Depends on what your TV supports.

Is it a 720p or 1080p screen?

1080p is the best.

I forgot what 1080i was, but I know it's not as good as 1080p.

720p = Good

1080i = Better

1080p = Best

 

In general, you want to play at the highest resolution available. Also, since you have an HDMI cable, you can play in 1080p and take advantage of improved video and audio quality. The component cables that come with your Xbox can only support up to 1080i.

 

The only reason why new HDTVs that can support HDMI and 1080p still support 720p and 1080i is because component cables (Some which only support 720p), are still common.

Set your TV to the highest setting (1080), but its not gonna matter really, because the Xbox console doesnt even render in 720.

Wait so 1080p is better than 1080i ? I've been playing in 1080i for the last couple months..... i notice that on loading screens whenever the screen is all fully black i notice little inverted lines coming down my screen but i never see them in gameplay.

I don't think they even make 1080i TVs anymore.

@Uneasyjmitchell I can tell you that I have 2 xboxes in the house, one is on a 1080i tv and one on an older one that only reaches 720. The difference is immense for spotting people hiding in bushes or shadows.

I do not know why my first post is blank??? but anyway this might help

1080p will display 1080 pixels at once time

720p will display 720 pixels at one time

1080i ONLY DISPLAYS 540 pixels at one time

1080p is Best, 720p SHOULD look better than 1080i and 1080i is worst

there is no debate for any of this, the numbers will always hold the answer.

i=individual

p=plural

No.

I=Interlaced

P=Progressive
