    Hi,

    That's my setup, and I'm noticing quite a bit of video noise in the games. Moire patterns, jagged lines, things like that. In fact, it almost looks like things are worse than they were with composite video. I know one questionable thing I'm doing is using Radio Shack A/V cable for component video. I heard that this particular cable is 3 lengths of 75 ohm video cable, but I'll take it out just to be sure. Other than that, has anyone else experienced anything like this? Are there any settings I need to change? I have my TV squeezed, and have the Xbox set to widescreen output.

    Thanks,
    Saurav

    What you are seeing is all of the flaws present in the source. video games ahve jaggies, and so on, fact oflife, for now.

    When you were using composite is was burring the imperfections, hiding them.

    Juts my best guess.
