720p = 1280x720 = 0.92 megapixels
768p = 1366x768 = 1.05 megapixels
1080p = 1920x1080 = 2.07 megapixels
The only important number is the one at the end. As you can see, your resolution is much closer to 720p than 1080p.
You can use HDMI and optical on 360, but you need an audio breakout cable. You get one included in the Elite, but if you didn't buy an Elite you can probably find them on eBay. They look like this
and connect to the main video out and provide stereo RCA/optical connections that work alongside HDMI for video.
