My 360 goes from component to my AV receiver to the teevee via HDMI.

Ok the reson your 360 looks bad running it through your tv tuner card is the tv tuner card cannot keep up with the frame rate of the 360....

and your 360 looks like garbage..

Yes We Can.
( if you havent solved your problem yet )
As long as you have the right cables it is possible. Ive had my 360 hooked to my Gateway HD2200 through VGA , component and HDMI. I chose to stay with the HDMI because I just didnt like the VGA or component look compared to the hdmi. So just try to find a 360 vga cable and your in business, MS one is $40 im pretty sure
