Hi. I have a Toshiba 50h81 16:9 HDTV and I can't get the XBox to display in
16:9 no matter what I try. I've tried two sets of cables (Microsoft's and
Monsters). I have set the video to WideScreen in the Xbox Dashboard and selected
480p as well as 1080i (my tv supports both) as enabled but it still won't
switch to 16:9 in Madden, Halo, DOA3... none of 'em. Called Microsoft and
boy the tech I talked to was clueless. Any Ideas?

Dunno what to tell you. I have a 50HX81, and after setting 480=yes & 1080i=yes (and using the HD pack on the 2nd HD input on the TV), DOA3 and Madden both played in 16x9 automagically. There is an option in DOA3 for 16x9, but I think it's only for movies. Mines is flipped on, you might want to try it, but I don't think it is the key.
The Madden screens look squashed until the actual gameplay starts.
