I just bought the HD DVD 'add on' today to take advantage of the free HD DVD's.
I have a 65" Sony 1080i HDTV rear projection (will be replaced with the Sony Black Pearl front projection within a few months)
My original, as in 2 year old, 360 is hooked up via component video and optical audio to my Onkyo 805 receiver which can relay 1080i and 1080p.
I must say I'm a bit disappointed. Upon hooking it up, I'm not getting any better picture on HDDVD King Kong out of the HD DVD add on than I did using the standard DVD on my progressive scan SD DVD player? I was not expecting 1080p quality, but at least 1080i!
Can I get 1080i quality out of this older 360? Or is it only possible via the newer Xbox's like the Elite or Pro, with HDMI connectors?
Any help would be appreciated.
