Hi guys,


I just bought a Sharp LC-36GS20 and tried to use connect my 360 using VGA HD cable + VGAtoDVI cable to the tv, but it says that input is not supported. Before this I was using Dell 24WFP and the picture was awesome.

I'm wondering why now I can't connect my 360 with VGA cable.

I have the alternative of using D connection, but it is sad to say that my new tv only support until D4. It sucks. So when I bought it, I was planning of using the DVD-I on the new tv.

VGA cannot be adapted to a DVI-D connection... if you'r DVI-I connection wont support it either, then I'd say you're SOL.

Thanks for the reply.

Anyway, I went through the manual and found out it it won't support 1980x1080. Dang! Now I can connect the 360 with the tv (it supports both digital and analog signal) but with lower resolution than 1980x1080. No full HD for me. Now, the 360 is connected with D4 connection, 750p, how sad.

So the only way to do 1080p on Sharp LC-37GS20 is to use the HDMI. It's not a bad tv by the way, it only sucks because no 1080p o n DVI and D connection.

Thank god 360 Elite is coming out on October in Japan!

the fact that you were only trying 1080p would have been helpful

99% of the TVs that support 1080p don't support it on anything but HDMI.

BTW google turns up 0 results for the TV model you mentioned.
