HDMI Not Working

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My HDMI cable isnt working with my 32" Olevia TV. It keeps coming up as "invalid format". My PS3 works on the same TV with the same HDMI cable. Any suggestions?

Set the Resolution up correctly?

Perhaps the settings within the 360 in terms of resolution/reference levels/etc are at an unsupported setting.

Is your TV NTSC or PAL?

Try this:

1. Using component, go to your display settings and select 480i.

2. Turn off the console, unplug all component cables, and insert the HDMI cable.

3. Restart your 360 and let it load completely (you won't be able to see it, so just give it 30 seconds or so).

4. Once it has fully loaded, press the following directions and buttons with your controller:

You should now have picture and sound. You can now set it to whichever resolution you'd like (720p/1080i).
If that doesn't work, try this:

If that didn't work, this explains what was done in the first method so you can try for yourself.

The trick is to select "Optimal Resolution." The problem is that this option is only available whenever HDMI is used.

The 360 still works, there is just no video whenever using HDMI, so you have to go through the menus blindly.


1. While using component, set your 360 to output 480i.

2. Restart your 360 and wait for it to load completely (still using component).

3. Determine which steps you need to go through to reach the following: System -- Console Settings -- Display -- Optimal Resolution

*Optimal Resolution will appear at the very top of the Display menu (directly above 480i) -- this is why I told you to set your 360 to 480i earlier*

4. Unhook all component cables and use HDMI.

5. Restart the 360 and wait for it to load completely.

6. Go through the steps in #3 (blindly).

7. After selecting Optimal Resolution, you should have picture and sound -- you can now select 720p or 1080i (whichever you prefer).

These steps have been tested working fine on 232V

I'm having the same problem with my 360... but none of these solutions have worked.

1. Using component, go to your display settings and select 480i. (480i was not listed under available resolutions lowest I could go was 480p)

2. Turn off the console, unplug all component cables, and insert the HDMI cable. (did this step properly )

3. Restart your 360 and let it load completely (you won't be able to see it, so just give it 30 seconds or so).

4. Once it has fully loaded, press the following directions and buttons with your controller: (When using HDMI, the Xbox won't boot up until it knows what the TV is capable of displaying. Although the controller will turn the console on, it won't sync with the console — and it's not a controller or console problem, but just a symptom of the fact that the Xbox won't get to the point where controllers will sync until it can properly communicate with the TV.)

Input lag is not something you can fix without disabling filters the television uses, or using a new television. Many TVs don't allow you to disable filters sadly.

One of the reasons I use a monitor instead of a TV.
