Question for JVC 52G787 and Xbox 360 with VGA.


I have the Xbox 360 with HD-DVD player. I have been using component to play Xbox 360 and watch HD-DVDs and it's been great. I've read that when watching regular DVDs w/component will only allow for 480 (?) as the max upscaling but VGA will allow up to 1080p (yes i know my tv is 720P) the thing is when I try using the VGA cable and setting the resolution to 1024x768 as per the TVs manual the Xbox no longer uses the whole screen and movies that normally filled the screen with component are using considerable less screen on VGA. I don't get it. I'd appreciate any insight.

Your TV is a 1280x720p (16x9) resolution. If you are sending your TV a 1024x768 resolution, the JVC is going to dispaly a 4:3 resolution and scale the image even further to reduce overscan since it believes you are displaying something from a PC.


So you're losing image due to aspect ratio, plus the TV is zooming in on the image to get rid of overscan. My suggestion would be to not use the VGA output of the Xbox360 and stick with component. Your TV will upscale the 480i image from the DVD to the native resolution of 720p. The JVC has a fairly good scaler. I don't think the Xbox360 would do a better job upscaling.
