I dont know some of these methods arent workin for me for some reason.
I have a Sony XBR 60". I havnt got the latest XBOX live update, but i updated it not too long ago. I have the option to choose if my TV supports 480p or not.

That's messed up. To make Fable work properly, you require a broadband connection, even though it's not an online title? Whew. People bitch about computer patching.

No. The quickest way to update the Dashboard is to have a connection to Xbox Live. Many games have also included the updates (and I thought demo discs, but could be wrong). Fable--because it's not an online game--did not.
Fable won't play in 480p automatically on a very small subset of HDTVs. For everyone else--myself in this bucket--the game is plug-n-play in 480p.

I can assure you that every single one of these with a non-patched ***NEW XBOX*** dashboard the game will not display *UNLESS* the TV can support or otherwise resample the bizarre resolution that Fable is actually in.
There are also problems with other titles, some do not go away with the dashboard upgrade (panzer dragoon is one of them).
Some older XBOXes have no need for the patch for games to work in 480p, that is true enough, but your generalization or guesstimates couldn't be less correct.
Google it if you doubt it, this is becoming a well known problem with newer batches of xboxes.

i believe that what fell tried to say about your comment "on a very small subset of HDTVs" was that it implied that fable+480p worked on some HDTVs and not on others, as in... the HDTVs have the problem. This is not the case. The problem seems to be happening to some XBoxes and not others, independent of the HDTV.
I myself have this problem on my new xbox (v1.6) and NOT on my old one (v1.1). After searching through some forums, it appear to be a problem with newer xboxes only.
