XBOX 360 Connected using component cables

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have an XBOX 360 connected to my vsx-1121 using a component cable. For some reason I can't get the XBOX to display in 1080p. Is there some setting that I've missed that is preventing this? I've searched the forums and can't seem to find a solution.

Thanks

Get HDMI cable. You will get 1080p after that.

You will get 1080p on games over component but only 1080i on dvd's and hdvd's. you need hdmi to get 1080p with hd-dvd's or upscale dvd's. Have you gone into the user settings on your xbox and changed teh display resolution. Try directly to you tv to rule out the reciever rescaling your xbox.



One other thing. make sure to set the switch on your component cable to HD.

Actually xb360 does support 1080p, according to Mircosoft themselves:

Okie dokie. If it makes you happy then the Xbox 360 does play may be 1080i, but I doubt it. A good example is Vudu movies. The highest resolution from Vudu is HD = 720p not HDX = 1080p. The new XBOX is supposed to be a full 1080p console. But just to make everyone happy the Xbox does play 1080p rolleyes.gif

Hey, I own two xboxes. The Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 Slim. They are awesome gaming consoles. I also own a PS3, and they both have good picture quality, but the xbox does not play 1080, and I remember Xbox saying this as well, and they stated that the new Xbox would play native 1080p. However, I don't know when this changed and all of the sudden the Xbox plays 1080p rolleyes.gif It is amazing how company do false adverstisement.

Yeah, the switch is set at HDTV. The best I can get is 1080i. I think it has something to do with the receiver rescaling the video. When I connect it directly to the TV I get 1080p. Is there any setting in the vsx-1121 that I'm missing?

While the Xbox 360 does support 1080p over component video cables, the VSX-1121 does not support conversion of 1080p component video to HDMI.

I have a xbox 360 S. In the HDTV settings you can put it on either 1080i or 1080p for games, and it does play them in that full HD res.
Sorry bud you're dumb:eek:

Sorry, you are misinformed. While it is true that Xbox mostly only capable of 720p or less for games, it is perfectly fine output 1080p in video player. I have 3 Xboxes for tv watching and all of them output 1080p video just fine.

Most Xbox games only have native resolution < 720p. The xbox simply scale whatever resolution to 1080p, not full HD.
