I recently bought an Asus VH236 23" LCD monitor for my Xbox 360. According to the MLG website, they use 1920x1080 resolution. The problem is, that resolution isn't an option for me under Console Settings. The highest I could get was like 16-something by 10-something. I am currently using an HDMI cable to connect my 360 to the monitor. Could the problem be that I am using the HDMI cable rather than the Xbox 360 VGA cable? I noticed that on the MLG website, they also said that they used VGA to connect the monitor. Still, I didn't think the HDMI cable would render the Xbox incapable of producing the full resolution.
I guess what I'm looking for is confirmation that the problem does in fact lie with the utilization of an HDMI cable rather than a VGA cable. I don't want to go shell out $40 for a cable I don't really need. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
