Ok i bought a xbox360 recently and a samsung tx-2765 hdtv back in 2005. At first i thought the TV only supported 1080i and not 720p. But some websites ive looked at say it displays 720p and 1080i. But the back of the tv says 480i/480p/1080i. Anyone know about this HDTV or own it that could help me out?

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread. Any help would be most appreciated. :thumbsup:

Well, since you already have the TV, all you'd have to do is plug the 360 into it and test it out. Usually, I believe HDTV's tell you the resolution if you press an info button on your remote and since the 360 comes with a component cable (unless you have the core version), you'd be able to display those HD resolutions anyway.

I believe that if you hook up your 360 to the TV using component cables and set the 360 to display in HD, the 360 should also tell you what resolution it's displaying as well in the system settings.

Well...I'd certainly look for something a little more authoritative than an epinion by someone who may not know what he/she is talking about...for a valid reference regarding any hardware.

Well I'm not sure then, the reason I suggested the 360 was because it may be able to list the supported resolutions of your TV. I know the PS3 can because I have one, but there is also the problem like you mentioned that some PS3 games support 720p and not 1080i.

I'm trying to figure out what the stuff on that link means because the description says that the resolutions displayed require a supported resolution, yet it has 720p as a displayed resolution and not a supported resolution.

Still, if you are unable to find the answer, I don't think you would have any problem with the resolutions with the 360 because I believe it will automatically upscale games to the resolution you're displaying.
