Problem with picture when connecting Xbox 360 to Blast City cab

Post by unGDLK » August 20th, 2018, 9:07 pm

I’m trying to connect a 360 to my Blast City via vga cable. The 360 is set to 480p and I set the dip switches on the Blast City to 31 kHz vga. The picture I get is divided in the middle (see image). What could be the cause and how do I fix it?

After some googling, I Think the monitor might still be in 15 kHz mode. I have to check my dip switches when I get home.

​Triple checked the dip switches. They should be right (off, on, on), but I still get the double image. :(

Is the Xbox definitely outputting @640 x 480?

As that image looks like the input resolution is too high for the monitor

Solved it! Despite what the manual I found said, off, off, on worked.​
