Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
I have the original xbox bought back in 12/2001. I have used it off and on over the past 6 years. I had purchased the official HDTV Pack from Microsoft and connected it to my Toshiba HD Ready TV to play Justice League Heroes and it was just plain beautiful. This was like 4 months ago. I had left my Xbox unplugged from power since I was using another game console. I have recently plugged it back to power and the switched my television to the component output and my Xbox is flickering like mad, whether it is in Dashboard mode or in game mode. So I have tried 2 different HDAV packs and both cables are flickering badly. But when I switch back to the original A/V cables that came with it was working just fine. I tried the other component cable input and that too was flickering like mad. I had a Voom Satellite receiver for OTA HD reception and connected it to both component inputs and that was working great. So far, I have tried the 2nd version of the Xbox component cable and a Monster GameLink 400 (borrowed from friend) and they both failed and flickering madly. I'm suspecting it is the video port or some setting in the Xbox Dashboard lost its setting due to being unplugged for 4 months. I have gone in to Xbox dashboard and tried to change the Video Settings between Normal, Letterbox and Widescreen and none of that seemed to help. I have heard others say adjust 480p...I have never seen that option. Note I have never connected my Xbox to the Xbox live ever so if there is a download that might fix this problem let me know. Thanks in advance.
No I have the original Xbox from 12/2001. I was using the HD AV pack from Microsoft and that was giving me pretty good resolution. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/catalog.aspx?st=xbox&g=0&s=1&p=1&c=10
