ApEx Posted March 3, 2006 Share Posted March 3, 2006 I recently hooked up my Sony 60" Grand WEGA and setup the surround sound and such. I tried playing a DVD using my Xbox 360 as a dvd player. Well when the DVD started playing it looked really bad so I checked the format and it was only playing the DVD at 480p. So I figured that I cant play DVD's on HDTV with the XBOX. So I go out and buy a Samsung DVD player from bestbuy costing $100 dollars. The box says outputs in 720p/1080i Digital. So I come home and hook it all up, setup the DVD player so it outputs in componet. Run the DVD and same problem. Instead of playing the DVD in 480p though now it is playing in 480i, EVEN WORSE. I check the setup on DVD player again and it will only let me change the format to 720p or 1080i if im using a HDMI cable. So for me it is looking like I cant get good quatily unless I use HDMI, I dont understand that though because I see HDTVs all the time playing DVDs good in using componet. Please if anyone can help me here it would be greatly appriciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
