Well I installed Media Player 2.4 and it worked great. I did not change settings as I figured it worked with everything I threw at it. Woke up this morning and my son tells me there is no video... but he can hear sound. So I think hmm.. it was working yesterday. the only thing I did was put media player on. I have component cable running from my xbox to a Panasonic 47" HDTV Wide screen (NTSC). I have the orginal cable that comes with the xbox. I installed it and now it works fine (I want my component video to work smile.gif ) Is it a bad cable or something mediaplayer did.. weird thing is I have the X-cuter 2.2 pro with an off switch. I turned off the modchip, inserted a orginal copy of Soul Calibur 2 and I could only hear it.. <sign> is it the component cable or media player?

well if the standard cable works then i would venture to say that the "component" cable is the problem. but just what do you mean by component cable? you mean s-video?

yeah that would be composite. the component cables are the yellow, red, blue cables that you use for HDTV.

My bad.. I have the component video (ie reb,blue and green) the one that came with it is a rca cable which works fine.. I guess I am heading to gamestop and buy another cable.. then return the bad one.. muhaha.gif

Did changing to a new component cable fix your problem? I have soul calibur 2 and it will only run with the regular RCA cables. If I try to run it with the component cables, I just get sound. Every other game runs fine with the component cables. If you found a fix, please let me know. Thanks.

Yup I fixed it.. It wasn't the cable.. make sure you know what resolutions your HDTV can handle.. I set the xbox up to use 1080, 720, 480.. and Soul Calibur tried to use 720. My TV doesn't support 720 so all I got was sound.. I took the 720 out of setup and low and behold my picture came back. Thanks for all the help guys. beerchug.gif

Change the 720P setting in the MS dashboard to no.

Go into the MS dashboard, select settings. Then select Video. If you have the HD pack you will then see 4 options. Video Mode, 480P, 720P, and 1080I. Set the resolutions that your TV supports to yes and the ones it doesn't to no. The game will try to use the highest resolution that it supports that is marked with a yes in your settings. In other words if the game supports 720P and you have 720P set to yes, the game will try to play at 720P. If your tv doesn't support 720P you will get a garbled screen, but the sound will work. If you set 720P to no, the game will play at the next lower resolution that the game supports (480P). Hope this helps.
