    I dont have an S-VIDEO input in my tv, anyone of you know or have any gadgets to solve this? (XBOX I believe requires S-VIDEO or composite.)

    Choose one.
    1) Use composite if you can
    2) Buy an RF modulator otherwise
    3) Time to buy a new TV

    Bert,
    Your TV doesn't have S-Video, but does it have a composite connection? If so, that's the default connection type that the Xbox ships with.
    Now, if your TV has no inputs other then RF cable, I'd suggest buying a new TV along with your Xbox [​IMG] Otherwise buy a Xbox RF modulator (if MS doesn't have one at launch, I'm sure some third party will)
    Personally, I wouldn't dare use the Xbox with a RF connection. Ughh, what a waste of system capabilities.

    Ok well then you'll be fine then. The Xbox ships with a composite cable connection(RCA - yellow[video]-red/white[analog audio])
    Since your TV has these, you'll be fine.
    Peace.

    you can get a cable that will pass svhs into composite, but its a waste if the system comes with composite cables
