    1080i or 1080p?
    What's the native resolution of your TV? If it supports 1920x1080 then 1080p is the way to go, if it's 1366x768 then choose 720p.

    Out of interest, would you call Wotsits (crisps), Whatsits? ;)

    Its just a case of trying both 720p and 1080i and see which you prefer.

    Simple - for games, set to 720p

    IF and ONLY IF your HDTV has a big enough panel resolution for 1080, AND you are watching HD-DVD (via VGA, then set it to 1080p/via component, 1080i)

    American TV is 480i, PAL/Europe is 576i, Shop DVD's playback at 576p on the XBOX360.

    I hope this is enough information to confuse you!

    If it isn't, myne= "mine"
    and "off 400" probably should have been "of 480"
