No...

max displayable resolution is 1080i, you need to set you xbox to NTSC if it is a PAL device & 1080i becomes an option.

also due to the processor & GPU speeds you may be able to play 1080i content in divx or xvid format but the xbox is unable to handle .x264 with any decent resolution - its just too CPU intensive...

There is a new website for the xbox & xbmc BTW... www.xbmc4xbox.org

My xbox I have set up for 720p & I usually have to re-encode any x264 content so that it will play. Just yesterday I found two blogs explaining how to set up a computer to reencode video too complex for the xbox & stream it to the xbox so that you can still watch it....

I tried the first one using VLC last night & it worked like a charm!

Cheers

If you have an iPhone or an iTouch, you can run a free AirVideo Server on the PC from which you share to your XBOX classic.

Then you can use your iPhone to tell your PC to convert the .x264 (.mkv, .mp4), 1080p files to an .m4v (640x272) file in-place, which an old XBOX will play just fine. Takes about 6 minutes to convert a 1:45 movie on my PC. (6 Core AMD 3.2GHz)
