    I have my 360 connected up to my 360 via a DVI -> HDMI cable, so the dvi goes in my TV and HDMI goes in the 360. The audio is the original 360 cable, which come with the 360, with only red and white in the audio side of the TV and then the other side of the cable is plugged in the 360.

    When I power up my 360 the TV says 'DVI 1280x1034x85' and on the screen setting menu it says '1920 x 1080, Widescreen, Expanded'


    What Display resolution am I getting? (1080p, 1080i etc)

    EDIT I looked at this image on wikipedia and it says I'm getting HD 1080 is that correct?

    Does your TV have 1080p first of all? It sounds like the TV has a lower than 1080 resolution.

    Another possibility is that your TV does not support widescreen through DVI, as 1280x1024 is a 5:4 resolution

    But to answer your question, you are getting a 1080p signal which your TV is displaying at lower than 1080p/

    In the instructions booklet, at the 'Connecting to sources with dvi output' it says the TV supports:

    576i, 576p, 720p & 1080i

    In dashboard options you can check which resolutions you want to use. Uncheck 1080i/p because if your TV doesn't support 1080P, 720P is the next best looking IMO.
