This works with my Xbox 360 Arcade which I purchased mid-2009.
What I have is the 360 in my theatre, which happens to be below our living room. The 360 is connected to my projector via component and via a long HDMI cable to the AV receiver upstairs.
To get this working initially, I had to perform the following steps:
- connect 360 via component only
- configure output settings for the projector
- shutdown 360 and disconnect component cable
- connect 360 via HDMI cable
- disable Display Detect option on the 360
- configure 360 for the TV
- power off 360, projector and TV
- connect both component and HDMI cables (it's tight, but I can make it fit)
After all that, I just have to remember to power on the projector or AV Receiver prior to the 360 depending on which I want to watch. Both can be on simultaneously, so long as only one input is active. I imagine this behavious probably partially depends on your equipment as mine seems to disconnect inactive inputs.
