    I have a 27" sony wega, the one with the speakers on the sides and the better comb filter. Can't remember exact model # off hand.

    ANYWAY, i have a kenwood vr-509 receiver. Right now I bought the high definition av pack and am using component cables.

    In the video section of the xbox, should I use the widescreen, letterbox or normal setting?? And what about all the DPI?

    4:3 (normal setting) for aspect ratio and 480i. If your set supports 480p you should select that.

    todd, yours probably doesn't, unless it's an XBR with progressive scan. (that's what the p in 480p stands for)

    The letterbox/normal setting is for DVD movies. Choose letterbox to view DVDs in their original aspect ratio on your TV set.

    What's the DPI you're talking about?

    I think he was using the DPI term in refrence to the resolution options.

    Todd, the reason he was confused is because "DPI" is not the correct term (unless we were talking about a printers resolution).
