    Hi there. So i have Samsung Syncmaster SA350H connected to my xbox360 via VGA cable. It should be official microsoft cable, cause it has hologram on the AV. But when i go to my dashboard xbox display settings i see: resolution 1920x1080, widescreen and below that it says "connect HD AV cable adjust HD options" or something like that. So is my cable fake or what ? I don't have options to set 480p, 720p or 1080p, i have only option to change resolution. I am asking cause i am playing Skyrim now, and i think the picture should be better. (not installed on hdd) Thanx.

    VGA cable is analogue, not digital, therefore the picture is always not as good as HDMI. Also 1920x1080 already is fullHD, so it is about the highest resolution the Xbox 360 can produce. And Skyrim only supports 720p, which is 1280x720.

    The second number is what to pay attention to:
    1920x1080 ------> 1080p
    1280x720 -------> 720p
    640x480 --------> 480p
