    Hi all

    Trying to get my Xbox setup for HD on my plasma.

    I have a PAL modded Xbox
    I have switched it to NTSC via the enigma video selector disk. The plasma confirms this has changed.

    Can't find the mode settings (480p, 720p....etc). Have checked under settings in the video menu and aill I get is a choice of Normal, letterbox or widescreen settings.

    I am waiting for my MS HD lead. Do I have to wait for this before the settings will show up on the xbox?

    Yes, hi-def options only appear once high def output kit connected.

    If its a PAL xbox then your wasting your time, but yes you would still need the hidef kit and a component cable.

    An Leedavies has stated once you get the high def pack connected the options for 720p and 1080i will appear.

    Thanks, peoples. I'll wait for the lead.

    AML,

    >"If its a PAL xbox then your wasting your time..."

    Why is that? From what it've read as long as the XBOX's epprom has been set to NTSC then I have the output options (when I get the HD cable). The XBOX is modded so that it runs NTSC games and the Plasma will take any signal up to 1080i. (so essentially it is now an NTSC XBOX with UK power supply! :cool: )
