Hey all.

I have a 32" lcd which an xbox 360 in HD. Why is it when I pop in a dvd to watch it converts to 480p SD? Does this mean I need the HD dvd player?

xbox cant upconvert dvds over component. most dvd players cant i think, it has something to do with dvds having copy protection that wont allow upconverting over component.

No, the HD DVD drive is for playing HD DVD media. To upconvert SD DVDs beyond 480p (720p and 1080i) you will have to use either the VGA output (if your HDTV has a VGA input) or HDMI if you have the XBox 360 Elite.
