ANSWER: The VGA should brodcast in HD but you may need to play with some settings on your xbox.  You're able to pick resolutions and such under the xbox settings menu.  Try changing the settings and see if that helps.

QUESTION: hi yes i did do that but it says i can only get hd with a componet cable.

Answer

Then you need to check the resolution with your monitor.  It may have a refresh rate or a resolution that's not compatible with the 360.  Overall, the picture will be better than standard definition on a flatscreen monitor, but not all of them have resolutions in the "HD" category, and some have some odd resolutions that might not work.
