I mentioned in another thread that I NFL2K3 on the Xbox looked great until players started moving around. Then they all became very blurry. I attributed this to LCD ghosting but others had some good input on 3-2 conversion issues (which are a bit beyond me right now).


I got an idea and started playing around with the Advanced Video DRC Palette thing where you choose between the level of Reality and Clarity.


By default it's set to 25-1 (25 reality, 1 clarity) and this left a very blurry picture in general. I moved it around and found that if I set it to nearly full reality and virtually no clarity, this blurring effect virtually disappears.


Is anyone able to shed more light on this feature? I would have thought adding more clarity would help. Instead, clarity seems to add blur which is a bit backwards to me.

You previously posted that you started tweaking in the service menu. Have you started this before setting DRC? The tweak guide suggests otherwise.


I would suggest you follow the order on page 2 of 12. You can skip the things you don't want to change, but the order is a pretty good one to follow. I have suggested a DRC setting of Reality 0 and Clarity 100 after many hours of looking at test patterns, but you can always go your own way if you want. I am not sure what each of these is doing, but reality appears to be some kind of extra enhancement.

Are you using component cables for your X-Box ??? NFL2K3 should be running in 480p so you shouldn't be able to use the DSC settings.


If you are not using component cables for your gaming, I HIGHLY suggest you do. This should clear up your problems.

I would be more than glad to consider that, but then I'm going to have a MAJOR problem. I have my DVD players taking one component input and I believe I will be needing the other one for the HDTV receiver coming to my house on Tuesday from Comcast. I don't think it has a DVI connection unless there's some sort of converter. If it's a choice between quality Xbox and HDTV or DVD, XBox will lose that battle. But yes, I would like to see that output.


umr, I did this after doing the tweaks. I didn't realize this was part of your order. Yet another reason for my PM to you on the other site. Any chance of hearing back shortly on that issue?
