I have an xbox elite with the hdmi outputs, I wanted to plug in my laptop which has hdmi to my plasma, so I uplugged the cable from the xbox and plugged in my laptop which displayed fine, but when I plugged my xbox in again to play it(just unplugged the hdmi cable from the laptop and put it in the xbox again) it said invalid format. I read earlier someone fixed this by resetting the settings of the xbox blindly. Can someone give me step by step directions on this please?

if it works the same as it used to (pre-NXE), then power on console Use controller number 1 holding the Y button the whole time, then pull or hold the right trigger until console restarts itself.

I have not tried this post NXE, and can't test since my console is being repaired.
