XBOX 360 AWFUL IMAGE QUALITY on my new VIZIO 1080p HDTC LCD!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok so i just got a Vizio V0370M 2 months ago. I have xbox 360 elite with both HD component cables by rocketfish and HDMI cables by same maker. My LCD looks great with comcast digital cable tv and absolutely beast w/ Blurays but it is TERRIBLE w/ xbox 360 games!!


The graphics on games like COD4, Halo3, COD modern warfare 2, gears2, borderlands, etc---all look awful. They are poorly rendered, jagged lines, blocky, and TERRIBLE textures! It really looks like 1st gen xbox graphics. I will get some screenies for u all later.

I have my console/display settings set to 1080p. I tried 720p, 1080i and no improvement in quality. I tried using my HDMI and HD component--they look the same. Is there a way to manually set the vizio's resolution to match the xbox's? is it a refresh rate issue? Will adjusting the TV's settings like WS/fullscreen/full affect the quality?

I hooked up my xbox to my old sony 36 in XBR CRT HDTV and it looks way better. I understand the xbox upscales the images but this bad?? really??

ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
THANKS

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
