as many of us know most 360 games are displayed at 720p. some even lower-so given that you have a tv and a console that can give you the option to set the resolution at 1080p, should we? i'm thinking the answer is no. i also understand from other sources that doing so can cause more input lag(if any)than usual. i understand there are other problems as a result of doing this as well. i'm not going to get into all of the details as most of you already know. i say set your 360 to 720p and let your tv do the rest of the work. my A650 has been on 720p for a week now. my 360 hasn't seen those days since i had my Samsung LNS3251d(classic tv)


thoughts?

My 360 is set to 1080p. I have a samsung LN-T4061 and it's connected via VGA. I've tried both and I like 1080p for my VGA input. It looks sharp and kinda like a computer monitor.

Same here, Samsung (HLT-5689S) LED DLP, connected via VGA, set @ 1080p. No lag at all. Colors pop to me.

The 360's scaler is actually quite good, and better than what's in many TVs. Additionally, some 1080p TVs allow you to turn off overscan (a good thing with games) only if they're receiving a 1080p or 1080i signal.


So I'd vote for 1080p, in most cases.

Set it to 1080p. The PS3 WISHES it could upscale all their games like the 360.


And I agree with the 360's upscaler trumping most interanl TV scalers.

I have my 360 set at 1080p..why not? it looks great. The ps3 will not upscale games to 1080p for some reason, its a great upconverting dvd player and blu rays look great.


I still havent figured out why my ps3 XMB is in 1080p and then when I put a game in it goes to 720p

I got a Samsung 46" LN46A550 1080p LCD. Using HDMI with the 360.


I didnt think it would make a difference. But....looking at the red Back button where u change resolution, it looks smoother on 1080p vs. 720p. I havent really looked at the difference in games yet. But that lil sign right there should say if u have 1080p, use it.


These pics might help:



720p:

1080p:

Even if these pics dont really help, just change it and look at the red Back button.

Whether or not you should set the 360 to 1080p really depends on the quality of the scaler in the TV and whether you get a better image by having the 360 or the TV scale the image up to 1080p.


In my case, I have a Sony Bravia XBR2 1080p LCD. I've had my Elite 360 connected to the TV via HDMI and have had it set to 1080p since I bought it because to my eyes, the 360 does a better job of scaling the graphics to my TV's resolution. I've never experienced any lag and have played most of the high profile games (the sole exception being the Guitar Hero/Rock Band games as I have no interest in those).

1080p all the way, HDMI on a 52 inch Samsung LCD with no lag.

I think the TV is going to introduce more lag when it has to scale the image, rather than having the console scale it. Plus when playing games that are sub 720p you are having the console scale to 720, then the TV to 1080, and we all know that double scaling is not what you want.
