    Ok... Trying to connect my XBox to my old PC monitor for some HD gaming madness...

    After wasting a few hours trying to reset the video settings cos I was a tool and changed the resolution to something silly, I've now got it to a stage where the screen looks nice 'n' HD

    It looks lovely but there is a slight problem... the screen is green. The red pixels must be getting lost in the mix somewhere and the whole screen has a rank green tint to it.

    Now I'm almost certain I've had and solved this problem before with my old Xbox but this has fucking stumped me. I can't remember what I did to make it normal.

    I set up everything right (as far as I can tell) and it's all fucking shitty looking.

    Anyone had any similar problems? Know how to fix it?

    Muchos appreciated if ya can ;)

    Man I tried that before. This one time got so into it I was like convulsing and my tongue was trying to rip itself from my own face because I was speaking that religious language that strangely sounds very similar to people trying to make conversation when they've had too much LSD. My own face I tell you... Was scary shit man. Took a few codines and a blow job from a nun before I calmed the fuck down. Was definitely a sign of a higher being though.

    I'm in training to be a bishop. x

    Yeah but no dice :(

    Think it's probably just a dodgy connection. Really annoying though because I may end up buying a new cable to find out it's not even the cable that's not working! Fuck.

    haha remember that old chestnut with the gay porn image burnt into the lcd on a huge flatscreen? someone was giving it away for free cos his flatmate had left it on when he was away for a few months with gay porn on pause? haha. yeah. why dont you watch some gay porn on your tv. see if that doesnt solve any issues you might have with customer support.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to logikz again.

    Got it sorted. Just had to wiggle the cable shit loads and then precariously balance it on a load of books. The wonders of technology eh?
