“Why don’t you check if there’s a switch on the cord?” my brilliant Maureen suggested.
EUREKA! OF COURSE THERE IS!
How could I forget the simple switch on the 360 A/V cable to switch between HDTV and regular TV?!? I don’t have an HDTV, so I flipped the switch and ta da! It worked!
Now I feel like a royal knuckleknob, and I paid for it by shipping out my non-broken cables, but with Dustin loaning me those cables for the foreseeable future at least I can play my 360 again. Still, you’d think that Xbox customer service would ask me about that switch when I described the problem as one of the first things to troubleshoot…
Anyway, we all played a boat load of Soul Calibur IV last night, so I’ll have some kinda impressions or thoughts up in the not too distant future. In short: it rocks.
Don’t forget that Xbox Live is offline today for Microsoft’s preparations for a “brand new Xbox experience!”
