question about hdtv

i have this tv

POLAROID 46'' HD WIDESCREEN LCD
TLA-04641C


the inputs for my video (using the remote, hitting the input button)

tv
video1 (side)
video2 (rear)
video3 (s-video)
video4 (YPbPr1)
video5 (YPbPr2)
video6 (HDMI1)
video7 (HDMI2)
computer (vga)


so...

my cable box is currently hooked up to video 4. the cable guy did this. i was in iraq. we do have a HDTV cable box, and i watch alot of shows in HD. AWESOME! i never thought it would be a big difference, but it blows regular cable away.

anyways...

I currently have my xbox 260 hooked up to video 1. the side input.

I want to play 360 in HDTV.

can i play it in HD while its hooked up to video 1, or do i need to hook it up to something else?

what is HDMI and what is ypbpr?

i assume i should just hook it up to hdmi right?


never mind.. just figured it out. hooked it up to video 5 and selected HD on the xbox connector.

too easy

The side input is probably composite (yellow, red, white) or s-video, right? If so, you won't be able to get HD from those connections. You'll need to connect it to an HDMI input. YPbPr is component video (red, green, blue), which can do HD, but most devices wont send an HD signal over that connection. The major advantage to that connection is progressive scan (480p) and improved color fidelity. HDMI is better.

ypbpr is component


HDMI gives the best quality picture
DVI next
and then Component

If your 360 has a hdmi output, then but a cable and connect it to your HDMI input on the TV, if not you should connect it to the component in the rear (the yellow,blue and red cables and then red and yellow for audio). right now you have it connected to the side input which is RCA which has the worst quality. After connecting it to the component you need to go to your xbox settings and change the display settings from 480i to 1080p, this should give you the best possible quality.

As for your cable box, the cances are that it has only component and no HDMI. If it's component then you have is connected correctly.

You can do HDMI but the 360 isn't a true HD player but an up-converter. You'll notice no difference from using component or HDMI. The only advantage you'll have with HDMI is less cables.

you are wrong. There is a difference. Its very small but if you are running your tv at 1080p then why not?

also if using the component cables an audio (red and white, optical,etc.) has to be used as component doesn't carry audio.
