Can't get XBOX 360 to display 1080P on my new 42 inch LED tv?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I went and picked up a new 42 inch panasonic LED TV today. I get home and hook up my XBOX 360 to try out how the 1080P looks when ?I hit a problem?
I am only able to select 1080i even though 1080p is able to be selected. When I click on 1080P the screen goes black for about 4-5 seconds then the Res drops back to 1080i? I am using the component XBOX 360 cables which are supposed to be able to support 1080p right? I get 1080i or 720P to work, But no 1080P!!!!
What am I missing guys. i looked all through the TV's settings but no luck on any settings relating to 1080p settings.
The model of my TV is
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/...298b24b23een02

Please can someone help me sort this out. I have been waiting a long time to finally see my XBOX 360 in its' full 1080P setting. What am I doing wrong.

You need to use an HDMI cable to use 1080p due to HDCP.

yes, component doesn't support 1080p

HDMI is the only way (unless you set 720p and let your tv scale it which is basically what the xbox is doing internally)

Because HDMI was invented for 1080 due to bandwidth issues. The signal in the cable degrades over distance so to keep things looking good, the resolution is limited. Such is the nature of analog signals.

Well when i hook my xbox 360 to my 24 inch computer LCD I am able to set the res on the XBOX 360 to 1080P using a Microsoft VGA adapter? And It runs it fine and it looks great. So I know i don't only have to have a HDMI cord to get 1080P out of an XBOX 360. But I just tried hooking up my XBOX 360 to my new tv the same way using the VGA adapter and I can't get any signal at all?
Man this is really pissing me off. How is it that I can't use my VGA adapter on this TV when clearly there is a slot for it on the back of the TV. And in the input section there is a PC setting?? But I get nothing when I hook it up that way, Anyone tried this method of hooking a XBOX 360 to a TV?
Cheers and thanx for the replies so far people.

It should work with the VGA adaptor as well as an HDMI cable. Have you tried a different resolution via the VGA port?

Reading the instruction manual for your tv, it states "The maximum resolution: 1,280 × 1,024
If the display resolution exceeds these maximums, it may not be possible to show fine detail with sufficient clarity"

Im wondering if the resolution being outputted is too high for your TV, even though it says it will only effect detail and clarity.
