    I own an Xbox (also an Xbox Live beta tester [​IMG] ) and wondering if/what issues there may be between the TVs input/output with the Xbox and Xbox games.
    Thanks for any information.

    Hi Randy and welcome to the HTF [​IMG]. I've got the 55" model and have been extremely happy with it. The biggest plus with these Sharp RPTV's is that they will except a native 720p signal [​IMG]. So, I say go for it and make sure you pick up or rent a copy of NBA 2K3 for some 720p goodness. One known problem with the sets is a horizontal white line of the left side of the screen, but to tell you the truth you'll hardly notice it. Plus you can have Sharp replace the main board, of course you'll want to wait until the end of the warranty period [​IMG].
    Since you're on the XBL beta make sure you post your gamer tag here. Hope to see you online.

    Thanks for the post and opinion of the set.

    So you have no issues with this set and the Xbox dashboard or any of the games. That is GREAT news.
