Problems with HD connection

So I've just got a new HDTV for my Birthday. I couldn't wait to finally play games in HD. An HDMI cable came with it, so I hastily plugged it into the back of the TV then went to look for a connection with my Xbox.( It's the Matte White Pro 20GB version from like 2006). I soon realised it didn't have one. Is there any way I can hook up my Xbox?

The connections on the back of the TV are: 2 x HDMI inputs, one Scart (RGB).

I still have the cable Xbox issued with the console (The dual RGB or RCA leads and the HD/TV switch by the Xbox input.) but there are no female individual RGB inputs on the TV. Link might help show you what cable I'm on about- see"Component HD AV Cable"

Can someone shed some light on any products that are out there for this type of problem?

Thanks in advance.

So far I see no evidence that the Advanced SCART cable will provide HD resolutions beyond 480p.[quote]I still have the cable Xbox issued with the console (The dual RGB or RCA leads and the HD/TV switch by the Xbox input.) but there are no female individual RGB inputs on the TV.[/quote]XBOXes sold in regions wtih SCART support came with a Composite to SCART converter block. It won't help as it's still feeding Composite video into the SCART port.[quote]Can someone shed some light on any products that are out there for this type of problem?[/quote]A new 360. It will cost you around $100 USD to buy a Component video cable and a Component to HDMI adapter. That's money better put towards buying a 360 that has native HDMI support, not to mention a 2006-era 360 is living on borrowed time.
