getting 1080p on my new Mitsu WD-Y65 tv with 360

post #1 of 2

hey all,

relative noob here. I am getting a new 1080p tv on Saturday. It is the Mitsu (WD-Y65). I have an Xbox 360 with the HD-DVD add on, and want to get all of the upscaling and stuff that goes along with the VGA cable. Well, the Mitsu has no VGA input, only a DVI-I port. I know you can a VGA-DVI adapter, but will this help? The specs (from the manual) on the TV over the Analog DVI are:
"analog and digital computer video (not for use with other audio/video products)
VGA (640 x 480, 60 Hz)
W-VGA (848 x 480, 60 Hz)
SVGA (800 x 600, 60 Hz)
W-SVGA (1064 x 600, 60 Hz)
XGA (1024 x 768, 60 Hz)
1280 x 720, 60 Hz"

And the Digital DVI has:
"digital video only
SXGA (1280 x 1024, 60 Hz)
1920 x 1080 (24 Hz, 30 Hz, 60 Hz)
WXGA (1360 x 768, 60 Hz)"

Will using the adapter matter? Will this TV be worth a dang? Should I bother with the VGA cable with this set up? Any advice will be soooo appreciated. HELP!

I am not sure if this will help or not. I have the Mitsubishi 65731 (basically the same tv as the one you are getting, only I got mine from BB). I just got the 360 for Christmas from my wife and had the same situation as you. I elected to just use the component cables and run it in 1080i (even though the tv is 1080p). The picture is amazing and I don't feel like I am missing out on anything. I suspect you will find the same thing.
