    50hz or 60hz in PAL? which is better?

    Hey!

    I don't have a LCD TV so 480p is out of the question for me. What I wonder about though is whatever I should be using 50hz or 60hz? Which is better? Do they all work on all tv's? (mine is pretty old). Also, I have the RGB cable, does this change this in any way? I'm puzzled, what should I be using? I use 50hz now and it looks great, would 60hz look even better or what? I thought 60hz was for NTSC and 50hz for PAL.

    Would just any TV allow that or does it take a high-end TV or something?

    normal tvs do allow for 60htz but not older tvs. older tvs give a black and white picture if they cant support 60htz.

    So basically if I don't get a blackwhite picture when switching to 60hz I'd get a better picture that way, be it a noticably better one or not?

    yea if you dont get a black and white picture when switching to 60htz then you are fine. it should run at a smoother rate than at 50htz.

    I have a tv that doesn't support 60hz. Pity cos some games are 60hz only (Metroid Prime 2 and Geist for certain). Most gamecube games let you test out if you can use 60hz. I would say if its over 15 years old, you may have trouble.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.
