    This may be better posted in the LCD screen section but why do some Xbox games look better on my lcd than my old crt and vice versa?

    Games better on LCD: Forza, Republic commando, Halo 1 and 2 (or as good)

    Games better on CRT: PGR 2, Midtown madness 3 (looks awful on Lcd)

    maybe due to the colouring, i find that games that look awful are being forced to widescreen when they arent if you get me.

    Get Hidef activated then theyll all be good :)

    no it's not that the image is being streched it's more like more pixelated and colours look 'flater'

    I had a similar problem, some games with heavy contrast (otogi 2) looked awful on my lcd and better on crt. But generally games with natural colors looked outstanding on lcd (i think lcds have a more dynamic/vibrant colour range).
    I also had to change the picture settings on the lcd each time i was switching between sky and my xbox, so now i just use the crt for games in the spare room. Once the hidef machines come out i'll try again on the lcd, but if it becomes too much of a hassle ill be going back to my crt. Unless hidef gaming looks too gorgeous i may just have to get another lcd (heh, the mrs will kill me if i did)

    Doom 3 uses some kick ass heavy contrast and its fine in hi-def on my lcd. What you using to connect it up? Does your lcd have component input?

    No component on my lcd. I'm using the official advanced scart lead.

    Hopefully xbox 360 will be able to go into the hdmi port.....somehow.
