I recently bought a 1080p hd tv to game on because I though the higher the resolution the better, but now i find all my console games are 720p and look awefull scaled up to 1080p because there are ofter lots of "jaggies". Is there any way to make 720p games look good on 1080p screens,

On the same sized screen it would look just as jaggie - regardless of the upscaling. Can your TV be manually overridden to go into 720p mode?

Thats no different than watching HD Broadcast which are all done in 720p. Try watching a HD Broadcast and compare it with a game. if it looks better than there might be some wrong settings in your console.

How was your friends TV connected?

in exactly the same way he used an hdmi cable and connected from the hdmi 3 port to his xbox's hdmi port, exactly the same as i do, i do however have a much more expensive cable (although i've heard it doesn't matter how good the cable is if its under like 3 Metres)

So, did you check your TV settings for upscaling and what not?

What are the chances that his TV is doing some nature of filtering and your is not? PC games and screen fonts and graphics suffer from this problem becasue PC monitors show every detail, so PC games use Anti-aliasing to reduce this effect.

well the only options i know of that come close to that are DNR and Edge Enhance, both i've tried enabling and disabling but they don't seem to do much, my friend definately wouldn't have changed the settings on his tv
i should point out that my pc games look fine at 720p (1280x720) with no AA and they all have almost no jaggies
