XBOX 360 and Component Video Problem

I have a fairly low end Daewoo TV. However it does have component video inputs which leads me to beleive that I should be able to get a sharper image from my Xbox 360. I purchased the component cables (Mad Katz brand, not official XBOX) and connected to the CVI on the back of the TV. When I turn on the system, I get an image, but it is two identical images in a sort of side by side split screen. The XBOX console is set to 480p and normal screen. Has anyone seen this before?

I've got the same problem

In reply to: XBOX 360 and Component Video Problem

I've got a Samsung TV that has component inputs and works fine with DVD progressive scan, and I too have the Xbox 360 set for 480p, but see a side by side image, any help out there?

I had the same problem but mine was because there is a switch on the cable(real XBOX) that switches it from SD to HD. look on the part that connects to the XBOX.

Also make sure your TV can take in 480p.
