I use my PS3 has my primary multimedia machine. Ever since I discovered the magic that is HDMI and the ability to upscale DVD over it I've been extremely happy with the big black box. I enjoy the picture and sound quality of Blu-Ray. It's an awesome.

When I first set up my PS3 I set it up with component cables since I didn't have an additional HDMI port. And then when I played my 1st bluray movie I was so disapointed!! But someone told me to get an HDMI switcher and connect thru that with a new HDMI cable. Once I did that, the tru beauty of bluray shone thru!!!

...with one exception. I would actually recommend turning 24Hz output OFF.

e3kehoe3590d ago

why??? sounds more like a personal preference.. I think that its better ON. ;p

If you have a TV that is 120hz and/or supports 24hz the you actually WANT to have that enabled. It removes the 3:2 pull down flicker and other issues. Please refrain from posting misinformation if you don't know what you are talking about or don't explain why you would even say something like that.
