Can I get 720p with the standard av cable that came with the ps3? I have a Sony KLV-30hr3 (LCD) televison it has a resolution of 1280x768 only no hdmi input. It has a av, scart and s-video input. Thank you.

i think you can only get SDTV (480i) from those cables, if your TV has component inputs then you can get at max 1080i, i think

Only if his TV has component inputs. He didn't say there were component inputs on his TV.

Well my standard av cable gives me 576i picture resolution.  I'd probably bet that this would be the highest you can go before component, HDMI etc.

All cables and their respective maximum resolutions are listed in the manual if you'd like to see them all.

get hdmi cables, it runs up to 1080p and component cables runs up to 1080i.

The included cable is called composite cable, it supports up to 480p on games.

note that i is interlaced and p is progressive.
