my 13 year old son has just saved up and bought himself the 60g xbox 360.
when he plays a game it tells him to switch to Pal 60 . when he does this the game is in black and white. the tv is an Alba and is about 3/4 years old. tried different leads etc but I think its time to get a new one.
so looking for a 19 in ( room is too small for anything bigger) possibly with freeview, for £150-£200. any recommendations. I will cross post this in consumer watch as well. many thanks.
Yes some games are only offered in pal 60 ( I've not come across this before). In theory a brand new TV should support this, but not all of them do and few seem to list whether they do or not. You need to ensure that yours will. A recommendation from someone who is actually using one at pal 60 would be best. Perhaps from one of your sons friends. If buying from a shop nail the salesman down to fact that you can return it if it's not compatible.
I think I've been a bit thick with this. I have been thinking and if the TV you get is HD then you can run the xbox 360 in HD mode, you will still have to set it to pal 60 to get the game to run. But then you switch to HD so there will be no problem. The only down side is that if don't have a HD xbox 360 cable you will need to get one. Make sure the TV and cable have the same connectors.
