Xbox 360 profile is producing 480p instead of 720p

I have had this problem with both the free (2.3.13?) and paid (2.4.2) x64 versions, and is one of the main reasons I bought into Early Access. I have set the max width slider to 1280, the quality slider to max, and the volume boost to an additional 17.5, using the FX HD comskip.ini, and using custom naming, otherwise my settings are stock and input is unprotected WMC recorded movies from Comcast via InfiniTV4 PCIE. Logs will follow shortly as I'm not at my conversion PC (Win7 Ultimate x64, A10-5700 APU) at the moment.

Also, does anyone know the code to insert a WMC recorded movie's release year into the custom name? Both (%premiereyear%) and (%airyear%) produce ().

If you read the description of the 360 profile it says:
--> Description=Playstation 3 and XBox 360 compatible (H.264 MP4 width 720 pixel video and AAC audio).
Hope that answers your question, if you want to increase the max resolution edit the profile and change:
scale=min(720\,iw):trunc(ow/dar/2)*2
to
scale=min(1920\,iw):trunc(ow/dar/2)*2
or whatever limit you want

As for naming, the metadata retrieved is
OriginalBroadcastDateTime: 2012-05-03T17:00:00
RecordedDateTime: 2015-05-31T19:48:09
SeriesPremiereDate: 1899-12-31T16:00:00
The premiere year will be blank however the airyear will return 2012, check if you made a mistake while typing it in.

Thanks!

For some reason I was thinking it read "H.264 MP4 with 720 pixel video". Aah well. I appreciate the support.
