Thumbs up High deff. Xbox cable

Just bought the cable and its worth the money FYI. For $19.95 you can see almost high diff. games if the game has the 480p or the 1080i on the back.

I dont like it, because.. if you have agame that is not 480p 720i or 1080i... then you have to hook the box up to the composite video inputs to play... waste of time.. I just stick with the composite hookups.

Mine plays any game find through the HD cables. Just for kicks I hooked it up to another TV last night via the normal OEM cables, the picture looks like crap. HD xbox is the way to go

you have to go into the set up menu and do it there

Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart etc. basically anywhere that carries the systems will have the cables

Yeah, make sure you go to the XBOX setup screen and turn on 480/720...Hopefully, games will start coming out in 1080 sooon
My cable made a HUGE difference on my 65inch Sony...Just picked up the optical adapter and the surround sound it awesome!!
