up till now i've been using the cable that comes with the xbox and connected it to my sony lcd tv. it allows a max rez of 1080i and the colours are a bit dull on it. i finally got round to getting a HDMI cable but even with that the max option is 1080i. i know that the laptop when connected to the tv can display 1080p... so there doesn't seem to be a problem with the tv or hdmi cable. is there some other setting besides the display options on the xbox? could this be a side effect of my console being banned?
