I brought my PS3 over to a place that had a 1080P screen, but i forgot to set the resolution back to 720P before I brought it back to my house. I can play Standard DVDs just fine, but I cant get into the setup menu to switch the resolution back to 720P. Is there another way?

Found this out the hard way when I was moving gear around and had to re-setup the system.

Funny thing is, I've become intimately familiar with the 5-second-hold-power feature.

My living room TV is component input, and my bedroom TV is DVI (via HDMI). The living room TV is 1080i/480p and the bedroom TV is 1080i/720p/480p. I walk the PS3 back and forth frequently (when I don't want to disturb the others in the apartment or want to game natively at 720p). I always have to reset because changing from the multi-av out to HDMI yields a blank screen (as in the PS3 won't auto-sense the output or display resolution support).

Sad, since they're essentially using a PC video card, and most PC video cards can autosense when new monitors are plugged in instantly, and what video resolutions they support. And there's a much more limited number of supported resolutions for TVs than there is for various monitors.

Maybe in a future firmware revision...

When using HDMI/DVI, it detects what resolutions the set is capable of, not for component though.
