* What will your Xbox360 video look like?

Xbox/Xbox Games
I'm going to be on progressive scan, component video - but if you're not, here's an interesting article on what you can expect to see out of your Xbox360.

In terms of quality, consider RF to be your least desirable option. The acronym itself stands for "radio frequency." You probably used an RF modulator to connect your old Nintendo Entertainment System to the television. The modulator device takes in the original signal generated by the game console and outputs the RF-modulated signal to the television. You might be forced to use an RF connector if you have an older television with only an RF input. The Xbox 360 doesn't have support for RF out of the box, nor can you buy an Xbox 360-specific RF adapter, like you could with the original Xbox. Instead, you'll have to spend around 20 to 30 dollars on an RF modulator that converts composite or S-Video signals to RF. However, we recommend getting a newer television instead--upgrading to a used TV that provides for composite or S-Video connections might cost just as much.
I still bet it'll look just fine in 480i on, say, a 20-inch screen. But that's not the audience who are searching for ultra-clean graphics in any case.
