I have 2 xbox halo editions. the clear green ones.
I cannot seem to get the component cables to work at all.
the screen flickers, even before i modded the system.
so i modded one thinking it would just work, but still nothing.
what settings do i need to change?
i have the original xbox component cables, and a set from game stop.
sorry i tried to search the forum, but i keep getting error messages.

ok since noone responded, i found out the answer.
Halo special edition xbox does not like to use the component cables at all if you are using a tube tv.
I hooked it up to an HD tv and it worked awesome.
the original black xbox can use both types of wires on a tube tv, thats why i was confused.

That's surprising. I'm sure your results are correct, but the Halo Xboxes should be identical to ordinary Xboxes manufactured at the same time, apart from the colour of the case. Did you use the same CRT TV for both the original black Xbox and the Halo Xboxes?

yea it was the same tv that i have had a black xbox hooked up to for about 5 years.
I even went out and bought a second halo xbox thinking the problem was a bad video card or something.
same results on the tube.
I had the original xbox component cables, and a set from gamestop.
I cant remember but i even think it was happening before i even modded the system, thats why i went out and got another halo xbox and tried it out before i modded it, and it was the same issue.
the tv is a 30 + inch phillips tube.
I am just glad that i figured it out.

That does sound very odd but its an interesting discovery. I have a Halo Xbox as well and it just looks like an average v1.4 xbox on the inside. I don't own a CRT TV with component input so unfortunately I can't test my systems. I only have a flat panel.
