Projector setup & Xbox

What settings/setup do you use with your projector when using Xbox?

I have an AE200 connected to a modified Xbox via component for progressive scan and I also use a Hoya filter.

I find 'dynamic' with a bit of contrast added to be best because the Xbox picture is known to be quite dull and murky.

I am still not totally happy with the picture as jaggies are still visible and the picture is not has sharp as I would like. I presume this is due to Xbox's limitations and that a higher resolution projector would not help much, but probably make it worse...

Any thoughts?

Hi Seb,

I'm always blown away by the image quality of my Xbox on what is now quite an old NEC projector. I have a US box, connected via the official Microsoft High Definition lead.

Certainly wouldn't say I saw a lot of jaggies - and the image is pin-sharp. It almost sounds like you are still running in interlaced mode?

Have you got a US or PAL box - and are you using the video mode selector disk if it's PAL?

I am definitely getting a progressive image because the projector is detecting a 525P signal. The game I am playing is Rallisport Challenge (PAL). The jaggies are not bad, but there are a few...

My Xbox was bought from Premodded.co.uk so I presume its a modified PAL Xbox.

What if I try a US game? Do PAL games in NTSC mode not look as good as a US game would?
