I've just bought a component cable for a recently acquired second hand core model 360 (no Harddisk) with a manufacturing date of May 2006 to try and output a hd video signal to my Hdtv.
If I go into the video settings of the dashboard, I can try and select every hd setting there is (720i, 10801, 1080p), but the image will always switch back to 480i! . My hdtv can except any of these signals and I have connected the component cable to the correct colored inputs.
For a short moment, after selecting 'yes' in the selection window to try and keep the configuration, I can see the screen in hd, but it quickly reverts back , it says something like the cable is set in tv-mode.
The component cable doesn't have a switch to choose between sd(tv) or Hd, so my question is, is there a way to force hd output out of a component cable that doesn't have the switch between modes?
I think it is strange that for a short moment, flash of a second, you can see the image in a higher resolution, maybe there is something I can do in the xbox preferences? Could it be the problem exists because it is an old model? I hope someone has seen a similar problem here and can direct me to a possible solution!
