got a 37" LCD today nad have a hdmi cable with it for my xbox 360. but doesn't seem quite right. it the picture on the games look quite jagged, almost like it needs most anti-aliasing if you know what i mean. i have it set on 1080i. would it be better to use component for my xbox. as i remember it yeilding a better pciture. but that was on a 42" plasma.

what are your thoughts?

Unless your TV supports 1080p, you should use 720p. 1080i is crap... Also, some, if not most games do not have AA on consoles simply because they would play to slow (I have a 1080p 32" TV, and it is jaggy with consoles, because consoles are not as powerful as computers).

Anyways, just remove the 1080i and go to 720p, and see what happens...

1080i sucks, just run it at 720p and if it still looks bad then post the exact model number of your tv and/or a link to it.

The 360's graphics just suck. It can't render true hi def it just resizes the image.

the graphics on the 360 don't suck, they looks great on my samsung 2693hm, just run it at 720p since there are no games that run at true 1080p all they do is up-scale the image.

Trust me, it is either the TV or the Xbox 360's fault (I would bet on the 360). You would notice if the HDMI was bad, because either the picture would be distorted, or odd colours, or you would not get a picture at all. I don't think that changing the cable to component will make any difference here, it is just how the Xbox 360 runs games.

Another option you may have, that I have seen people have luck with 360's is using the VGA cable on their TV.
