Ok. So I understand that the xbox comes with two different types of cables to hook it up to the tv. One is the standard cable with the red white and yellow plugs. The other is the high definition cable with four plugs one of which is blue... It will only show the standard definitions to tv with the normal cables and with the high definition cables you can activate (from the MS dash and recently from xbmc too) the high definition modes of the xbox.
My question is. Is it possible to trick the xbox to showing the high definition video to the tv without the high definition cables? Is it any use if it can be done? Can I see the high definition content with the standard cables?
Please be kind. I'm outta my mind posting this late on a friday night. Most of my posts sound like a five year old when they usually happen this late at night. I can do some clarification tomorrow morning or something when I'm sane.
your better off just getting the component cables for the xbox. i'd suggest getting the official microsoft type. they are actually cheap. i got mine for $10 of eBay.
