Cutting off the picture

I'm having a problem with my t.v. that when I am using either the HDMI port or the HD port for my xbox 360, the screen cuts off about a half inch of the picture on the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the screen. Usually its not a problem except when I'm playing certain video games that use menus located on the sides of the screen which end up getting cut out. I've tried looking through the options in the t.v. and dvd player or xbox but nothing allows for a full screen adjustment. any solutions?

 

Thanks, Eric

I had the same problem. The TV has vertical compression technology that maximizes resolution from widescreens sources (HDMI). You have to set the dvd player or xbox to the 16:9 setting even though you have a 4:3 tv.

I plug my xbox into the HDMI port and it tells me "Not Supported File" what does this mean?


i wasn't aware that xbox 360 had the ability to plug in with HDMI i use component cables. the problem could be your TV doesn't support HD and if this is an original xbox then it does support HD but the 360 should support it (this is assuming u can even plug it into tv with a HDMI cord)

Picture quality is not great on my hd ready lcd tv


If your console has an hdmi port, which sits just above the av port on the back of the console, you can use an hdmi cable this will improve the quality of the picture.
hope this helps.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Compatibility Issue with HDMI Switch?


anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.

Hi there

As far as I'm aware the only way to get hd with the older boxes that don't have hdmi socket is through component unfortunately.

Microsoft have indeed pulled a fast one with this and cunningly released the elite for more profit.

I think the only difference betwen component and hdmi is that hdmi has built in audio in one wire where as with component you require seperate audio.

In short, No. HD only via component.

Hope this is of help
