I got the Elite and it comes with an XBOX to HDMI cable, an XBOX to composite cables, as well as an XBOX to RCA's. Throw in S-Video and your looking at many ways to hook that XBOX up to the TV. What XBOX 360 do you have and what type of TV is it? I have my 360 hooked up via HDMI to a 1080p 52" LCD HDTV and it is friggin awesome, it is the best connection method for the XBOX 360 and the best type of connection going these days.

You can use the composite cable (Red Blue Green).

The Xbox 360 premium does not have a HDMI port, the only way to achieve HDMI on a premium is to get the HD DVD Player.
The older Xbox 360 Premiums.
Look at this:

I thought he had the new ones....seeing how he just got it. So your saying my Elite has a HD-DVD drive?

No the elite does not have a HD-DVD player drive, just the added HDMI port and a 160GB HD.

Just some info SaneSam and General Lee:
Yes it always has been since i think this year or last year when they can out with it. The PS3 can play Blue-Ray discs internally, but not HD-DVD movies where as the Xbox 360 can't play any of those internally and can only play HD-DVD movies externally with the HD-DVD player which cost around $200.00 the last time i checked, but do remember the Xbox 360 20GB is about $200.00 less in price then a PS3 80GB unit, well that is if you don't get a PS3 on sale or and Xbox 360.
I just looked at Futureshop and you can get a PS3 with 40GB drive, not the 60GB for $399.99. That is a decent price and is the smae price as what a Xbox 360 20GB unit costs. The PS3 80GB unit cost $499.99 which the price of an Xbox 360 Elite 160GB unit.
Basically it boils down to what you want to play in content and having HD space.
Also you can hook HD with componet HD cable that comes with it from the Xbox 360 to a HD TV or Monitor that has Componet plug in, but the best connection is HDMI for clarity and for higher resolution 1080i or 1080p and 1080p is higher resolution then 1080i and gives the better resolution out if the two of them.
So a good choice for a cheaper Blue-Ray player is the 40GB PS3 unit, but were not sure what the movie industry is doing towards picking whihc content they wish to fully support being it Blue-Ray or HD-DVD. So having a console along with it is a bonus for those who wish to play games as well.
Keep in mind you will need a HD TV or Monitor to play either or content properly.

This is good:
This would be a nice addition to the Blue-Ray needs for your backups.

HD-DVD is more popular by a 2-1 margin in todays market...so far.

Plus having Vista media center PC, a high end gaming PC, a Wii, an HDMI Home Theatre and a XBOX 360...I don't need or have the space for a PS3...lol.
