2 Slims, 1 Vizio: one works for me, one NOT SUPPORT (+ more details) = STUMPED!

I bought a used chrome-trimmed shiny black 250gb 360S (without 4gb internal memory) to give as a gift to a bummed out friend, and I have spent the last two days troubleshooting what seems to be a compatibility issue with an HDMI cable connection to a 37" Vizio 1080p LED TV (M370NV). It simply states "NOT SUPPORT" with the older one and the newer one works. It DOES work with this specific HDTV if I use a Composite RGB/AV, just not with an HDMI cable. It also works perfectly with that same HDMI cable on a different Vizio HDTV. Also, my newer matte black XBOX 360S (with 4gb internal memory) works on both HDTVs with that same HDMI cable. So, clearly there's something fishy going on with the older 360S with HDMI cable to this specific Vizio. Troubleshooting: Y+RT doesn't do anything Going into Display Settings blind (up, right 6, down, AAAA, etc...) didn't work Switching HDMI cord ends didn't work Using a different HDMI cable didn't work Factory resetting the TV didn't work Why would my newer matte black XBOX 360S work fine with an HDMI cable to this Vizio HDTV, but not the chrome-trimmed shiny black 360S?
