    I just got a MS high-def component cable to connect my xbox to my panasonic TH-42PHW5 plasma, throught the PT600 tuner

    Well, both 480p and 1080i signals work perfectly but I simply can't get 720p to display! I see a screwed up picture for a fraction of a second and then everything goes blank. (same symptom for 720p games or any other xbox app (xbmp, etc ...).

    My question is, has anybody successfully run a 720p feed through the tuner ?? I cannot believe the tuner doesn't support it ...

    What else could be the problem here ?!

    Could be the tuner don't have any 720p games to test it with mine though.

    I just had the tuner modified so that you can use the panel's VGA input while the tuner is still connected. And now this ??
    The more I use it the more I realize how crappy it is and sure not worth the 500€ ...

    Maybe I'll look for an xbox VGA adapter instead ...

    My dealer took it to a panasonic service center here in Brussels. I was afraid they wouldn't have a clue either, but suprisingly they did.
    Now no more messing around with cables :)

    I'm gonna ask them for the 720p thing. Really hope it's not the tuner.... aargh
