Like i said, the menus are 480i. Therefore if you are using the VESA port on the X1 it will not work because it only supports 480p/720p/1080i
I am using an svideo cable from my PS2 to my X1 now since the component cables do not work. It will work in GT4 but you have to swap cables between menus and racing.
I'm following you.
Here's the thing also though, when I go to the garage and select options and then screen; at the bottom I can change it from "normal" to HD 1080i (replay only I understand) or 480p (mostly only when your racing..gotcha).
Now if I change it to 480p right there it asks if its ok to change it right there from Im guessing 480i to 480p; and then once I click ok I lose the signal from the svideo (normal ) then I quickly within the allocated 15 seconds switch the cable over in the back of the PS2 to the component RGB and still I don't have any signal (even forcing the X1 to computer instead of the video option).
So If I've selected 480p and the screen warns me it will then change to 480p, shouldn't I be able to see it after I click ok using the RGB cable? I know it reverts back to normal because I guess I can't see it to click ok within the 15 seconds.
Otherwise are you saying I would have to click 480p but even though the screen warns you its changing to 480p it really isn't until I get into a race? I just dont know how I could tell it that I see that ok dialogue box to keep the 480p setting.
Also are you using that VESA to RGB adapter sold at the infocus store? I ask only because there are actually 2 of those that are very similar other then one is 10 dollars (VESA to component) and the other is 30 dollars (M1 to component) and neither states they are compatible with the x1, one is x1a and one is x2 so I'm a bit nervous I got the wrong adapter.
Lastly (I know long winded sorry =( if I wanted to use the x1 with the ps2 to watch dvd's in 480p do I have to do anything else? Is it the same deal for DVD's where the beginning menu is 480i? Because thenuke is able to view DVD's in 480p so I'm wondering if that's using a progressive scan dvd player or using the ps2 with the VESA to RGB adapter.
I ask only because I threw in some DVDs and I get nothing for a video signal out those either.
Thanks all for your help in advance I know I'm kinda green to the Component end of things.
