    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?
