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?

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360
Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.
Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.
Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.
Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.
Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.
Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.
Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.
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.
Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.
1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p. The HDMI cable
is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI
converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors: The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor. The
maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The
PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to
the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes
are supported. The maximum resolution programmed into the source
material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for
information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable
instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation.
This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular
HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables
at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial
cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from
the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your
display and speakers.
