Hard modded Xbox question

I've got a hard modded Xbox using xecuter 2 chip. I've got an official Microsoft Component cable.

XBMC menu boots in 1080i, XBMC video output settings are 'ticked' 480p, 720p and 1080i.

I've checked main official Xbox settings, again, all settings are 'ticked'.

My problem, whenever I load Xbox discs straight from XBMC they only appear to work in 480i.

If I mess about and quit XBMC to normal Xbox screen, games will load in the improved visual settings (where available).

Any Xbox experts with any advice? It's a total faff about going through menus etc just to load a disc.

Was just browsing and spotted this. You describe a problem similar to the one I had some years back. I solved it by using this and switching to NTSC.... ... pal.13817/

I use UnleashX as my dashboard by the way. That might be important.

Yeah, Mr Messy has got it right. Install the enigmah software, and switch the video to NTSC and it should run nearly all games in progressive 480p (some just won't, but its not many from what i've tried).

Also, once the switch has been made, wait till the dashboard (ie Unleash) menu is up before inserting the disc. If the disc is in before the dashboard comes up, or is switched on/off, my pal games run at default 480i (or 576i), where as they force 480p if i load them from Unleash dashboard.
