    I'm not familiar with your particular TV, but a good TV can basically make a 1080i look like 1080p, at least from a video source like HD-DVD. So you're good there. You'll want to use HDMI to make sure you get any upscaling benefits for regular DVDs (although not sure if the xbox upscales or not).

    For audio, you'll probably want a good receiver for "HD" audio with 5.1 (or 7.1) set-up. Run an HDMI cable from the player to the receiver, and another cable to get video from the receiver to the TV.

    well you can replace the tv with a 1080p change out the 360 for a PS3 so you can have a blueray DVD player and use nothing but HDMI 1.3 for HD surround as well then you would need a THX certified surround sound system and your set

    How bout sound? How you gettin your sound to your home theater? Are you gettin 5.1 or dts. Depending on your home theater reciever you might need more then that hdmi cable. You might need to go with digital coax or optical to get the dolby to the home theater.

    HDMI is glitch-ridden, so maybe you should consider another interface type, such as component. Other than that, you should be ok
