RCA T.V. Specifically For XboxRCA has released the first wave of Xbox specific televisions meant to enhance the gaming experience. The "Xbox Ready" television will include a new connection called the RCA VPORT, which promises to deliver the most spectacular picture quality and detail the Xbox can provide. Here is how RCA described their new technology: This new connection takes advantage of the Xbox systems ability to output component video signal levels, and feeds the signal through a single connection cable. In addition to an Xbox connection point, the jack also doubles as a second component video input. This allows users to simultaneously connect two devices with component outputs, such as a DVD player and satellite receiver or a DVD player and an Xbox. Playing Kabuki Warriors while watching Rambo: First Blood with picture-in-picture (included in a few of the models) sounds like quite an intriguing way to spend my weekends. RCA will offer eleven analog television sets that are each equipped with the VPORT technology. The eleven sets will come in 20, 27, 32, or 36-inch screen sizes and each will include Gemstar TV Guide technology.
