Xbox Picture is Fuzzy, and sound makes picture worse
Hi there! My TV is very old and doesn't have the Audio Video Plugs. So I had to purchase an RF Modulator. When I hooked my Xbox Original Console to the RF Mod., the picture was fuzzy and the sound made the picture jump. I have it set to the right channel and hooked up the right way. So what is it? s it my Xbox, my RF Modulator, or my old GE Television?

Hello. Before you start replacing parts, make sure your connections are correct. It sounds like you have connected a composite source to a component input. Composite is three RCA plugs, a yellow for all of the video, and a red and white for audio left and right channels. Component is five RCA cables, green, red and blue for video, and red and white for audio. if composite is connected to a component input, the picture will be black and white with squiggly lines all through it.
Hi, and yes there is hope, there's a saying that when something is tedious and or boring to read "it reads like stereo instructions ".The first thing to make sure of is you have a rather stiff connecting cable called a "TOSLINK" cable this has squarish ends and plugs into the "DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT" of the x-box 360 and then plug the other end into whichever input your using for the x-box. A dead giveaway to the jack to use on x-box is that it may actually be lit up red while playing. it also may be labeled "PCM/LPCM" versus digital audio. Anyway that should get you your surround sound on your stereo. Thanks for choosing FixYa, Let us know if there's anything else we can help with,and good luck, Prodzilla
i had the same problem, and it was the rf unit itself. to resolve this problem i went to radio shack and purchased a special connecter. one side is an rca (male) to rf (female). when attached to a standard peice of cable wire, it acts as an rf unit. Also works with the sega genesis. hope that helped
Hello, Are you using a newer flat panel or and older TV? IF you are using a newer TV the picture will never look very good. IF not, did you try working with the RF adapter? Check all connections. If all else fails try to get another RF adapter to see if that helps. I remember this being a bit problematic even when these were new. Wish I had a definite answer for you! Good Luck - Dr. Know
If your PS2 has an RF module, it is possible that the PlayStation 2's RF unit is interfering with your reception. Even if you are using the Audio/Video OUTput of the PS2, the RF module is also working and throwing out an output to either Chs 3 or 4. By switching off the PS2, the RF module would likewise be off.
If by switching off the PS2 does not solve the problem, it is also possible that the Video input board of your TV has been slightly damaged. I doubt if it is a major repair and offhand would probably involved minor components or simply re-soldering.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
