Basically my 360 is now running through my pc 17" fujitsu siemens tft monitor.
The VGA cable i use to connect it up to , has a tv switch and a HD switch , which ever way i flick it , both work , but i can't really tell the difference between the other as the switch isn't labbelled HD and TV just blank. How can i find out if it supports HD?

What resolution is your 360 set to?
#2
all monitors are hd.

from memory the switch didn't make a blind bit of difference on my unofficial vga cable so I'd guess this is the same.

My resolution is
1280 X 1024
#4
thats in hd then.
#5
use the 1024 by 768 one that should be good

Why? It doesn't seem as good , monitor keeps sayng put in 1280 x 1024 for improved picture quality.
Great so is it worth getting a VGA to HD cable?
#7
You are confusing yourself.
The VGA cable is capable of HD.
1280 x 1024 is above HD.

Ohhh , so the cable i have is HD?
How do i set it to HD though on the 360.. Also i dont know which way to flick the switch for hd
#9
you've got the official one ?
#10
Somewhere on the settings page is a way to change your resolution. Have a look there.
#11
flick it to HD, then go into the dashboard; system settings, console settings, display, then HDTV settings.

you don't have to do anything the picture on your monitor from the xbox is already in hd.

the switch on the vga cable doesn't do anything.

It's not an official one no. It's a 3rd party one ..

then the switch def doesn't do anything.

You can mess about in the settings bit as someone else has already mentioned but when I used the vga cable I didn't have to alter anything. The 360 automatically set it to the best settings.

oh brilliant , thanks for all the help :)

make sure the display settings in the settings tab on the 360 is set to:

1280 x 1024 (this is not a widescreen resolution so i gather your screen isnt a widescreen one)
Standard
Expanded
