Only HDMI?

    • Level   5

    I was wondering if anyone has heard what types of video outputs the X1 will deliver to... anybody know? I could only find information detailing the HDMI capabilities... I game primarily on a HD monitor (with a weird aspect ration of 16:10 and 1680 x 1050 res) and the 360 actually supports this unusual display very nicely (over VGA) and I was hoping the X1 would too... or, I'm off to plunk down some more cash on a new PC/game console monitor... (I got this current one, in time for the 360 launch back on 11/25/05). Thanks!

    These pretzels are making me thirsty!

    No specifics have been revealed, but one can assume that since they did state that the unit will have a Blu-Ray player that it would have HDMI.  Not sure what else it would have.

    Those who think they are smart are very annoying to those who actually are.

    Looks like HDMI only.

    Penny for your thoughts.

    yeah i thought this was rather stupid, alot of people still have older TVs with NON HDMI conections, my SAT box is SD definiton and has just a coax and composite outputs, i hope they atleast consider some adapters for people with older connections.

    Well, everyone has to move on at some point - it might as well be now. Besides, why call it a next-generation console if it'll support older technology? Not that I'm against it or anything - just trying to play devil's advocate here. That & I personally have nothing to worry about because I bought a TV nearly 5 YEARS AGO (that's 1/2 a decade!) that supports HDMI connections. If you don't have 1 by now, then you're truly behind the times...

    I'm honestly surprised peoples SD TVs still work. Mine all crapped out almost five years ago, ones internal components pretty much blew up during a storm, and the others just wouldn't turn on one day. But honesty, HDMI has been standard for a very long time(technology wise), if you aren't already using it you are way behind.

    I have had an HDTV for 11 years now...I cant believe there are people out there that have a SDTV...Blows my mind..

    Well, thanks for the replies... I am actually surprised by this though, as with the 360 slims they came standard with composite... that's the same connection I used to hook up my old NES out of the box back in '86 (27 years ago!) to my old C64 monitor... I mean they haven't even made component standard yet... oh well, I guess I will have to upgrade my PC Monitor to one with HDMI (as stated, I primarily game in my office, on a PC monitor... which has the usual VGA, DVI-D, Component - and even composite - connections... just not HDMI... I do, and have for a long time owned HD TVs...). I actually know a lot of people though who do game on SD TVs... with their 360s too! Surprised there isn't more people crying about this one!

    I'm sure they will make a HDMI adaptor to component/composite/scart available.

    Why would they have to supply a HDMI cable? No other manufacturer of HDMI-based components supplies one in the box.

    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well...maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.

    DirecTV does ...

    Monoprice for cables ,,no need to pay outrageous prices for cables

    I do think they should have at least kept component/VGA outputs

    Just pick one of these up and you will be good to go. When i first got my ps3 all i had was a 1920x1200 monitor with only dvi inputs on it. You just need to be sure your monitor is HDCP compliant, which it probably is.

    Darn dude, get a $10 surge protector. I do my gaming and movie watching on a 50" Vierra, but i still have my old 32" Vega downstairs in case of emergency. Surge protectors, they are worth the $10.
