Problem With 1080p....vga (and Possibly Component)
Posted 02 November 2006 - 12:52 AM
Second, there is a white bar that runs vertically all the way down on the far right, and a thick bar of distortion that runs vertically on the far left all the way down.
I've confirmed this on my sony 24" trinitron fw900 widescreen crt pc monitor via 360 monster vga cable, and had my brother confirm it as well on his westinghouse 37" 1080p LCD via MS vga cable.
Piss, and i was looking forward to 1080p....i guess i'll be going back to 1280x1024 widescreen.
On a good note, they fixed the dvd playback so it is not so damn dark with really low contrast. The picture is excellent now. Blacks are black without the picture being too dark, and the contrast is great.

It should work fine with the 37w3 via VGA, when I had mine it had no problem accepting 1080p via VGA from the PC, and it's bigger brother (the 42w2) doesn't have any problems with the 360 either.
I'm actually reading reports that some people are getting the 42w2 to accept 1080p through component (even though specs contradict this), but I don't think 37w3 owners have had as much luck with it.

So it is definitely how the fw900’s handles 1080p incorrectly and not Microsoft’s fault here. It would be great if there were a 1920x1200 res for the monitors (fw900’s native res). I don’t understand why they could not add resolutions like this easily to the 360. A 1920x1200 and 1600x1200 should be a ‘no brainer’ for supported vga resolutions.

Found out it is not my fw900's fault after all. When via a pc a 1080p image on the fw900 there is no stretching or distortion. So it does indeed look like MS dropped the ball on this one. And do you think they will give 2 shits about fixing it? I doubt it.
