so the wait finally came to an end as I finally picked up my xbox from Game in Cambridge (12:02am to be exact. ) I didnt buy any of the AV packs with it as I wanted to read some reviews and get some advice , so just plugged the xbox straight into the TV. Got Halo and RallySport (which didnt get played at all last nite) Halo - wow, thats all I can say - I seen many reviews and even had a tinker in some shops which had a demo system going - its blowen me away, all of a sudden it was 6:45am this morning and I had to get ready for work, Ive now spent all of today reading more and more reviews of games .. think Im going to have to get wreckless and possibly amped. Ive got tomorrow and Monday off, nice So onto my questions - the best way to connect this to my system for best picture and audio. I am a Tosh 40" rear projection TV which by the way has onboard component. I have the Yamaha DSP 620 amp. Im hoping to pick up what I need tomorrow. ta, Nige PS: I was so wacked this morning I have just realised that at the end of my voice mail greeteing on my work phone, instead of saying thanks I said xbox .... oh dear !!
