does anyone know if you can buy a componant video cable for the xbox? I suspect that there isn't but i thought i'd ask
I brought this cable and connected it to a Panasonic LC75e projector via a VGA to BNC breakout cable as the component inputs are part of the HD15 socket. However I find that I get faint green vertical bands on the picture with DVDs although it does not affect games. I also have Microsoft's own component cable, brought from Canada but find that the green bands are even worse on this. Has anyone any idea what causes this?Originally posted by rogeralpine
There is - I got mine from Game (£24.99 by Gamester) Connected it to my AE100 and it confirms that it receives an interlaced piccy!!
Only thing is is that you only get DD Opt out when using component - the phono left/right isn't enabled (it is when using sVid though)
Just read another post in the LCD projector section that answers my own question. The UK Xbox needs to be chipped and then set to NTSC using a Video Select CD to allow the progressive options to be activated in the video menu. Seems the UK was never intended to get 'Hi-Def' out of the standard Xbox.Originally posted by DVDcake
I thought the UK X-box was supposed to be able to do a progressive picture at least with the games.
