Hi there,

Iím experiencing a strange thing on my Xbox: the video output is stretched in the vertical way.
It already shows while booting up my Xbox: The logo is verticaly stretched.
Circles look like ovals. For example, the tachometer in MotoGP is an oval where it shout be a round circle.
The same goes for the wheels of the motorcycle. Another game where it's clear that the picture is stretched is Sega GT.
Does anyone know a way to adjust this problem or whatís causing this?
It should be noted that my onboard flash is modded.

I hope someone has a solution. It's quite annoying. sad.gif

Thanx for your input.

check in your dashboard for what tv you have it setup for. if it is set to widescreen but is viewed on a regular 4:3 tv it will appear as you describe.

While you're at it, if you're listening to your games through two speakers, you might want to reset the audio settings to "Stereo," not "Dolby Surround."

Remember, changing the setting in your Xbox doesn't actually upgrade your A/V equipment! tongue.gif
