So currently it's not possible or not known how to do it?
Doesn't mr_ppp's method work?
Twisty - I understand what you are saying and trying to achieve. This is my pet peeve with the PAL console, Sony couldn't care less and I doubt they'll be adding 480p support as a choice with the ps3. Pisses me off and makes Sony look like they are still new to the gaming community or at least vague as to what gamers want.
I just don't get why giving the user an option is such a hard thing that makes it not worth their time. They probably thought that using 576 would increase compatability on TVs and bring the PS3 to a wider audience of SD users. But why they can't CHOOSE to use it makes no sense to me at all. They could have easilly made it default setting and then added in 480 for those who can take advantage of it.

Why they suddenly think that going back to 50hz was a good idea, or made any sense to be a feature of their billion dollar, all purpose serving, multi media system is truely baffling.
I think I mentioned before, it goes back to the days of the likes where Nintendo removed RGB support in the N64 because it was the least used video output on the SNES. What made it even stupider is that only NTSC consoles could be modified into using RGB!
So can anyone confirm that it's possible to make PAL ps3's to display 60 hz resolution on SDTV's with RGB cable by editing the xregistry.sys?
I really need this because i can't afford an HD tv yet =\
Why don't you try it out <.< Install a flash mount program, ftp or comgenie over the edited file, and post the results. :P
First I would rather try to get the opinion of someone that tried what mr_ppp said, to see if it worked for them because it's still a risk on getting a brick of my ps3.

There should be virtually no way to brick your ps3 by editing the xRegistry. 1) Doubt you'll accidentally change a setting you're not supposed to 2) even if you do there's a backup the the ps3 will grab automatically and if you deleted it 3) It's would be only a semi brick easily wiped by going into recovery mode and re flashing your firmware.
I don't know what editor to use, I doubt there is a "best" one out there. Maybe a more "complete" one that fills out what each option does but they shouldn't corrupt your registry file. Yes you can copy it with comgenie, but... I don't... *think* you can write it back without a flash mount. Probably depends on your firmware. I think if you jailbreak you can but if you're 3.55 CFW you can't. You'll have to use a flash mounter in that case as there isn't flash write access without one.
oh im on 3.55 CFW, sorry for my noobness, so it's still possible for me to edit it with a flash mounter? Can you recomend me one please?
So with comgenie I would be able to copy xregistry.sys, with the flash mounter I would be able to overwrite the file back on the PS3, is that correct?
By the way, it seems that Comgenie's has a blue and a red mode, the red mode let's me overwrite/delete everywhere
I'm using dev_blind. I think... it's supposed to be a permanent, yet removable, flash mount but... every time I turn off my console and turn it back on the mount is gone and it's using the old flash sooo...
Anyways I'd try it out.
EDIT: Also, just because it says you can write anywhere doesn't mean you can <.< I couldn't swap out the ps1 bios by just writing over it.
