720p (1366x768) TV. Set PS4 to 1080p or 720p?

by SuperDerpBro Sun Jun 04, 2017 10:36 pm

Having the PS4 set to 720p would mean scaling the image twice, no?

PS4 set to 720p: PS4 scales the image down to 720p and then the TV scales that up to 768p

PS4 set to 1080p: PS4 sends out 1080p and the TV scales to 768p

What do my fellow plebs with ''720p'' TVs do? :mrgreen:

Wish I could help, but I think I never worried about it too much on my older HDTV's. I've been on a 1080 for awhile now though.

I've never owned a 720p TV.

My general assumption would be that the scaler in the console would be preferable though.

Of my TVs, one is a 480p CRT, one is a 1080i CRT, one is a 720p LDC, two are 1080p LEDs, and one is a 2160p LED. I've only ever used my PS4 on one of the 1080ps and the 2160p. Sorry, but I've never used a 720p TV for anything more than an emergency back-up that usually gets relegated to being used by a guest if I have a LAN party.

Just try each mode, the end result is not the specs, but what looks good to you.

On a side note, 720p is more forgiving then 1080p for the SD 480i upscale, though an HD 1080i CRT offers the best compromise.

Make and model number of your 480p CRT TV? I have yet to find an EDTV CRT.

I think it's going to depend on your overscan and screen size options. If it will give you a mode that gives 1:1 pixels (sacrificing a bit of screen at the edges and bottom), then 720p is going to be the right choice. If you can't do that, though, I would think if the TV accepts 1080p (and hold on to 60 Hz), then it might be better to let the TV scale it. But again, as someone else already pointed out, the internal scaler in your TV may be terrible, so I'd try both to see what looks better.

Also, I probably wouldn't use 1080i, since you're going to lose some framerate there.

Thanks guys. This TV seems to like the 1080p setting better.

Ordered a cheap 27in 1080p monitor.
