Default HELP!!! New TV only showing 480p!

Hello everyone,

I just bought a Sharp LC-32D43U the other day and for some reason it doesn't show anything but 480p. For instance, I have my Xbox 360 hooked up with component cables and have the switch on the cables set to HDTV, yet for some reason the input only displays it as 480p. When i select input 3 (the one w/ xbox) it says this:

Input 3
Component
Video: 480p

I was just wondering why it was not showing as 720p or 1080i. I've looked through all the menu options and the manual and couldn't find anything. I was just wondering if there is a way to fix this or if I am just making a stupid mistake due to my lack of HDTV knowledge.

Thanks, and if you need any more info to help me feel free to ask.

Did you set your Xbox to 720 or 1080 in the display settings menu?

It is under system blade -> console settings -> display
