VGA Adpators don't really give the best picture though, I have the progressive one that I've listed and that works fine, but the other one I have actually makes games look worse
is a list of games that support progressive scan, 480-720p (1080i is listed for some too). Most games on that list are US versions, PAL gamecube games
do not have progressive scan. PAL Xboxes do not have the option for progressive scan. I'm not too sure about PAL PS2 games, the system supports it though as I've played SotC in ProgScan.
PAL Gamecubes can output 480p, you need the component cable, freeloader and a US ProgScan game. Newer GC's don't have the port for the component cable, so its worth checking before you buy.
Component should make the picture quality better, or at least speed up the response time.
I was playing a PAL GC game through composite on the exact same TV, it looked crap and the colours were washed out, when I got the component cable it makes the games clearer and more colourful. If you're GameCube has the port on the back, get one.
The problem with the Xbox-PS2 2-in-1 cable is that the sound is affected. You need to turn the PS2 off completely at the back when using the Xbox. When you're using the PS2 you need to unplug the Component cable from the Xbox or unplug the Xbox. Get seperate cables.
