Is anyone using a Samsung HL-R5688W (pedestal model) with their 360? If so, are you connecting with RGB or HDMI? What are your settings?
For anyone with similar tvs (this one is a DLP), do you have any suggestions? Currently I'm connecting via HDMI and outputting both my 360 and PS3 at 720p. The reason is that even though this is a 1080p display (1920x1080 native), it only accepts up to 1080i over the HDMI connection (1080p over RGB). I used to connect the 360 via RGB, but it looked washed out to me. I think the colors look more vibrant over HDMI, but I'm losing resolution. Would the (in)famous Post 1499 (1500) settings work on this model tv to improve my color levels over RGB so I can switch back to that for 1920x1080?
Incidentally, I chose 720p for my consoles because I heard that 1080i is capped at 30 fps, whereas 720 can go beyond that - and also that 720p would be smoother for sports and other fast action games, whereas 1080i might be choppy. Is this accurate, or should I be using 1080i over HDMI instead and letting my tv upscale to 1080p? Is there an advantage to outputting at 720p vs 1080i and letting my tv upscale to 1080p, or should I go with the highest available (1080i)?
Thanks in advance for any input you can offer.
