I'm just wandering, what gives the best picture on an HD screen? Im currently using component cables on a Panasonic PX60 but i'm wandering if i'd actually get a better picture overall via a decent VGA cable?

Any thoughts?
 
People get mixed results.

IMo give it a try, especialy if you use the 360 to play DVD's.

Watch out for xbox 1 compatability issues with VGA tho.

I get far better results on my pio 436XDE with componant. Mind you it was a madcatz VGA. Looked clear but terribly washed out colours. :thumbsdow

Is it true that with VGA, it upscales your DVDs? If so, how much better quality do the upscaled DVD's play than if they were played from a regular DVD player (not upscaled)?

Yes it does upscale DVD's over VGA. You should see a noticable difference over a non upscaled DVD player. I don't use my DVD player any more as the upscaled 360 provides a better picture.

All depends on your screen though.

Well the following will not work over vga for me:

Thief: Deadly Shadows (not based on the group in any way, a misleading sale for this buyer)

Halo 1

Forza motorsport (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, this one grinds my teeth as I still want to play it)

Call of chththululthu, or however you spell it.
