Recently I decided to dust off one of the first X360 games I played and give them another go for the remaining achievements. One of such games is Feeding Frenzy.

After I booted up the game, it threw an error saying it can only run in PAL-60 (Hertz I presume?). So I went into Display Setup on my Xbox, but there is nowhere for me to switch from PAL-50 to PAL-60?

I use a computer monitor for my Xbox. It has both VGA and HDMI inputs. I use the HDMI one.

How do I switch to PAL-60 on my monitor so I can play Feeding Frenzy (or any PAL-60 games) again?

This is a setting on the Xbox itself, no the TV/monitor, however, as seen in various places, the setting isn't accessible on the Xbox when connecting by HDMI.

What you need to do is get your standard Xbox display cable, connect it to a TV and make sure the switch on the cable is set to TV, after that the setting to display on PAL 60hz will be available, once you set it you can go back to your HDMI cable.

I will give it a try. I think I still have the composite cable from when I first purchased the Xbox. – deutschZuid Jun 11 '12 at 22:21
