Problem getting my 1920x1200 WUXGA monitor to go 1080p on an Xbox 360
Posted on 2007-10-12
I just got a new Soyo 24" Widescreen WUXGA LCD monitor with a 1920x1200 native resolution. It works fine on my PC, however I want to use it on my Xbox 360 as well, mostly for my HD-DVD player (yea, I know there's ways to get the HD drive to work on my PC, but then I have to deal with all the copy protection that keeps me from playing my legal discs).
Obviously, I want these HD-DVD's to be able to play in 1080p. I have the 360 VGA cable, so I'm not using any converters or anything. However, when I set the 360 to 1920x1080, the horizontal resolution is correctly at 1080, but the vertical resolution is stretched out so far that a lot of it is off-screen and the image is stretched. And when I open up the monitor's options, it says that it is displaying the image at 1680x1080 resolution.
I was under the impression that WUXGA monitors with a 1920x1200 native resolution had no problem displaying a pixel-by-pixel representation of the 1080p (1920x1080) resolution. Does anyone know if there's any way to make this monitor work on my 360?
