    1. Guys,
      please HELP!!!
      I’ve followed all the instructions concerning changeover from PAL 50 to PAL 60. After setting PAL 60, xbox writes that it will check whether the system may work with PAL 50 and the previous settings return. What shall I do?

    2. I don’t have an AV Connector for video just audio as I have Turtle Beach Headphones and I have a straight HDMI Cable I have an Elite console, my tv says it’s running in 60H but I try to play Hitman Blood Money and it says it won’t work in Pal-50
