    I have a chipped xbox, it was chipped so I could play imported games and has a switch on the front with a light so I can turn the chip off if I want to go on line.

    My question do I need to soft mod in order play in hi-def mode using component, I have a panny 42pe50 arriving on Thursday (I know its not true HD but it will scale down) or can I just get some good cables and it will work fine.

    Cheers

    no you dont need the softmod the chip is fine. what you need to load is the enigma video switcher and turn your xbox from PAL to NTSC. then in the dashboard video options 720p and 1080i becomes selectable

    you can still use it on live if you have your chip turned off. Hard drive size doesn't make any difference. I actually wish I'd gone for a bigger one than the 40GB I have in there!

    Cheers Kopite, its been a while since I have been in EVOX and just can't remember how I do it, I will have a go when I get home, maybe it will all come flooding back when I do.

    By the way, what is happening with our boys, are we jinxed in front of goal or what?
