Default Question About the 360 Add-on

I am looking to get the 360 hd dvd add on but wanted to know if i can run movies in 1080p via component. I just bought a new Samsung 40 inch LCD which can run 1080p via component but i've heard all this technical jargon that through the 360 movies don't run in 1080p but 1080i. If someone can clear this up for me i'd appreciate it. I do not have an elite so running HDMI is not an option. I have a ps3 and a small blu ray collection but might as well take advantage of the hd dvd drive as well.

No it cannot output HD DVDs in 1080p over component.

The 360 will output games, the dashboard, and downloaded video content in 1080p over component cables.

HD DVDs are limited to 1080i and SD DVDs are limited to 480p over component. You would need to use the VGA cable or get an Xbox 360 Elite and output over HDMI to get 1080p for everything.
