Hoping someone will be able to help,
I have bought a soft modded xbox from the states.
I got a 2tb hd with the power converted to UK power supply.
However when I plug it into any of my tvs using the component cable, when I start it up.
The sound works fine but the picture keeps cutting in and out.
I am assuming that it has something to do with the xbox out putting NTSC and the tv being Pal.
It boots into unleashx and I have tried changing the output in the settings, it will not save the changes.
I have tried it on all my tv's one only flashes every now and then, but the worst is my bedroom tv which stays black most and flashes to the dash for less than a second.
I am not technically minded so any help while greatly welcomed please remember baby steps, please don't assume I will know terms or apps related to modding, I thought by buying one pre modded I would only have to work out how to transfer files using the FTP thing I have been reading about.
I have also launched Xbmc and it do it on that too.

I have used the component cable with my own xbox and it works fine, my xbox is not modded and is from the UK.
Also the tv in my bedroom which is the worst, if left for an hour or so, then switching it back on it shows the picture for a couple of mins before starting to flash, but does not take long before it is almost a permanent black screen again.
Also I was under the impression that I would be able to access the normal xbox dash by starting the xbox using the eject button, but this does not work, it just boots up into the unleash dash even with the disc tray open.
I am starting to think I might have been ripped off by the person who sold me this, his website looks professional, but already on day one, I am noticing things apart from the picture issue which is clearly the biggest one! which is getting me worried.
Stupid things like it coming with a 2 pin plug even though I asked and it was agreed that it would come ready to use in the UK.
Anyone in the central belt of Scotland I am willing to arrive with pizza (and my xbox) if they are willing to give me a hand / show me how to get everything working.
Anyone else online who's answers help to solve my issues, I am more than happy to turn up with pizza to you the next time I am in your area / country
