I have a Samsung 46" DLP. We just connected my son's Christmas present, an XBOX 360 to it via the included RCA connects. The picture appears to wave all over the screen and looks like it can't get proper video sync with the screen. All cables are secure. I've tried every RCA input on the tv and they are all the same. I'm not talking about audio/video sync, I'm just talking about the picture.

The screen will sync square and fine on certain scenes, then immediately goes back to a wavy mess.

Any ideas how to resolve it today?

I'll be ordering a component cable upgrade kit for the xbox but that won't be here for a few days.

PS: As a test, we connected the xbox to our main tv, a Samsung 52" lcd, via the same connection cables and it works flawlessly. So, there are no problems with the xbox or the cables.

I assume when you use the term "RCA cables" you mean component? Using the term "RCA cable" usually means composite.

Have you connected anything else to the component in?
Are there other component inputs?
Does that game have a HDMI out?

Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
