My XBox will not display properly..the colors pulse in and out on my 48" Sony RPTV. It plays fine on the PIP, but not full screen. I have used the supplied cables and S-Video cable as well to no avail. I have plugged into each video-in to no avail. MS support says that they will not support on RPTV's.


Does anyone have any ideas on how to make it work?


Thanks in advance.:(

make sure the 480p, 1080i settings are turned on in the Xbox menu

I also had a problem with my XBOX and a Sony RPTV. Using the XBOX through an S-Video or Composite connection, everything was a shade of green. I then hooked it up to my 27 inch direct view and all was fine. That ruled out the problem being with the XBOX. After some fiddling and much frustration, I went out to my local gaming store and picked up the Monster component cables for the XBOX. I didn't really want to pay that much for them (I think they cost ~ $60) but really wanted to try out my new XBOX and didn't want to settle for running it on my 27 incher. I rushed home and hooked up the component video, and it actually worked. Unfortunately I had to disconnect my PS2 from the component input since my receiver only has 2 component ins and I was unwilling to unhook the DVD. Have you tried hooking it up through the component inputs?

No, I havent tried component video yet. Are the 480i and 1080i settings only available if your using component video?. My Sony RPTV is not an HDTV. Does that matter?

Since your Sony is not HD you will not be able to use the 480p and 1080i modes on the XBOX. I am in the same boat as you (no hi-def, yet...)

You can run the XBox at 480i into Component inputs using the "HD AV Pack" It costs $20 and includes all the cables except for a Toslink. I have my XBox connected to a 32" RCA TV and it looks quite a bit better than it did with the basic video connection.


Everyone with a 5.1 setup and an XBox should get the HD AV Pack just for the audio. Some of the games have pretty cool surround effects.
