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 Posted Image 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. Andrew ------------------ ICQ# - 119869807

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