    Having the above TV i have read that the pannel will only accept 1080p through the HDMI.

    BUT

    I was just flicking through the sharp website, trying to find out if a firmware update is out for the TV (and how/if it could be updated) when i came across this guide to installing a xbox360.

    http://www.tradenet.sharp.co.uk/files/Consumer_Electronics/LCD_Television/LC42XD1E/LC42XD1E964.pdf

    If you scroll down to page 5, although it states that you can only select 1080i via VGA/COMPONENT, from looking at the screen dumps it show 1080p being available.

    possible updates in the works ?!?!?

    well,thats the new install info(29.03.07) from them for noobs,and people who dont have a clue as to how to connect things.
    but,sorry to burst the bubble,but the 1080p option on that page is from the "fully updated xbox 360",not anything to do with the tv.
    if they do release a firmware,it would be good,but until then/if ever,i wouldnt get too excited.

    on the XD1E though,youll find that theres virtually no difference between 1920x1080i,and 1080p,with games,etc.
    it does have an excellent scaler in it,and does a great job.
