Very Interesting indeed. Though I found some of them on my own, it's still a very nice find. Can't wait to get home and try that ipod plug-in and the Tversity.

TY for the link. I just was able to use #8 I moved my 360 to a new TV and had issues getting the screen to show up right.

All I did was what they said:

Quote
8. Reset your Xbox 360 video settings

Remember this one if you're in the habit of carrying your console to chum's houses and hooking it up to different displays. It can end up trying to output the wrong signal, so you can't see anything or get a flickering screen. Fortunately, there's a fairly simple fix if this happens. Remove any discs from the tray and turn the thing off. Then turn it on using a gamepad. As it boots, hold down the Y button, then hit and hold the right trigger. The video settings will reset to default, and you'll stop your sobbing.

I was already doing the you tube thing, it's great having those 1000's of links to you tube vids and being able to access it from my living room. I have a server that is just only for music, videos and other forms of entertainment including magic monkey training.

I signed up for the blog about two weeks ago.  Some of things that are written are pretty funny.  Here's my blog :  http://360voice.gamerdna.com/tag/tameanaka

I actually knew a couple of those already mainly by accident. lol

Like the first for example where your 360 can play on 2 screens at the same time. I found this out last week when I picked up a Dazzle for recording my Halo 3 stuff, I left the hi def cables plugged in, flipped the switch on the 360 to standard deff, and hooked the red, white, and yellow cables up to my dazzle. Plays in the editing program I use for capturing video, and plays on my TV. Very nice and convient for capturing video.
