    did you set your xbox to output in progressive? the vga port on the x1 only accepts progressive signals...btw, i don't have an x1, but i think this might be the solution from what i have read.

    Mike is correct. Be sure the XBox is set to progressive. There's a bit of a trick to doing this because the dashboard is not progressive and won't show up on the projector.

    The easiest way to do this is to hook up the XBox's high def pack and plug the green RCA plug into the RCA video port of the projector. Go to the dashboard and set the XBox's progressive options. When this is done, plug the component cables into the component - VGA converter and back into the X1.

    It should be all set. Remember though that the dashboard is not progressive and will never show up. The image will appear when the actual game in the 'box loads up.

    Hope this helps.

    Off topic but I finally got my HD box from Time Warner and it looks awesome. If it looks this good on the X1, I can't imagin how good it must look on the higher end setups.

    Does anyone know if there are plans for an option to have the dashboard in 480p in any future updates? Is there any particular reason that it isn't, or was it just an oversight?

    Not a huge deal, but kind of annoying..

    It is an annoyance, particularly because, as they keep adding more and more features to the dashboard (such as voice-chat, friends online, etc.), it will become a more and more glaring omission. Hopefully they'll figure it out sooner rather than later and make some sort of update.
