Default 360 HD DVD Question

I have a 1080p Samsung 61", I am tempted to buy the HD-DVD drive for my tv, but having a hard time understanding if I can actually get 1080p via VGA jack on back. I called samsung and just spun my wheels with them cause they are trying to tell me its an analog signal and u can't get 1080p via analog. Does anyone know if my TV will allow 1080p via VGA. Please help!!

Thanks,

Absolutely.

You WILL be able to get 1080p via VGA from your 360. I wasn't exactly thrilled with the PQ on my TV (with this connection). So, I opted for just regular component video and 1080i. It still looks fantastic!

BTW, component video does have the capability of passing 1080p. It just has to have 200 mHz bandwidth and above (the components not the cables). Most consumer electronics stop at 100 mHz.

I've heard some TV manufacturers out there have the bandwidth via component video. Maybe your TV does? Try that 1st.

Hope this helps.
