    Currently I have my xbox connected via the advanced av pack using S-video.

    I'm considering hooking up my 32 inch JVC 32D502 "NON-HD" Tv up via component on the hd pack

    When I do this, are there any setting on the xbox control panel that I need to adjust so that I get the best picture possible. I've heard from other folks with HD tvs that there are a few setting choices. What about for non-hd's


    Thanks

    For non-HD's, there are no choices. The only choice for HD users is the option to enable 480P (and 720P, 1080i).

    I don't think you'll see a huge difference between your current S-VID and Component VID on your non-HD set.

    On Amazon.com, one reviewer mentioned on non-hd tvs you can set your xbox to display at 1080 something and it would crisp up the picture even more.

    Is this bogus?

    Yeah, it's bogus, 1080i only works for HD sets. The signal won't be usable on a non hd TV.

    I'd stick with the S-Vid if you dont have a HDTV. Component really only shines when you put it into HD mode.
