been trying to buy an HDTV to primarily use for XBox 360 / XNA dev (next week!) and Media Center development. found the TV i want, and surprisingly ... its a Sony. i've got zero brand loyalty to them ... but my eyes chose their TV. and i've already chosen the 360 because of its media center extender capabilities, its own media capabilities, quick arcade games, and soon for custom development. so i thought i was done ... but it's not that simple. 1) Sony fucked up because their 1080p TV only accepts 1080p through HDMI inputs. not over component or VGA. you've got to be kidding me. 2) Microsoft is fucking up because they don't offer an HDMI cable.
so now i'm back to a holding pattern. either i find a different TV that catches my eye (not promising), or MS announces an HDMI cable ... i really can't comprehend why MS is not pushing out an HDMI cable? there is definitely a demand. especially in light of the recent 1080p fix problems. if they don't want to do it, why not let a 3rd party? i've seen posts that have said the hardware can handle it ... but i'm becoming skeptical.
