Are you watching movies or playing games? 1080p is entirely possible through component cables, for games only.

If you are using component cables are they brand name ones or some crappy third party cables?

no its not. you cannot get 1080p through components. only through dvi or HDMI.

Could be the TV doesn't like 1080p over component. Component can carry more than 1080p but the TV needs to be able to display it. Cable quality or length could be a factor. Most TVs come with VGA input so I would get a VGA cable for the 360. That is what I use and looks awesome to me and will upscale DVDs.

For all the haters of 1080p over component:

after a google search for 1080p through component it seems there are a few TVs out there which will accept 1080p through component, but even fewer devices that will output 1080p over component.

and kmo_9000 i saw you're edit, and i would just like to say i said i think.

No, I have an Xbox 360 Elite and it comes from Microsoft with 1080i format not 1080p =( Which Sucks!! 1080i is ok for some movies but not for xbox, especially playing Call of Duty, Need for Speed, Halo, etc. I have a Samsung 1080p tv with a ps3 via HDMI and it looks great. However, if you have the Xbox through component with the switch on hdtv and 1080i, you will be pleased. Also, some say the human eye can only see 720p. Do you know the difference between 1080i and 1080p?

Im almost positive my samsung does, my xbox 360 is hooked up via component, and get 1080p signal while gaming.

Your tv this might not be the case, what do you mean by looks bad? how does it look different from 1080i?

Movies don't look the greatest on the xbox I feel, so if this is the case, it might be why....

from what i have read in the past few minutes, if you're tv does support 1080p through component the cable quality and length matter alot. i have read that you need good quality cables under 1 meter in length.

Where is your proof in this? because hdmi can support 1080p? totally a blanket statement

Honestly, after 2 or so years in the AV field, and it being and continuing to be a hobby... My experience has taught me that for a long time HDMI caused more harm than good in a lot of cases... Granted it does give you your 1080p via blu ray and HD DVD, something you cannot do over component due to the copyrighting and security associated with those formats. But it also caused many compatability issues, as well as image issues due to the nature of the technology, one is digital and one is analog, some look better one way, others, as it seems look better the other way.

Sometimes HDMI isn the solution, and Component is the best way to get 1080i signal to a tv set, especially in the case of something such as an upscaling DVD player... The upscaler needs to be good enough to handle it all..

Unless were talking a TV over 50-55" in size... your not going to see much of a difference...

720p vs 1080p on a 32-40 inch LCD, you won't really see a change between the two.... also depends on the native resolution on the display

This is true, unless in the case of the larger size you sit on top of the tv, then it becomes noticeable, even at 40" if you're sitting to close you may notice it.

The larger the set the more pixelated it is at the same resolution due to the screen size being larger. Having 1080p ehances the resolution, therefore smaller pixels... but I dont think this is the issues hes talking about. For there to be noticeable quality difference there is something wrong...

Are you sure you XBox 360s av adaptor is switch to HDtv where it plugs into the xbox, and that in your settings you are set to widescreen and what not?
