If you remember I tried to sell my xbox w/ enigma mod and evox dash. I ask a m8 to ask around where he works and someone had it. I took it to myu m8s and showed it him working, everything booting up etc...

Now a week later my m8 called and said the guy told him the xbox outputs black and white. (I did sell it in NTSC mode, btw im in a PAL region) He said he has tried it on three tvs all B+W. Newer TVs, from about the last 5 years are NTSC compatable, as was mine, which is why I had it in NTSC mode when it was sold.

Now I know I can take it back and Enigma switch it (and charge 10 pounds smile.gif ) but if after that it still dont work, what could be wrong, thats making it output in B+W?

As I said it was working ok when I showed it my m8, before he passed it onto this guy at work, would you refund him, even if he demanded it? I dont want to put my m8 in a alward position, but it worked when the guy got it.

Thoughts? uhh.gif

i wouldnt have sold a box in NTSC mode in a PAL region. Get it back off him and switch to PAL, and dont charge him for it u stingy git tongue.gif

That should be all thats up, or he could have a dodgy AV cable - i dunno, but def swap it to PAL

cant i just delete the enigma video mode file, which is located in with the saves files, surely this will mean there is no file there to force NTSC mode and the xbox will revert to PAL?

Edit, im going to email my m8 and tell him to pass this on:

Power on Xbox
Goto System Management
Goto Launch Apps
Goto Enigmah Videomode Switchdisc
Now press A for the PAL-EEPROM
Power off Xbox.

Xbox is now in PAL mode and should work in colour.

Should work shouldnt it?

Is he using an Advanced Scart? (RGB)

Some TV's will output NTSC in Black and White if u are using composite.

His TV's are prolly 60Hz compat. but will output in B+W unless an RGB cable is used.
