    HDMI... even though my tv is 720p, i still get the option from my xbox to set it at 720p or 1080i... what is the difference between the two? thanks!

    In your setup, you won't notice much difference if any. I'd go with 720p. Also keep the HDMI, don't go Component.

    go wiht the 720p. Your TV is not designed to handle the 1080i. I have my 360 on componane set up for 720p. I have not bought a spare HDMI cable for it yet

    720P, 1080i is higher def but its hard to see it on a 32 in screen. plus, ur screen doesn't have enough pixels to handle 1080i/p.
