Panasonic th42pz70 and 360 hd dvd player -please help!


Established Member
hello there

i am new to this forum and need some help on the following matter.

i have recently purchased a panasonic viera 42pz70 and also a 360 hd dvd player. was wondering what kind of cable i would require for the hd player to work. the tv says component but i have read that you cant get a full hd resolution with component and instead it downscales the source to match the cable. could i use the official xbox 360 vga cable to connect to this tv? how would i get a 1080i/1080p picture?

i have the old premium xbox 360 not the elite with the hdmi if it helps.

i would seriously appreciate any info on this. thanks for taking the time to read this

Either sell/trade the 360 for a new Premium/Pro or Elite, or accept you'll have to watch at 720p/1080i over Component.
You could do it this way for a while until maybe the funds are available once again to change the 360 to an HDMI version.
