Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

360 won't let me use HD display settings

Basically, I recently got a new PC monitor (28 inches 1080p compatible :D), and it has an HDMI input. My 360 is a premium so it has an HDMI output, so I connected the 2 via a standard HDMI cable thinking that would be fine. What happens is that the 360 works, but all of the HD options on the display settings menu are greyed out, meaning that I have to play in 480p. Now I have no idea why this is, as the monitor is DEFINITELY 1080p compatible (it even has a sticker saying so on the front lol) and if there's an HDMI cable connecting the two there shouldn't be a problem should there?

    I couldn't find any setting on the monitor to that effect. I had a look through before even posting the problem here, but no dice.

Have you set the actual monitor settings to 1080? sometimes you have to do that first. If it's not set first the Xbox will only recognize it's current settings.

I have a new TCL 55 inch smart wiffi ROKU TV what do I have to do to connect laptop so tv will be monitor wirelessly


You cannot have the TV as a wireless monitor for a XP machine.
Your ROKU TV will have HDMI input, but XP dos not have the ability to produce HDMI.
Using the composite input via a converter from the VGA output is possible.
see such a device here.

I bought a blueray player that only has HDMI out put but the older TV I have only has component input (red, white & Yellow RCA plugs) and an S-video input plug. Is there a cable that will connect


There are no cables that will do this. You will need a digital HDMI to analog (composite or S-video) converter box. The video output will drop from 1080p to 480i. Here's one option: http://www.gefen.com/kvm/gtv-hdmi-2-compsvidsn.jsp?prod_id=11402 . You will need the HDMI and RCA composite video cables separately. A cheaper version is here: http://www.amazon.com/Portta-Composite-Toslink-Converter-Blue-Ray/dp/B00GH92V8C . This one may need a power adapter purchased separately.

However, HDCP (high definition copy protection) will prevent you from watching some videos with the either of boxes. Most commercial Blue-ray movies have this Digital Rights management feature added to them. Some DVDs may be also have this enabled.

I hope this helps.

(unfortunately, the HDCP is written to block any viewing of content with analog monitors. You may be better off looking for a new TV or a PC monitor with an HDMI input. The lower end of these do not have speakers so you'd need PC speakers connected to the audio out on the monitor.)

Connect Dell Inspiron 6400 to VIZIO E601i-A3 60-inch 1080p LED HDTV using VGA Connector


When you connect the vizio try changing the resolution settings on your laptop to see if that makes a difference. Could be that your video card output is not really compatible with the higher requirements of the Vizio.

HDMI input says "mode not compatible"


If your Playstation is putting out the signal in 1080p then try changing it to 1080i and see if that works. Not all TVs are compatible with 1080p.

I have a Proscan 40 inch 1080P LCDTV (40LD45Q), but when I connect my computer to it, (GTX 260) with DVI-HDMI cable, it says the native resolution is 1366x768. Is Proscan lying that this TV is 1080P?


You can attempt to force 1080p to the TV by unchecking the box "hide modes this monitor cannot display" in the display adapter propteries, then try to select 1920 by 1080p, 60hz, 32 bit color, and see what happens. Post back what your findings are.

Bottom line for the extra connectivity and DLNA certification i would go with the
Bravia Z-Series KDL-40Z4100/B 40-Inch 1080pBecause if you connect this to your in home network you can stream music videos and music off you PC onto your TV without the need for extra wired or memory cards etc.

Otherwise if you don't need this feature the other options are identical on the other TV so it is just as good a choice.

Can't connect XBOX 360 please help!


How many video ports does it have? You may have to search through video 1, 2, 3, or switch the TV itself to component/HDMI depending, with the remote. Should be with an 'input' button.

My tv has a list with HDMI, SVIDEO, COMPONENT, PC, ect. and its a 1080p one, im just assuming all HDTV's have a list

Lcd montior with tv box but no hdmi sound


in some cases certain manufacturers say in the instructions that when using s video with seperate audio, you cannot use the HDMI for the sound and sometimes visa versa, it's just the way the output is set up. Remove the other sound cable you are using for pc or tv and just use HDMI to confirm that the sound is re-enabled on the HDMI
