Component Vs. Hdmi On Hd Dvd Drive
Posted 07 February 2008 - 02:45 AM
I realize this is probably a dead subject by now but I couldn't get the search feature to work so hopefully someone could help me out. Today I picked up a HD DVD Drive to connect to the Xbox (Yeah its dying off but it was on amazon god box deals for 79.99). I have an older Xbox with no HDMI output. My TV is a 32" Toshiba Regza model with 720p max. Will there be much difference in using component and hdmi. Ive tossed around the idea of selling my current xbox to get one with hdmi. Will there be much improved picture quality for me? Thanks for the help.

However hdmi is far superior to vga, It gives you 1.1 pixel mapping so you will see a big difference also with hdmi you get more benifit from upscaling due to the 1.1 pixel mapping. I have a 32" lcd screen with hdmi vga and component and have used all 3.
I used vga on my old xbox360 set to 'expanded' in the options to allow for greater black levels. Then I bought a new xbox 360 with falcon mobo extra heatsink and hdmi.
The difference in picture quality is huge hdmi gives you a proper digital picture no change like in anoluge signals i.e vga, component.
Also a 32" lcd is huge you will see the difference from vga to hdmi trust me...

Had falcon mobo, Hdmi + extra heatsink next to dvd rom.
I got my new 360 to update from my old (vga only) 360 and dont regret it at all. In fact I made a nice profit on my old one so very happy
