Samsung LNS4695D 46" 1080p LCD
1080p via component -- WORKS!!!
1080p via VGA -- WORKS!!
But I did learn that this set does not accept 720p via VGA.
I have my 360 in the family room connected at 720p via VGA to my 61" Samsung HLN model DLP.
I also have it connected to the 1080p Sammy LCD in the bedroom via component at 1080i. I liked it this way as the 360 remembers the settings for each connection type it was last connected to. So, I never had to adjust them. When it was connected VGA to the DLP, it remembered 720p. When I connected it to the LCD via component, it knew 1080i.
So, I pick up a second VGA cable for the LCD. Quickly grab the updated 360 and take it to the bedroom for 1080p. Component was set to 1080p and the set quickly synched. VGA on the other hand was tricky as it remembered its 720p setting from the VGA connection to the DLP in the family room. The LCD was saying "mode not supported". I could not see the dashboard.
So, I took the 360 back to the family room. Set the settings to the lowest setting via VGA and took it back to the bedroom. Once reconnected to the LCD at its lowest setting, I could then get in the dashboard. Updated to 1920 X 1080 and the LCD synched right up.
Glad it works!
But, for anyone that is using VGA on multiple displays now, make sure that before you move it, to use a resolution that is acceptable by both displays before re-connecting it.
It is a bit of a p.i.a., but it works non the less.
Looks great btw.
