graphics on the new slim xbox

i had an elite for many years but recently got the kinect ready slim xbox.
i notice the graphic on the elite is alot better than the new slim. i tried adjusting to both 720p & 1080p but looks the same..also try using different hdmi cables....what am I doing wrong? does the elite have a better graphic card?

if you wonder how i know theres a difference on graphics...for example on black ops, you're in lobby waiting and the small window that shows the next map or selected map...that small window is crisp clear on the elite, while the new slim its very blurry

it's most likely your tv, if anything return or exchange it for a different one.

what would be sweet is formatting an SSD to work with the xbox and installing games to it...no more load times
