    I have my xbox connected via RGB (cheapo cable) and I've noticed red smearing happening on some games. It is particularly noticable on the red cones in PGR2 cone challenges. My xbox is modded and I've switched it to NTSC mode with the Enigmah switcher. Is NTSC mode likely to be causing this problem? Anybody else experienced this? I'm waiting for my HDTV component cables to arrive so I can use prog scan mode. Hopefully this will fix it.

    I have the same setup, but use the Official Microsoft HDTV kit, and have noticed no such smearing (when you run in progressive).

    'Tis probably your manky cables, m8.... Alternatively, your contrast might be up waaaayyyy too high.

    I use the official Microsoft component leads, and runs lovely in progressive on my uk machine, with a bit of fiddling of course :)

    Have a Tosh` 32zd26p myself
