As far as I know, you can't use component cables in 480i with any Xbox-Linux distro.

you have to use composite, rgb, or svideo if you want an interlaced signal, the drivers don't support 480i over component cables

Then your best bet would be to buy the Advanced AV pack (has S-video, compsite, and optical on it I believe), or to hardware in an optical out port so you use it with your composite cables. Otherwise, this probably won't be fixed for some time....

I also would like to run 480i with component cables. Seems like there shouldn't be any reason for it not to work. I play xbox games/XBMC/EVOX with component 480i with out a problem. But when I boot up Gentoox with the component connected the screen scrolls diagonally, or if I boot up Gentoox with the composite and then switch to component it turns black and white. Kinda wierd. Hope there is an easy fix.
