    Original Xbox Complications

    Man, trying to search up original Xbox problems in Google makes me hate the Xbox 360 for continuously getting in my fucking way of searching.
    Sigh.
    Onto the real problem!

    So I have my Xbox hooked up through component, and it's worked fine forever, until now.
    When I boot it up, everything's fine. However when it goes to run a game (Total Overdose, for example), the video cuts out, but the audio still plays. So I've tried unplugging the cables, cleaning them, taking apart the Xbox, cleaning it, and tried again. Same problem, menu works, game does not. So I started lowering the resolution from 1080i, to 720p, to 480p, then 480i. It now only works in 480i for some reason. My television supports 1080i as I've played games of that resolution before on it (It's an EDTV).

    So what could cause this issue? I know component cables are cheap, but I'd rather not buy one then find out it could be something else wrong.

    You lost me when you started talking about changing resolutions on the original Xbox. Do you mean you were changing the resolution of the screen you were outputting it to? By component cable I guess you mean YPbPr, does it work fine with scart?

    The original Xbox can output a resolution upto 1080i using component (YPbPr), you just have to select that resolution in the system, have a game that supports it, and hook it up through component. Admittingly very few games do 1080i on the Xbox, but a handful of games do 720p (Like Total Overdose).
    As for SCART, that's useless.

    Huh, did not know that. Well I don't think you'll be able to get any help on here 'cause that's some real specialist experience that's required.

    -360 added to the search gets rid of at least the obvious noise.

    The TV is accepting 1080i/720p from other sources (HDMI or component)?

    Maybe a component->HDMI converter thingamagic would help, if the TV doesn't work with component properly anymore.
