We have PS1 and 2 ... My husband and son were GranTurismo freaks! Both have steering wheels. Forum Competition was very big at one time.

Its a bummer for you...even using component (RGBRWY) would make a huge difference
Component, the Green Blue and Red ones? My TV has those and my 360 has those, but when I try to use it its like all trippy colors on my TV. :S
Really? Do you have a video cable for the XBOX that uses those AND is the TV on the input channel for Component?
Be gentle my brain hurts today thanks to GRiM.

Okay, my TV has a Green, Blue and Red set of ports on the back. Those are listed as component.

My Xbox 360 Cable has those on it as well, I have set the switch thingy to component and my TV is set for component but I get nothing but trippy colors.

The difference is actually quite astounding on my Sony Bravia 40" LCD with Sky+HD, even though the maximum output from Sky is 1080i.
The reason the difference is astonishing is because your source (Sky+HD) is pushing out a 1080i signal...again it's the source that really matters.

If you were to push that exact same signal out to 2 properly calibrated displays, with 1 at 720p and 1 at 1080p...from a viewing distance of over 3ft....the human eye wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

People are very confused by this. You often see people who compare the picture quality of their old TV to their new TV and talk about how much better it is. Well, that is often due to better optical components and not the resolution. Of, they also get a BluRay player with their new 1080p and are blown away by how great it looks. Again, it's the source that matters and not the resolution outputted.

So, for example, if you had the same blu-ray playing connected via the same HDMI cable, 1 on a Panasonic 42" 720p plasma properly calibrated and 1 on a Panasonic 42" 1080p plasma display properly calibrated, at 6ft back you would be hard pressed to find anybody who could identify with any accuracy which set is which.

Again, at the end of the day, it's the SOURCE which really matters. A high quality 1080p source has all the bits and bytes and data to present a truly outstanding image. When that image goes to a 720p display, the tv simply downgrades the impeccable signal from 1080 lines to 720 lines and displays it. Well, since it was nearly a perfect image, nothing bad happens during the down conversion and with human vision, it's still absolutely remarkable.

Its the XBOX then...

If your bold memorize the button presses from power on to the Display Settings menu on the XBOX. Before you hook up the component, switch the XBOX to component as source. Now the screen wont be readable so turn off the XBOX. Hook up the component and make sure the TV is on component. Fire up the XBOX and you should now have an image

I have callibrated my set with Joe Kane's DVE HD Basics, well worth a look.

I reckon I could tell the difference.

But yes, you're correct, the source material is always the most important factor.

If you are a gran turismo fan...you should be playing Forza 2 or waiting for Forza 3. They are far more similar in nature to Gran Turismo than Grid. Not that Grid isn't a fun game, but it's an arcade racer versus more of a simulator racer.
