myconfig that will start with mode 5:1080p:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    The above lines DO NOT WRAP. If you wish to make the the default boot, change the default=ydl line to read:

    default=myconfig

    When you reboot, it will use this video mode as the default.

    Graphical mode configuration
    You will also need to modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make sure that the Linux graphic mode works fine. Look for the Screen section and modify it to look like this:

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Card0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    DefaultFbBPP 32
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 8
    FbBPP 32
    Modes "1920x1200" "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x768" "1280x720" "720x576" "720x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 16
    FbBPP 32
    Modes "1920x1200" "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x768" "1280x720" "720x576" "720x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    FbBPP 32
    Modes "1920x1200" "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x768" "1280x720" "720x576" "720x480"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    This relies on the fact that Xorg will ignore any invalid screen resolutions, and there will only be one valid screen resolution at a time on the PS3. Note that this does include the WXGA mode, and while WXGA is a set of non standard resolutions, 1280x768 is the resolution currently supported by the PS3.
    If anyone can tell me what the default value of: Modes "1920x1200" "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x768" "1280x720" "720x576" "720x480" in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file in the above example, it would be appreciated. I have a sharp aquos LC-46D62U 1080P 1920x1080 resolution tv that i have been trying to get to display fullscreen in 1080p correctly. using the above example the bottom of the screen is cut off.... but i dunno how it chooses those mode values, and if it does based on ps3videomode -v #

    acutally, i just got it displaying 1080p in full resolution. i was reading the YDL forums and came across a link that said to remove the modes line for the Depth 24 section so it looks like the following:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    the guide i found said this forces it to use the resolution set by video=ps3fb:mode: 133 in the kboot.conf

    dunno the reasoning behind it all, but it worked for me. i've got full 1920 x 1080 now w/o any borders or cutoff
