    just wondering if anyone else is having this problem

    whenever I'm playing the game in 1080i mode the there seems to be a light yellow hue covering the entire display
    then sometimes it'll be back to normal

    basically the display is switching between normal and yellow hue every few minutes

    I don't know what the hell's going on

    is this some kind of setting on my TV

    Please Help!!

    It might help if you start by telling us what TV you have. Are you set-up correctly in the Xbox dashboard?

    I have a samsung HCM4215W
    and I'm using monster component cables
    and I have 1080i enabled in dashboard
    the problem is not that I don't see the output
    it's that there's a yellow hue overlay

    Could you try different cables?

    if it's the cable then
    the game would look weird in 480i/480p right?

    but all games look fine in those modes

    No, the cables might not have enough bandwidth for 1080i... though I don't know what kind of visual distortion that might cause.

    I tried matrix 1080i on my infocus x1 and it looked like garbage! [​IMG].. not impressed at all.

    Dropped it down to 720p and now that was a different story.. the game looked amazing.

    maybe try it at 720p? (just turn off 1080i in xbox dashboard and matrix will default to 720p)

    Hope taht helps

    Since it's a one color tint, it really sounds like a cable issue.
