Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

I'm running 720p on my 360, because it's clearer than the 768p PC Mode. But 720p Overscans the picture which makes it larger. Any way to fix this?


If you are using the Component Cables make sure the switch on the cable(part that you insert into Xbox 360) is set to HDTV and not TV because if its set to TV, no matter what resolution you choose it will go back to 480i.

If your using HDMI cable make sure that your TV is also outputting at an HD resolution. Like okay let me explain this more clearly I'm not sure on Sony HDTV's but we have a 46" Sharp Aquos HDTV LCD. I found out that the TV itself was still set to output at 480i even though the Direct TV receiver was set to HD so I went to my TV's options and changed to output the TV at 1080i then after that everything was clear because both the receiver and the HDTV was outputting at HD.

That maybe your problem. If your 360 in the settings menu is saying its at 720p and your TV still looks long, maybe your TV's Zoom options are set to Stretch or Zoom, so basically you need to change your TV's options to output at Normal.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I cannot connect my pc to the TV using VGA connector. No display.


The first thing to do is to bring down your PC desktop resolution to 800 by 600.
The TV's VGA input does not support high resolution so you have to bring it down,.
Right click on the desktop / click on properties /click on settings / drag the screen resolution tab to 800 by 600 / click apply / click OK and then Turn on the TV. Once you get an image try increasing the tab to the next highest resolution till the image disappears from the TV. Go back one step and apply that setting . Thats the native VGA resolution of your TV.

Messed up hdd settings, blue screen when i hook it up to my tv.


Yea,

You could try a different LCD TV, and use it to set it back to its old settings. Or try using the composite (yellow connectors from 359T output to video in on tv) then switch the tv to video input on remote, which should allow you to at least see the menu to change the resolution back to something your LCD will work with.

HDMI Problem


ok i think you need to reset the video settings here is a step by step procedure which you can follow

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn on the console by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Wait for the guide light to indicate that the controller has linked to the console.

    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is indicated by the upper-left quadrant light on the console.
  4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button as you pull the right trigger.

    Note This action causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings. The console then automatically restarts.

No sound with HDMI cable and Xbox 360


FROM THE TOSHIBA MENU, (FIRST MAKE SURE YOU ARE SET TO
THE HDMI PORT THAT THE XBOX IS PLUGGED INTO) THEN SELECT
HDMI SETTINGS, UNPLUG HDMI CABLE FROM THE TOSHIBA TV (LCD
FLAT, MINE IS A 42") WAIT FOR THE SETTINGS TO HIGHLIGHT OR NOT
BE GRAYED OUT, THEN TURN OFF THE THREE SETTINGS, FOR COLOR
AND LIP-SYNC., SCROLL DOWN AND PRESS THE RESET BUTTON,
WAIT FOR MESSAGE TO APPEAR. TURN OFF THE TV AND PLUG IN THE XBOX.
TURN EVERY THING BACK ON. SEE IF IT WORKS.
NOT ALL CABLES ARE THE SAME AND NOT ALL TVS ARE THE SAME.
READ THE TV OWNERS MANUAL CAREFULLY, (RTFM), I FOUND A NOTE ABOUT
THESE SETTING ON THE SPECIFICATIONS PAGE.

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.
