Hello depending on what type of input u use there is a switch on the cable nearest the cable end that is labeled TV and HDTV if you are using all five cables to connect the xbox then put the switch to HDTV, if you are useing the yellow, red, and white then put the switch in TV mode.
You should be able to get 1080i with the Input/DVI port or the component video in ports of the TV. I believe the easiest option will be to set the XBox A/V switch to HDTV and use a component video cable (red, green, blue) from the XBox component out to the TV Component In. (with the audio out going to your TV or speaker system). Turn on the X-box and the My Xbox > System Settings. Then Console Settings > Display and chose the 1080i.
Set the TV Net Command (remote) and the Device settings for the input jack in use (component 1/2). Adjust the A/V menu for the Display before playing long.
Wen you change inputs, you will see a status screen for the settings for the TV input.
Games are fine on a rear projection or LCD TV, it is the old tube type and the new plasma TV's that get burned in images and ghosting. Even they can be used you just have to be careful to select games that don't have a stagnant background that can cause a burned in image.
already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.
