    Well Ive had my Sweetspot for just over a week now and together with my Mark Grant cable and Dscaler I am using it to watch Sky+ at 720p.:thumbsup:

    The image is very nice on my 8' screen.

    I have however tried to use the spare s-video input to connect my X-Box but I am having a problem with the image.:thumbsdow

    The X-box is chipped to play both NTSC & Pal.
    I presume (possibly incorrectly) that the x-box is still outputting a pal signal regardless of source/software
    When i play pal games they are fine.
    When i play NTSC all I get is B&W image.
    Dscaler defaults to NTSC in "image source" but it's not an NTSC signal.
    If I try and change to Pal60 or any other Pal setting all i get is an unstable image or B&W at best.

    Is there a solution to this? :lease:

    I should add that if I connect the X-Box using s-vid directly to my DLP then everything plays fine. So it is not the pj at fault.
    Is the Sweetspot Pal only, if so can it be modded to accept NTSC?

    Thanks

    Edit: sorry, misread your post! Why not try the Hi Def kit seeing as your Xbox is chipped?

    Hello

    What does the hi-def kit consist of and why should it work over s-video?
