Well I broke down and got an import Xbox yesterday along with two controllers, Dead or Alive3 and Halo. I'm picking up the hi-def av pack today so I had to play with only a stereo and composite video feed last night. First off the perils of 240volts.... As this is a US device it expects 110v-120v. My supplier gave me a stepdown autotransformer rated at 100watts. Got the Box back to the shop, unpacked it all. Plugged the autotransformer in to the wall and the lead in to back of XBOX. Xbox not switched on though... Quiet buzz from transformer for about 2 minutes while I finish unpacking instructions (who needs them) and controllers. Tried to switch on Xbox and no power.....opened up transformers fuse and it's BLACK..replaced it with correct fuse. Now I'm paranoid so I thought I'd just check the voltage coming out of the thing before plugging it in to m y new wee green toy... 227volts....oops! It had failed. If I'd plugged it in to the XBOX it'd have been toast! Quick nip down to see XBOX man with my voltmeter. Confirmed new one outputting at 116v. Back to shop, plugged in to XBOX and BINGO....up and running. Plugged it in stereo in to a TAG AV32r and composite feed direct to a Panasonic D4 plasma. Now you must remember that I am not a games nutter. I owned a Playstation 1 which was bought just before the 2 came out. Only evere played GT, MGsolid and Syphon filter along with my Baseball game. Didn't even play them that much. Before that I had a Sega Game Gear. So my expectations of gaming quality are probably lower than most of the frequent readers and posters on this forum. Anyway, put on DOA3. Set it up for 16:9 screen chose a character and started to play....Well lets just say that between 4.00pm and 6.30 last night not much work got done at StereoStereo. We beat the crap out of each other trying every character we could, then we had some TAG team games...what a laugh. One of the guys who works with me is a BIG gaming fan. He was thinking of getting a PS2. He couldn't believe how good this was...I suspect he's saving for a UK BOX now. Anyway,, hopeing for not many customers at 4.00pm so we can play bit more in DD with the hi-def output.... More to follow once I get this thing home and on to my projector...hahaha.... Gordon Put on Halo very briefly. Looks interesting.
