This set is about 2 years old and it is a HD "ready" TV meaning it does not have a built in receiver. But on my component cable connections on the back of the unit it says 480i/480p/1080i and i want to hook up an XBOX 360 through these component cables.

My question is even though i dont have a HD receiver will my the XBOX 360 output into my TV at 1080i and will my TV accept and run the 1080i signal from the XBOX 360? Or do i need a receiver to run anything at 1080i?

I thought the HD receiver was only for a TV/Cable/Satellite signal?

If you have access to the back of your TV, it takes 30 seconds to try it out. But yes, your TV will support 1080i via the component cables. I have a WS-55411 (2 years older) that supports 1080i via component cables.

Thank you. I actually dont have the XBOX 360 yet i am buying it for a Christmas present for myself and wanted to verify this before purchasing the XBOX 360.

That is such great news that i can do this. I am really excited to hook it up and start playing in 1080i.

So your WS-55411 does not have a built in HD receiver either?

No. I use a DirecTV HR10-250 (aka HD DirecTivo) connected via component cables to get a 1080i HD signal into the TV.

I only own a Nintendo that I bought in 1987 so I'm not up to speed on my gaming systems. But I did read that some XBOX games are coded to run at a 720p output when in HD mode. Your TV won't accept that. You will have to set the XBOX's output to 480p to get a signal. Again, this may be old information and not valid any more.

rom xbox.com:

To clear up some confusion, here are a few key points to bear in mind regarding high-definition support on Xbox 360.

* You do not need a TV that supports high definition to use the Xbox 360 system. Like all consoles before it, Xbox 360 works perfectly on standard-definition TVs (the resolution for standard def is 480 interlace).
* The high-definition support for Xbox 360 is dynamic, so even if a game is designed with 720p in mind, but your TV only supports 480p or 1080i, Xbox 360 runs the game in the best resolution your TV offers (up to 720p and 1080i).
* If you do plan on running games in high definition with your HDTV, you'll need the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable, which comes standard with the Xbox 360 system (not the Xbox 360 Core System) and is sold separately as well.

Xbox 360 offers unprecedented support for high-definition gaming, yet it remains flexible as well. Whether using a standard definition TV (480i), an HDTV with only one progressive scan option, or an HDTV with every available option (up to 720p and 1080i), the Xbox 360 employs the best resolution your TV can display.

Mike, Dave I want to point out that I know just enough to be extremely dangerous. I have a Mit WS-something that outputs at 1080i and I also have a XBOX 360. All games that play at 720P are up converted to 1080i via the 360 so this is not a problem. (Now someone that knows much more then me can come on here and explain it much better) None the less I have played several old Xbox games that only output at 720P and have not had any problems and have not changed anything in the 360 menu.

I have the 55413 and the Xbox 360 converts all 720p games to 1080i. There is no need to do anything. When you set up the Xbox 360 it will ask you what resolution and you would pick 1080i. Trust me when I say the 360 looks great on my 55 but I did have Greg L. calibrate it.
