Problems w/ 360

I recently bought a used 360 and it works fine except during the cutscenes in games. During Gears of War during any cutscene the audio rolls along perfectly, but the video does not catch up and lags behind often freezing. This isn't a problem w/ regular xbox games only 360 titles. Also when playing 360 games my system seems obnoxiously loud. Does any one know what could be causing these problems?

My Playstation 3 has stopped playing speech sounds properly. On FIFA there is no commentary or David Hayter EA Sports intro. And in Metal Gear Solid 4 during the cutscenes as well as the Codec, most speech...

I hope this helps:

On the XMB, go to
Settings; Display Settings; and choose Video Output Settings.

- Click Video Output Settings.
- Choose HDMI
- Choose Custom
- Tick all of the boxes - Only the ones that your TV supports.
- Move on and the PS3 will test the settings. Screen will go blank and return.
- Press X to save settings.
- When it has finished saving the video settings, choose "Set Audio Output Settings"
- Choose HDMI
- Choose Manual
- Tick the boxes that your TV can support and move on and save settings.
Tip: If you aren't sure which ones your TV supports, go back and choose Automatic and then Press Enter to save settings.

If it fails, call Sony. If its a particular game, then maybe a patch is needed for that game.

The consul keeps stopping mid-game & the screen says 'disc unreadable' although disc is perfect

2 things to try here. The simplest is to put a disc drive cleaner into the dvd drive and run it a few times. If this doesn't solve your problem, consider installing the game to the harddrive. Sometimes this helps especially if the error occurs during loading or cutscenes.

360 won't play a certain disc

i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war.
i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one.
and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.

Xbox 360 will not play Star Wars Force Unleashed

I'm having the same problem, I think it has problems because the cutscenes are rendered in real time (though I can't confirm this).

You should try copying the game to your hard drive, then running off the hard drive, and see how you go. I'm about to go and do that myself.

Good luck :)

No Audio for 360 Games

Hey Ap0calypse,

Well, a couple of things may have happened. Even though it sounds like you didn't touch anything.

Sometime if you run the system at a higher display setting then what a game is intended, you'll see things like this occur. For example, setting your 360 to run at 1080p, when the games' max is 720p. You will see distortion, or nothing at all, and maybe even the video, but no sound.
