Awwww Nuts!.....

 

Anyhoo, I've put your conundrum forward to the OXM forums, I even joined up just to ask this question. I'm hoping I'll get a quick reply. I also looked like a real fanny by noticing after I posted the thread, that they have a forum dedicated to such problems. I'm just glad Russ won't have to move it.....

Right, here's what you have to get......

The guy that responded was quite rude, the word 'Tosser' would describe him best, but in his defense, he did post these links.

 

Now I'm sure you don't have to get these off of Ebay, but they are good examples of what you need. I would guess Dixon's, Curry's, Comet, Argos and the like sell something along these lines :)

Remember that the 360 is designed to work in HD, so as soon as you try to run it through anything lower than component, then you're immediately dropping quality.

 

RF is the lowest quality you can get, so you're wasting having a 360 - you might as well have bought a plain xbox.

If only he wasn't Scotish..............

 

.........he could get a new telly too.......;)

 

More like, if only he was paid better, he could get a new telly too. I put it off until i can get a new telly methinks. And buy a DS instead. Cheeky sassenach!:P

Had another response on the OXM forums, pretty much backing up what Fill and K.J were saying. The picture quality will be piss poor using RF.

 

Do you have the Friday-Ad in Scotland? or anything along the lines of people selling stuff locally in a free paper? or even a used TV centre? I'm pretty sure you could pick up a second hand tv with scart for £30 - £40 quid (English pounds, not Scotish play money :P)....

 

The DS is awesome, mind. So if you can't afford a 360 yet, it would be my second choice too :)

And while I've got you here Andrew, why in the hell hasn't V1 got Bankshot Billiards 2 yet?

Gutted man, gutted. Will put off for now, get telly next month, and xbox 360 the month after, the choice of games should be better anyway. Cheeky monkey wyndorf with your cheap "tight Scotsman" jibes! Love it! Been a while since anybody resorted to that.......but if its cheap comedy insults you're after, step outside Mr Poopy Pants.......
