Default Possible to achieve 1080p through 360 HD DVD by other than VGA?

of course, i just went out a few weeks ago and bought the new 1080p sharp 46 inch. Of course as my luck will have it, I find out my Sharp doesn't have a VGA input. I'm so dissapointed, can anyone help me in achieving 1080p without VGA? i've seen some converters, do those work, or are there others, and if so is MS ever going to come out with a goddamn HDMI 360 cable?

my HD-DVD drive displays the image in 1080i and is limited to only 480p upconversion because of component cables.

thanks in advance.

You can use component cables. If you got the 62U, congrats, that is a fine television.

that's only for games, unfortunately thanks to goddamn hollywood, the picture for HD-DVD's is automatically scaled down to 1080i and upconversion for standard def dvd's is limited to 480p. even though it's capable of 1080p HD-DVD's and 1080p upconversion.
