I am relatively new to this website, but I would like to compliment everyone on their willingness to help everyone. With that in mind, I need some viewpoints.
I do not own a HDTV. I wish I did, but my wife said it was either the 360 or an HDTV. I chose the 360 (have yet to get it though...grrr). Beside hijacking a Best Buy delivery truck, here are my options:
1. Keep the AV cable that comes with both systems and suffer through the AV video quality until I can get a HDTV.
2. Get a S-Video AV cord to play on our TV. I have read that if you do not have an HDTV but a TV with S-Video outlet, the picture is better than the normal AV cable.
3. Get a VGA AV cable and play on my 17 inch LCD laptop. I have heard that this is also the way to go if you want Hi Def gaming, but do not have the HDTV. I would also think that my computer's graphic card would have nothing to do with the quality of picture on my LCD.
One more question: Can I exchange for credit my HD AV cord or my AV Cord (depending on whether or not I get a Premium) for store credit toward one of these cables in EB, Gamestop, or BB?
In due time, I would probably get both S-Video and VGA cables. I was wondering if anyone had some ideas on this.
