I'm trying to set up a basic home theater in my basement, and I am using a Mitsubishi XC3710U Monitor for my display needs. I aquired this monitor through a government auction, and up until recently have just used it for composite display. Well last night I discovered that it has green sync RGB inputs. This caused me to do some investigating, and I have found out that the monitor will do either a max resolution of 800x600 or 1280x1024 (two different site's opinions). My basic question is if this monitor will support an HDTV signal? And if so how can I connect the component outputs of the Xbox HD pack to the green sync inputs of the monitor?

I tried to Google your monitor specs, but didn't find anything. Either way, HD resolutions are 1280x720 (720p) and 1920x1080 (1080i) so your Mitsubishi will not be able to display HD content.

What about 480p? Even that would be great. I called Mitsubishi, and they said that the monitor supports 800x600 with a scan rate of 15-37khz. Also I can get my hands on a PVM-3230 that has 650TV lines of resolution. Would this be a better choice?
