Xbox 360 Elite HDMI details
Microsoft?s upcoming Xbox 360 Elite supports the HDMI 1.2 specification, unlike Sony?s PS3, which is HDMI 1.3 compliant. When connected to an HDTV set with HDMI input, the Xbox 360 will automatically select the appropriate video output resolution up to 1080p. Users cannot manually force resolutions as the Xbox 360 relies on HDMI handshaking to select a suitable resolution.
Users hoping to enjoy lossless HD DVD audio from their Xbox 360 may want to look elswhere as the console will currently only output 2-channel PCM through its HDMI port. But sources claim that a software update around Spring will be released enabling DTS audio output.
