Default 1080p hddvd at 1080i?

I have a 65-inch Mitsubishi Diamond Series about 3 years old. So I just got the xbox360 HD-DVD player. I was wondering
though since my tv only goes up to 1080i, does the hddvd player send
out a hd pictures still? Does it just down convert to 720p and the tv
up-convert to 1080i? How do hddvd work with 1080i tvs. Sorry if you
have gone over this before new here. Thanks

-Sam

Sounds like we might have a similar television and setup. I'm not sure if this is what you're asking, but if the TV displays at 1080i, then that's what you should have your 360 set to output in the Video Settings. And you won't get 1080p out of the 360 unless you're connected with HDMI, and unless you have an Xbox 360 Elite (with HDMI out), you're not gonna be able to use HDMI.

The hd-dvd add on for the 360 can only go 1080p if you have an elite.. since the premium can only go 1080i @[email protected]

I have an elite hooked up thru hdmi to my 57inch DLP Samsung 1080p tv, and it displays 1080p (obviously)

Looks great too <3 hd dvd

Not quite true, you can use the VGA connector on the premium system and achieve 1080p. That is if the TV accepts it.

You do realize that 720P, 1080i and 1080P are ALL HD resolutions.

They are indeed. But I think the question just asked refers to the process of converting the 1080p signal to 1080i. My tv has 768 lines. So how does the 1080p signal get changed to 720p/1080i?

Yes you got what I was asking. I am not asking what the xbox puts out but how it converts to 1080i. Thank you I did not think anyone would get what I was asking.
