This doesn't mean that it's Microsoft's fault. They could have tested the 360 with all the Sony sets. If the tv doesn't accept a 1080p signal via component or has underscan via VGA that's the TV's manufacterer's fault. The 360 is outputting the 1920x1080 resolution signal Microsoft said it would on the outputs Microsoft said it would.
There apparently are some TV companies that got it right with the VGA input. Sony didn't. But the problem with even having a 1080p issue is that it really only applies to a very, very, small market. Very few people own a 1080p set. Even less who own that 1080p set also own a 360.
At this point, just be happy you are in the few that even have the option to enjoy 720p/1080i HD.
