Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Playing dvd's at 1080 resolution on my xbox 360

I recently purchased an Optoma hd65 projector to run my xbox 360 console through. The games will play at 1080 resolution, but dvd's revert to 420 x 60 resolution. I read elsewhere that possible solutions are purching the hd dvd drive or running the picture through a VGA chord, but I'm not sure if it is simply a setting I need to change.

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.

Wont play Games


It sounds like your drive has died. You will need to purchase a replacement from Microsoft or a licensed dealer. You can't replace with a generic drive as the Xbox uses proprietary firmware on them.
