    Hi

    I bought a scart cable from Maplin which allows me to connect my PS2 and Xbox to my TV using a single lead. The lead has two settings AV and RGB, but when I set it to RGB for my Xbox it's just the same as AV, it gives a composite quality picture. When I try this for my PS2 though I do get an RGB quality picture. On PS2 you can select RGB in the setup but on Xbox I can't find away of doing this. Surely if you was going to use your Xbox for dvd playback you would get that option.

    Any help would be grateful.

    The xbox is set to an rgb picture as standard mate you cannot change any settings as long as you have the right leads there should be no problem!

    The official cable isn't very good either (I have one)

    This is basically because the Xbox has crap RGB output. When I bought my RGB cable I did a few comparisons between RGB and composite and there was hardly any difference in quality. RGB looked better (it should do though!) but the difference was much smaller than it is with other systems.

    So there isn't anything wrong with your TV, Xbox or cables...it's "supposed" to look washed out :rolleyes:
