This is a very gaming related question as I'm asking because I have my PS3 connected to a Full-HD TV set but I'm not seeing any difference compared with my other TV set, which is a not Full-HD capable TV set. Both display the very same information when switching resolution: 1080@24.
The smaller TV set is a Samsung 26" (HD) and the big TV set is a Samsung 32" (fullHD).
Edit: The question is not about my Full-HD being unable to display 1080p. It is about my not-Full-HD being able to display 1080p. When I use my Samsung 26" it says 1080p. I also tried a non-Full-HD Samsung 50" and it also says 1080. My setup is: PS3, HDMI, Gran Turismo 5 (or PS3 menu). My Full-HD was expensive compared to a comparable non-full-HD TV. So the question is:
Why my non-Full-HD TV display is capable of 1080? What is the difference with a full-HD TV set?
