• Making my Xbox display at 1360x768?
    31 replies, posted
My monitor's resolution is 1360x768. My xbox only wants to display at 1280x720 which is fuzzy. 1080p is also fuzzy. Can I make it go to 1360x768? All it says at resolution settings: 480p - Standard definition, too low for my screen 720p - Lowest HD resolution, too low for my screen 1080i - High HD resolution, too high for my screen to clearly show. My screen fakes it and it looks all weird. 1080p - Same as 1080i.
Unfortunately for your case the Xbox360 will only display at the resolutions you have provided in your post. Does 720p stretch to fill the display area or does it have black bars on the outside so it stays true to being 720p? From you saying it's fuzzy I'm willing to bet that it's either stretching or something isn't quite right with your monitor. Can you find any settings in your monitor's menu that would have anything to do with the resolution auto-stretching?
It's maximum resolution is 720p anyway. It can only scale up to 1080p/1080i from personal experience.

My thoughts are that it's trying to emulate a higher resolution than it could display. That technically shouldn't be possible but who knows, might be a fail-safe measure or something. Then again, I can't remember if it was interlaced or progressive.

If you don't have the option to change the display format in some menu on the screen, you probably can't.
I have studied the HANA-ROM before, which is the firmware that controls the scaler chip. The resolutions are hardcoded to the predefined ones, and there is no way to use an alternative resolution.
fffffffffffffffff
My TV is the same resolution I just use 1080i.
my tv has the same resolution too, I don't experience your problems and it's displaying at 720p. without letterboxing
Use a VGA cable.

I'm using a VGA cable but it only gives a few set resolutions. A few sample ones are 1024x786, 1280x720, 1280x1024, 1400x900, 1650x1050, and 1920x1080. My monitor is 16:9, and its native resolution is 1600x900. For some reason whenever I use anything except for 1280x720, I get these ugly black letterboxes and fuzzy pixels.
Oh wait, I'm pretty sure that one of the options for VGA is 1360x768. It works pretty well for me.
I have an xbox360 running on my sony bravia bx2, at 1360x768. I have a 3rd gen 360, and its hooked up by simply an hdmi cable, you dont need to buy the fancy xbox $60 cable. Also, make sure u change your system settings in xbox to 720p resolution.

Also in the screen resolution options it has 1360x768 listed so you can go to that res. Seriously get one if you want a perfect display image.
1360x768 is apparently cheaper to manufacture than a straight 720. Just use 720. It should scale it well enough.

It's not going to get better than this, chances are it can't even do pixel mapping and only takes 720p. Get a better TV if you don't think it's good enough.

You only get those choices? What cable are you using right now? With the HDMI cable I'm also getting the option to use 1440x900, 1280x1024 and 1024x768.

Use the HDMI cable on your pc if supported.
