    Beko 32" HD ready TV runs PS3 at 1080i but 360 at 486 something...???

    Hi,

    One problem I am not able to figure out how to solve and why does it happen in the first place... I have a Beko 32" TV and I have connected my PS3 via HDMI which runs at 1080i no problem after I changed its resolution in settings....

    360 however doesnt display me any options to increase to a higher resolution and displays at around 486 / 476 something resolution....

    Currently I am using the same cable to switch between PS3 and 360 as and when I play.

    Please can someone shed some light on this problem?

    cheers

    You put it in HD mode?

    Once you’re plugged in, turn on the Xbox 360 and navigate to the System blade of the dashboard and go to the Console Settings. Here, select the Display option and choose the Resolution. The available resolutions depend on which cable you’ve installed.

    The only available resolution is 486 and others are greyed out... I am using a premium gold plated HDMI cable I bought from Play long time ago (cost around £10 in deals RRP £30)

    But the same cable gives me 1080i on PS3

    make sure you set it to HD mode on the side switch. Just as good as HDMI. Think there slight difference with blacks. I could set my new xbox up to HDMI but prefer the other cable.
