Default VGA Dilemma

I have been using my xbox hd-dvd drive since Xmas day. I switched from components to vga so I could upscale my SD-DVDs. However I think I am losing something. MY plasmas maximum VGA resolution is 1280x1024, which from what I have read seems to be a enhanced 720p (if there is such a thing). Is 1280x1024 a viable HD format? Should I switch back to the components and enjoy normal 1080i? Any advice would be much appreciated.

My Plasma is a Hitachi 42PD5200

You should have your VGA set to whatever the native resolution of your display is. I tried looking up your set, but I can't seem to find specs on it. If your set just scales whatever resolution you input through the component to 720p there's really no point in setting it to 1080i. Just leave it at 720p which is actually what is native for the 360.

1280x1024 is not a HD resolution. 1280x720 is 720p but many TVs have native resolutions of 1366x768 which is enhanced 720p.

yeah, my HDTV LCD can accept standard VGA resolutions (1280x1024, etc), but it automatically sets it to 1366x768.

Just set your deshboard resolution to 1360x768 and it will be fine.
