    Does anyone else find picture from XBOX a bit too dark ??

    My display is SONY VPL-VW11HT front projector, and I've calibrated it with SMARTII+CC40R filter.

    If I feed 480p signal through Hi-Def Pack of XBOX, I always find the picture too dark compared to my DVD player and GameCube.

    My DVD player is SONY DVP-S9000ES, and it produce 480p signal.

    I don't find picture of GameCube dark, but only my XBOX.

    I have to raise brightness only when I play XBOX. But since I do not have a DVD kit for XBOX, I cannot calibrate my XBOX projector. But again, I don't think buying a DVD kit would solve this problem since XBOX only produce 480i with DVD titles. Interlaced signals are about 30% brighter than progressive signals.

    Does anyone know a way of setting a correct brightness for XBOX with displays ??

    Same.

    I have trouble seeing things in Halo....it's slightly blurry too (Svideo), but mostly dark (part of the atmosphere I guess).

    Hmm... I've never had problems in Halo...

    You might just turn the brightness up a couple of notches...

    But I usually play everything on the X-Box at my default ISF-calibrated settings... I have noticed that certain tracks in Rallisport Challenge can be a little dark, but if it really bothered me, I would just increase the brightness a touch.
