Researcher: 'Second wave' HD adopters favour HD DVD

Stephen Parker

@highlander

Are you actually suggesting that if you use a component lead or a VGA lead with the 360 then your picture is downgraded to SD? If not (and it isn't - unless outputting over VGA at 1920×1080 somehow isn't HD in your book), then I don't see the issue. Also, the 360 VGA cable comes with audio breakouts built into the lead anyway (comes with dual phono leads, or alternatively you can attach an optical lead to it), so that's hardly an issue either.

1. HD-DVD and Blu Ray are pricier than their DVD counterparts, but are more round the £15-£17 mark than the £30 you suggest.

2. The 360 doesn't have an HD-DVD player built in, it's a separately purchased external drive.

3. All 360s can output "proper HD" over component or VGA, HDMI isn't a necessity for that.

Orange to turn pink at Xmas to favour young women

Poor phone anyway....

My other half has the LG shine and as a phone it's godawful, even she thinks so. It might be OK if the scroll wheel was actually any use, but it's just so unresponsive.
