Hi guys
I own a LG 2343t monitor for my pc. I recently purchased a ps3 and connected it to my monitor using DVI to HDMI cable (got one from Dick Smith E) since the monitor doensn't have HDMI port. However, when I play games using my tv (which supports full HD and stuff) graphic looks quite nice and clear but when i hook it up with my pc monitor, eventhough I can set the resolution to 1080p in ps3's display settings, and play games it looks as if it's running on a lower resolution. Does this mean my monitor doesn't support true 1080p although it says it supports FUll HD, 1080p and HDCP?

According to the product manual the maximum and recommended resolution is VESA 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.

there are not many PS 3 games that use full HD or 1080, if you look on the back of the game case you will see that most games are 720 . out of my 20 or so games i have only 2-3 that use the full 1080 setting, so it doesnt matter what settings you use , you wont see them in full HD

I have Fightnight Champion which supports 1080p and L.A. Noire 720p but they both equally looks terrible on my pc monitor :(

Does you monitor have a way (where you enter the menu for instance) of telling you what resolution mode it's operating in?

The monitor definitely supports 1080p. However, a lot of PS3 games seem to be developed for 720p, which is less of an issue for Windows & Mac games.

Thaks for pointing that out. Yes it does and when I check it in the main menu it reads 1920X1080 60Hz
also when I run a game that support 1080p the monitor says 1920X1080 60Hz as well. and 1280X720 60Hz in L.A. Noire which supports upto 720p. but I don't see any big visual difference between the two. I guess my monitor is not capable of delivering clear graphics.

doesn't make sense. Go to ps3 setting and try everything from rgb without deep color or yrb (can't remember what it's called... The other one) with and without super white etc. also what options on the lg to tweak picture... Imafraid 720p will be crap due to pixel non matching

joker97: doesn't make sense.
+1, that doesn't really sound right.  Can only assume the PS3 is making some calls that aren't right for the monitor.

Perhaps try that hold the start button down till it beeps about 5 seconds later when you turn it on, resets everything so the new display could be configured differently?

Some monitors will scale stuff when supplied by HDMI, to make overscan so they remove all the cruft at the top that broadcasters have a habbit of leaving in picture. Check if there are any picture sizing options that are enabled on the monitor.

Also check the videro card drivers settings for this too.

That wont affect the PS3, only using a PC monitor with the stupid ATI drivers, but it can make the PC look like its delivering a full image on a 1080 monitor but its soft as hell because of the being scaled twice, and it makes cleartype just put coloured fringes on text. Seen many PCs working with that braindead ATI overscan setting enabled and black borders on the monitor in daily use because people know no better.

From the monitor's product manual, in the onscreen settings there are these settings that might be useful:

Tracking:
  • Clock - To minimize any vertical bars or stripes visible on the screen background. The horizontal screen size will also change.
  • Phase - To adjust the focus of the display. This item allows you to remove any horizontal noise and clear or sharpen the image of characters.
  • Sharpness - To adjust the clearness of the screen.
Flatron F-Engine: Movie, Internet, User, Normal or Demo
  • In the User section, one can adjust the ACE (Adaptive Clarity Enhancer) and the RCM (Real Color Management).
Photo Effect: Gaussian Blur - This option is to add the effect to the screen that the dark and sharp image becomes brighter and more blurred.
