I have bought a HD Cable from 7dayshop and plugged it into my xbox.

I then go onto settings and it only lets me pick 480p and it won't let me select any others. My TV supports others and it is HD.

Anyone have a clue why?

Thanks

Xbox settings from website.

Check the side of the plug which goes into the Xbox 360. There should be a little switch which says TV/HDTV.

Make sure it's set to HDTV.

Are you using component?

Just make sure you are connecting the correct cables. The yellow one should remain unplugged.

I am not using the component cable. I am using a HDMI Cable.

Well if you are using a normal HDMI cable then I guess you don't have any switch in the cable.

If you are not getting any other option the only thing that I can think of is the TV. But even so in that case the XBOX should allow you to change the resolution even if this does not work.

Have you got the latest dashboard of the XBOX 360, it might be worth to try that and see if this helps

If you're TV has HDMI then by HD Ready standards it should give you options up to 1080i (at least).

It might be a handshaking issue and restricting you to 480p. Try this:

Turn off your TV (unplug from the wall).

Turn off the 360.

Turn ON the 360.
Turn ON the TV
(in that order)

Done that, hasn't changed.

1. What's the model number of your TV?
2. Have you another HDMI cable you can try?
