PS3 Blu-Ray issues

    Hi All,

    First of all, sorry if this has already been dealt with elsewhere on the forum.

    I'm having an odd problem with my PS3, which I'm running through a component cable (HDMI ports are busted on my 4-year-old Bravia). On Monday I played a Frozen Planet Blu Ray, and it displayed gorgeously in HD. Yesterday I put the same disc back in the PS3 to watch another episode and saw that the PS3 switched to 576p, which annoyed me immensely (I refused to watch the series on TV with the wife because I specifically wanted to watch it in HD!).

    I'm sure this has happened occasionally with Blu Ray playback before, and seems to be sporadic, regardless of updates, etc.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any work-arounds or ways to fix it?

    Copy protection over component innit.

    Some of the "p"s are getting jammed in the cables, try poking them out with a paperclip or biro.

    @CrispyXUK Is this specific to individual Blu Rays? I know for a fact it has worked fine in HD with other films I've rented....
