Question from GT5_Lover_JC

High Definition T.V. for split screen playing:i have it,but...?

It's not letting me play with my bro,since i can't find any options to do so. Do i need to have two Xboxlive accounts? i'd love a confirmed answer.

Thanks guys!! The Turismo Kitty

GT5_Lover_JC provided additional details:

Pressing start on the second controller during gameplay does nothing,my T.V. is HDMI,and yet there is no option to put it HDTV anywhere in the menu of my XBOX360. i'm not trolling,i'm missing pieces of information.

GT5_Lover_JC provided additional details:

None of these options work. i did what you both told me--maybe i'm missing important bits of info. i need a confirmed answer. not just bits and pieces.

I believe that if you go to settings in the game, there will be a split screen option under one of the buttons

As long as you're not online he should be able to use a non-live account. If online then you'll have to have him sign on as a guest or something to enable it. As for having him actually in the game there's no real option for it however during the game press start on the second controller.

You have to go to your Xbox's settings and put it in HDTV Mode.

Make sure you have the duel av/hd wire connect or an hdmi. I know, stupid suggestions, but I had the new console I got come with just a standard av cord. Otherwise, when you start a game, make sure you're signed in and the second controller is on. When you go to start the game, it should have you sign in.

You need to push both left and right sticks on the unplaying controller to have a splitscreen game.

Go to the system settings and display settings and put the xbox in HD. Then go in game and press start with another controller signed in to a profile.

To play split screen with Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition on your HDTV, follow these steps.
Sign in on your profile and start up Minecraft.
Have your brother sign in on his account. He does not require an Xbox Live Gold account, so long as you make sure you do not have the "Online Game" box checked
Either create a new world or load up one of your old saves. If your brother is not an Xbox Live Gold member, then the "Online Game" option should be unchecked by default and greyed out. From there start the game as normal.

If you are still unable to play splitscreen, then make sure you have the proper HD cables going from your Xbox 360 to your HDTV.

I had the same problem, I had an HDTV, and an hdmi cord but couldn't seem to find anything online to help me but I read this and jasdeep99 is right. I went to the Xbox system settings, found display, then changed the resolution option to optimal resolution and it worked when I tried to play again.
