360 Frame Rates Same At 720p And 1080i ?
Posted 18 August 2007 - 07:12 PM
Also, will the picture look the same if I used the TV's DVI input or the HD RGB Component Input?

button or the "Info" button it either displays 540p or 1080i. Now I did notice that the 1080i looked better than the 540p. Oh and btw, the TV is Rear Projection so yeah it has those three CRTs in there.
So what about the 360 - Do I set the 360's output at 1080i or set it 720p?
Thanks for all the advice!

You will be losing quality on anything that would be rendered in 1080 however. There are a few games that have been released recently that do this, and all HD-DVD's are in 1080 as well, so you would be getting the best quality from those by changing your settings to 1080i when you need too. (if you want to, obviously)

I'm trying to say let the tv do the work, so your system will output a higher framerate with essentially the same image on the screen.

1080i is capped at 30 frames per second
720p is capped at 60 frames per second
you will never get any faster performance out of either signal type
looking at the specs of your set 720p is the absolute best choice to send to it.
Even if your TV was not 720p native... it's still a safe choice because thats what most games render to natively on the console.
If you output at 720p then most games wont use the Xbox 360's scaler. if your TV is 720p native then it wont use it's own scaler either.
if you output at 1080i or 1080p then most games will use the Xbox 360 scaler and if your TV is not native to those resolutions then it will use it's own scaler as well. This is VERY undesirable. Ideally you should try to use no scalers at all, and if you must you should try to use only 1, either the 360's or your TVs not both.
720p will provide you with a clean unscaled image which is the most accurate picture you can get.

your best output resolution would be to set your 360 to 1080i...
