No, just 1080i.
I was able to get my hands on the VGA monster cable for the Xbox. I wanted to see if there was any noticeable difference in lag. I have to test out more games, but so far I Couldn't tell a difference vs HDMI.
The VGA actually looks pretty good after some adjustments. You Have to set the Xbox to 1360 x 768, then in the TVs settings for PC Adjustment you have to also change it to 1366 x 768.
Brightness has to be REDUCED to between 15 and 25! 50 will look blown out. And you don't have access to the black level setting through VGA.
Color bumped up 5 to 10 notches as well.
Other than that it looks great. I could easily be happy with it if there was an improvement with lag (or if upon further testing I realize there is).
Otherwise, the HDMI is simpler, and Should provide the better image, due to the resolution limits of the VGA. Although I really couldn't tell much difference in image quality between the two.
