I was wanting to, just not able to. Got a 32" tv for Black Friday and was setting it up on my computer and didn't have a spare HDMI cable for the 360. The one downstairs is so buried in my entertainment center I can't get it out without a dismantle. Then when I finally got the tv hooked up, the color seems off. Finally got the resolution about right, and went into iRacing to watch Tux race, the colors are off. Bad. Then went into another game, and the colors are worse. I finally got the color to the point where on this site where it says post a reply and all that stuff, that that's finally yellow-ish. Just not having a good time with this thing yet Sad

Rem, alot of TVs can't handle computer output colors and resolutions. Make sure you've dialed your computer back to the minimum settings, then see what the TV does. If it's good, start moving up in the settings one step at a time.

Also, if you're wanting a better resolution/color combo, you should use the PCI or DVI-D cable.

What kind of TV is it anyway???

Well, tv quality might be the issue. It's an Apex LCD 32" tv. Got it from Target for Black Friday. I'm running a DVI-D to HDMI cable because the tv only has HDMI or VGA and I have no VGA from my computer. I'm debating returning it, I'd like to keep it but I don't know. Got my computer dumbed down to the tv's native resolution, but even still some letters are bolded while others are regular, colors are off, stuff like that. Oy.

Best Buy has lots of good deals on 32" TVs. Maybe consider returning the Apex? And if you go to Best Buy, stay away from Westinghouse.

Problem is, I've been working on this for a year now, and this tv was only $147. Best Buy is more expensive, and won't happen. If nothing else, at least I know I tried.

Good luck Rem. The only cheap TV's I've been impressed with are Vizio. 150 is hard to argue with though if you can get it to work.

Right now Samsung tvs are the best for the value and seems you can find em cheap if you shop around. I've had three now 24" monitor/tv(1080p) and a couple big screens. Love em.

So, what are you all running for times at Indy? I managed a 1:33 but just like last week, I can't touch it again. So I figure we'll be seeing some 1:29 or 1:28 but just wanted to see what I should be aiming at. You know, other than actually hitting that 33 again.

sounds about right to me, 33's - 34's are pretty good lap times
