    My television is 1280 x 720p. I'm not to sure what the HD resolution is for PS3, Blu-Ray. But I figure if it is anything under 1280 x 720p then I am getting the maximum quality out of HD as possible. If HD is anything over 1280 x 720p I'm not getting the full potential of HD.

    I think i read that Blu-Ray is 1920 X 1080

    Can anyone help solve this?

    You are correct.Blu-Ray along with the PS3 will run 1920 X 1080P which means the highest possible picture quality.If you have a TV with anything under this resolution then you will not be getting the highest quality resolution.

    I don't think I have yet seen a TV that is 1920 X 1080P. But I'll keep an eye out at buying something with higher resolution later in the year.
    Thank you

    There are a couple of T.V.'s out there that display full HD like Sony's SXRD Projection TV line. Another company that is displaying Full Hd is Samsung and there line od DLP TV's. Look around bud they are out there and have been out there for around 6 months.

    Dvd's have a resolution of 720 X 480 so you see Blu-Ray and Hd DVD will be a big improvement as far as resolution goes.Another thing is that both Blu-Ray discs and HD DVD discs can hold more data than a regular DVD disc can.

    This format will definetly take off. Nearly everyone I know has a large (100cm + HD TV). The buzz around this format should be much larger then it is, but I guess they aren't really promoting it at the moment. It's 6 times better quality, I think once it is released and people can sample it for themself it will take off in popularity. I'm already on the bandwagon for it and will be first in-line for picking one up. I'm sick sick sick of seeing pixles and badly distorted backgrounds because my tv is so large. I did regret spending $4000 on my TV and should habe got a much smaller one so the DVD image wasnt blown up in resolution. That 720 X 480 is perfect for a 68cm TV but isn't enough for a 140cm TV.

    I so can't wait to have a true cinema experiance at home.

    Thats why DVD upconverters are so popular, they make small screen images look good on big screens (As long as the set is digital).

    But right now, 1080p isn't the best format, as it can only display at 30 fps. When 1080p60 becomes realistically possible, then it will amazing, but right now 720p is the overall best HD format.

    Thats not all true. Movies are shot ar 24fps. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD movies are 1080p@24fps. It is that rate because its suppose to be. If you think a movie in 720p@60fps is better than movie in 1080p@24fps then thats just your opinion.

    I'll definitely agree with you there, movies are better at 1080p24 than 720p60 or 720p24. However, I watch more sports and play more games than I do watch movies, so 1080p isn't the best format for me now. When it actually becomes possible to get content running at 1080p60 natively, I will be very happy. Even if you watch mostly movies, it's probably better to hold off for a while on a 1080p monitor.

    I was reading some interesting stuff on blu ray this morning. The discs will have a storage capacity of 27gig!(single sided) and approx. 50gig(dual layer), respectively. this represtents the same king of storage jump previously seen by going from CDR to DVDR and need I mention what a popular format DVD has become. The biggest video file I've played so far was the matrix in HD. It was 1280x768 and needed almost 8gigs of my hard drive! They'll play in 1080p if you have a tv that supports it and the players will probably support very high resolutions (1920+). My question is will you be able to get blu ray-r soon because I'd love to get my hands on a burner.

    That's the s#*$hitty part the stuff will be real x-pensive at first. I just saw some prices on Blu ray recorders. 500$USD for the cheapest one and 1000$ for the pricier ones. Blu ray media yeah its like 15.00$ for one blank disc. But to be fair 9 of those discs is rough equivilent of one of my hard drives.

    Most of my games on PC in the past have been 4.7 gigs and under but lately (F.E.A.R and Tomb Raider) these games are 8 and 7 gigs respectively so yeah games are starting to get huge but mostly for video for instance some of my IMAX videos are like 3-4 gigs for 30-40 mins of HD material. So if you wanted LOTR Extended Edition (4 hours long!) you could be getting into the twelve gig range for a movie soon.
