Well, I have an update. Called Onkyo Support and guy said that ONKYO receivers cannot upconvert 720p to 1080p. It can only go from 480i to 1080p. This does not make me happy and I dont understand. What is the point of having Video Component inputs if you cannot up-convert to 1080? This does not make any sense to me.
Anyways, my xbox 360 can only go down to 480p, not 480i. Tech guy told me that if I had a Composite cable (Yellow, Red, White), then that would automatically be 480i and I could up-convert to 1080 using those cables as my input. So I had to assign my input with "
" to use the composite. I then turned on the xbox 360 with the CBL/SAT input source. Still nothing, but a blue screen! Hmmm, let me try my old ps2 with composites to see if that will even work. I plugged it in and surprisingly the display comes on using the CBL/SAT input source. However, it does not look any better or upconverted than before. Anyways, the Xbox 360 will not even work using component or composite cables plugged into the receiver input. At this point, I am completely exhausted from the situation. Onkyo support doesn't seem to know what the problem is. I feel like they are just guessing with an answer whenever I speak to them, and it never solves the problem. I have come to the conclusion that this whole upconverting feature is nothing more than a gimmick. One of the tech guys even told me that the display will most likely look worse going into the receiver rather than plugging the video device directly into the TV. Perhaps the whole HD up-converting is nothing more than a marketing tool.
I guess I will just stick with my 720p and plug my xbox straight into the TV, and then use a fiber optic cable to plug into the receiver. Sigh.
