    Can I get xbox component lead with optical out?

    If yes, where?

    Cant find one anywhere, although I have found one with just L/R audio it seems a bit silly not to be able to find one with optical out on.........!

    Please help me if you can!

    thanks,

    Cap:)

    You need a High Definition AV Pack from dvdboxoffice.

    It will work on an XBox but only at 480i. The only to output anything higher is to either buy a NTSC machine or have it chipped and use a PAL>NTSC video selector disk.

    Captain, it is worth it even if you can "only" output 480i as i currently use a high def pack and the picture quality over the normal lead is night and day, it is far sharper even just using the 480p in my case. My xbox is chipped so will output 720 once i get my pj, o yeah and obviously the sound will be far better. I would definitely recommend the ms high def pack from dvdboxoffice.

    You will still need to buy an optical lead though, although the high def pack has the optical out it does not come with an optical lead, it includes cheap component leads but not an optical lead.

    I got mine today and the picture is far superior to the RGB scart, even in 480. I got mine from www.mx2.co.uk but it took nearly 2 weeks to get here! The price was £29.99 and its defo worth the price. I have my Xbox modded but where can I get the selecter disk so I can utilise 760?
