Xbox & HDTV ???

anyone have their xbox runnign in HD?

i got a used xbox... (i plan on modding soon ) anyways.. I also got the M$ HD AV pack... but it is not working on my TV, my TV is new but I have never actually hooked anything up to HD...

anyways... When the xbox is hooked up to the componet video it works fine. When I switch it over to the HD Componet it gets no signal.. i can tell my tv to search for a signal but i get a quick scrambled screen.. then it goes back to no signal.

on xbox.com it says to setup HD.. go to settings, video, set 480p to yes, after setting it to yes on the first controller hold the two triggers and click the left and right thubsticks. the screen will go balck and then switch to 480p mode.. mine never goes black???

any ideas??


Thanks
Trey

change all the choices to yes, not just 480p

480p yes
720p yes
1080i yes

thats what I have it set to but the dashboard will not display (neither will DVD's ??)

halo looks good on 480p though

DVDs are recorded in 480p, not HD. Progressive scan is about all you're going to get out of any DVD player. HD scalers usually cost about 3X what an X-Box costs by itself

basically what I meant by the do not work in HD... is that witht he xbox hooked up under my HD input, when I play a DVD the signal is gone.. so if I want to use the xbox as a DVD player replacement I have to hook it up through the composite inputs and not the HD... which sucks

Something isn't right, there is no reason why it shouldn't play on the HD input. Try playing with the different output resolutions in various configurations and see if one of them work. I know Tony Hawk:Underground has issues if the settings are off at all. It is in "HD" and plays nicely once everything is set properly. Goodluck.

no softmod yet.. I need to get the 4920 dashboard installed... I have everything needed... I even have an article that tells how to image the drive so you can put in a bigger drive with the softmod... if the softmod doesnt work as I want it too I will get a mod chip

I do have the M$ DVD pack. but like i said.. it works fine on composite, but under the HD the tv gets no signal when playing a dvd. I got all the games and dashboard to work under 480p, but no go on the DVD's.
