how could i improve my xbox360 VGA cable settings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys, yesterday i bought the xbox360 VGA cable and attach it to my viewsonic 21" CRT pc monitor, and set the resolution to 1280x1024, and the reference level to extended, the problem is when u enter the game 2 black lines appear on the top and the bottom of the screen like your watching a wide screen movie, and the contrast of the screen is not that good, its on 100% now and i need more contrast, is there a way to make setting for the screen from windows and then try it on xbox? all my screen settings are on max but i need more brighter colors, any ideas?

consoles will only support tv resolutions therefore you will get the black bars if you set the resolution differently.

What games are you playing? And simply putting the Contrast and Brightness at max is not the solution. Mess around with them until it looks good.
