i have a sumsung hd tv and hd companant cables for the xbox.
now its only a 26inch tv, and from what i can tell it does 1080i nativly, since it says hdtv 1080i in the casing of the tv (this confuses me cuz i though that 1080i was sposed to be used for larger screens) but it also does 480p and 720p.
my problem is with 3 games inparticular: MK: Shoalin Monks, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, and DOOM3 (<the worst)
what happens is, example, splinter cell, the light on sam fishers back (and his goggle thingy) leaves....well trails is the best word i can thing of... i assume you know what i mean..when i walk or creep the lights in the game leave a strange shodow like trail of the movement i just made.
doom3 is even worse, but halo or halo2 doesnt do it at all....or t.h.u.g.2, halo2 looks great w/ no problems at all. but doom3 halo2 and splinter cell are all in 480p so i dont understand whats happening. i have my ms dash (xbox is modded w/evox) set for 720 and 480 w/ 1080i turned off, as this seems to look the best for all games. i have treid messing with a custom video mode on my tv, adjusting brightness contrast and sharpness...(if any one would like to reccomend settings for these feel free :} )
to no avail.
so if any one would like to do a little investigating, or help me out at all i would really appreciate it, heres a link to my exact tv, a pdf of the manual is also on this site. This is my TV
