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?
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 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)
ive the oposit problem i want to play hitman which is 50hz game but im using a hdmi cable and it isnt possible to run it in 50hz , 60hz only i think so if you get the new hdmi cables it should fix your problem (if you have a hdmi port you should be using it anyway for the best picture)
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!
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.
I have it and it works great!
For all TVs, the TV have to be on fixed settings on standard, dot-by-dot mapping, noise reduction off. The camera's exposure the same for both side-by-side shots.
Just set it on standard and it should work...
