Of course you need component cable to enjoy best out of it, however if you got your box modded, why not enjoy even better resolution by change its video signal from PAL to NTSC, PAL xbox only deliver 576i, NTSC xbox can stretch up to 1080i

I'm not sure whether LA26R51B has HDTV resolution and capable of allow NTSC signal, but it would worth try.

However some early HDTV got separate component input for 480i and 480p~1080i, in that case you need to connect it to 480i first to change video signal and basic setting stuff from original xbox setup screen(green background), then you need to switch it over to other component input to enjoy higher resolution.

for DVD enjoying, XBMC quite handle DVD very well, even if you're using very high resolution like 1080i

I got 3 modded xbox to setup multimedia centre on each living room with wireless repeater, and it works very well.
