    Hi All

    I have been running my xbox in 480p but I also switched on the 720p and 1080i modes.
    On my Panasonic AE100 I checked the input signal and it's showing 525p.

    According to my PJ manual it shows support for 720p and 1080i but I cant get the xbox to output these modes or I cant get the PJ to get these from the xbox.

    I tried connecting the xbox directly to the PJ and also via my amp(default usage) but neither will show a signal greater than 525p.

    Can anyone help with this?

    Thanks

    480P is the best resolution for this PJ anyway, 720P and 1080i will require extra scaling so the picture wouldn't be as good.
    I presume you are using the hi-def cable and running a chipped x-box in NTSC. If so, then as sirp says, it depends on the game

    Cheers for that chaps, Azzo yes your correct in your assumption.

    I am well happy with the (PJ says so) 525p pic its getting, just wondered if it could get better!
