Just wondering, has anyone been able to get their xbox to play games in 480p widescreen or higher? I can get it to work if I run Halo 2 by loading up XBMC and then making that go to the MS Dashboard to change the settings. Only issue with this is since there are mods running, I can't sign onto Xbox Live, and I can't figure out a way to get to the MS Dashboard without loading up XBMC first. Is there any way to boot directly to the MS Dash so that it can save my video settings?

I just got a component cable for my XBOX to use with my HDTV which can do up to 1080i and am very confused on what to do after it is connected. If I go to the normal XBOX dash I can set the resolutions my TV supports (480p,720p,1080i) which I turned all 3 on, if I should only have the max my TV can do instead of all 3 let me know. After doing that I went to XBMC (with MC360 skin) and in the settings I can still only choose 4:3 NTSC.

I could really use some help. Thanks.

Sorry for the double post, but I found a solution to my problem found on these very forums.

http://forums.xbox-s...&...t&p=3937047

More specifically this part:
"HOW YOU FIX IT
This is easily cleared up by launching your default MS Dash while IN XBMC.
You can get to this as Stated : by clicking your right thumbstick in, and using the "dashboard" launch button.

If for some reason your XBMC reboots itself or hangs when you attempt to load your default dash:
restart XBMC, use your file browser, under your extras tab, and go to C:/xboxdash.xbe

Boot that up.

if that loads up your MS dash, mine says "live is not available",
navigate to your settings and enable the ntsc 480 720 1080 options...

save and cut your xbox off and restart and head on back into XBMC.
this should solve your problem.
This utilizes your Second or "virtual/shadow C" and "virtual EEPROM" and saves the HDTV enabled settings."

I followed those steps and it worked just fine. Awesome!!

I run 1080i wide and have had no problems thus far with video rendering. I have had no hiccups or memory issues on my 1.0 Xbox.

I use 720p in a Samsung Slim Fit 32" CRT.
The 1st time I got the xbox to a HDTV was in a Hitachi 42" plasma TV, then i tried 720p and 1080i resolutions.
Since then I preffer 720, 1080 fonts were too small even in a large screen tv.. and i always seen slow animations in 1080.
Now I saw that 1080i uses a lot of memory, that's the reason that 720p it's the most common resolution.

So i've voted

720p in 16:9

Using 1080i on a 32" LCD.

I've actually never encountered a video that won't play at 1080i, the only reason for me to use 720p is that the interface is slightly laggy at 1080i, and also some of the fancier visualizations lag a bit. However, at 1080i things like album covers and DVD covers are much sharper while navigating around, and little aesthetic touches like that really please me.

Sadly, since getting an HDTV, I found that HD resolutions break many of my favorite skins and themes. Oh well.

I'm using 720p on a 42" NTSC Sanyo Vizzon LCD HDTV. 16:9 aspect.

Just modded a Halo edition box for the bedroom (2nd XBMC in the house).
As soon as I upgrade the HDD....It will be 480i on a NTSC 4:3 SDTV.
When taxes roll in it will change to 32" 720p 16:9 NTSC HDTV. rolleyes.gif

720P, I found 1080i had too many memory/performance type issues.

Finally got an HDTV! Running 720p on a Panasonic 50" 1080p Plasma. Looks great. Animations were a little slow for me in 1080i.
