Yay, My Xbox 360 Now Does 1080p! Except…

With the latest Xbox 360 update that I just grabbed off Xbox Live, my console gains the ability to output 1080p video over component cables. Great! Microsoft finally delivered on their promise… and yes, they got there before the PS3 finally arrives too. So all is good yeah?

Well, no. My Dell 2405FPW LCD doesn’t like it at all. It complains:

Can not display this mode

Yep, that’s right. My LCD won’t display 1080p over component. And you know what? At least nine out of ten LCD owners out there aren’t going to have screens that can display that either. (Nor is their magic in HDMI-land.)

Sure… there’s been an incredible amount of hype about 1080p today. (Sony can yell “only 1080p is the real HD” all they want.) But that’s reality — there’s only four whole people in the whole world who will benefit right now. :roll:
