    just bought me an xbox after waiting for a while.. now link play is on for me and my m8's

    all good I say

    connected via the AV dongle on my 9700pro AIW and looks bloody awesome..

    just connected it today but am highly likely to be trying to perhaps record some game play and check out how that works

    as it stands I am impressed with the capture quality of images on my tv window

    just wanted to throw that out there :D

    I've been playing splinter cell on my xbox for about three weeks now and can't seem to get past the training. Is it me or is that game really hard. Oh, I also got enter the matrix.

    Could you post one spectacular screenshot? I hear the XBOX supports hi-res. Does it run at hi-res on the computer?

    hmm... the only output from the xbox is RCA... or s-video if I convert it... I am using the ati AIW dongle for a/v where I plug in the RCA and blam.. it shows up on my tv tuner thinger... all I have to do is change input from cable to composite (or s-video if I get the converter)

    I don't know how the whole high def thing is supposed to work because the current output is like I see on tv... I HAVE to drop the resolution from 1280x1024 otherwise the edges blur some... the game is designed to output @ around 640x480 or 800x600 I think... so I drop it to 800x600 and it looks just peachy...

    I'ma gonna get a coupla screenies later today :) will post then...

    looking around @ a few vga output thingers...

    if anyone can find a link for a RCA input/dual vga output thinger for the xbox... I would greatly appreciate it :)

    my price range is around 50 odd bucks...
