    First of all, I apologise is this question has been answered before. I have searched the forum, and found a lot of information, but am still a little confused.

    I want to connect my standard PAL XBox to my Panasonic PWD6 plasma. The only free connector that I have is the PC input.

    I have a lead that has the PC connector on one end, and component connectors on the other (I used to use this for DVD input) . I was thinking that if I get the MS Hi-Def pack for the Xbox, I can use this lead to connect to the plasma, thus eliminating the need for switch boxes on my other inputs.

    My questions are as follows:

    1. Is the above correct?

    2. As I will not be able to output progressive on a standard UK Xbox, will this set up give me any better picture quality than using an MS Advanced SCART lead, and a switch box?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    get the MADCOW box, I paid £12.99 for mine delivered it has

    video outs
    component, SCART, s-video, composite
    Audio outs
    Phono, digital co-ax, digital optical (TOSlink)

    what more could you ask for?

    PS
    UK unchipped xbox cannot do progressive output
    UK chipped xbox + Enigmah Video switcher (switch to NTSC) can

    RBG SCART is as good as you can get without progressive
    (RGB SCART has higher quality signal than interlaced component)

    the reason I ask is because interlaced component has a horrible banding effect on my LCD, I know us ask why interlaced?

    well certain live games Like PAL Indycar racing 2k5 wont run in NTSC mode, so I have to revert my xbox to PAL to play it
