we need to take a look at these and figure out which pinout is accurate. The pins listed in my pic are definitely different than what are listed in Blake's.. the important point though is the mode select.. we need to confirm mode select grounding so that we can use this for forcing Component out. With a pair of diodes we could use an on/off switch to force component out vs AV cable

I think they just have the connector flipped over when they are counting the pins. That's why I included the one with the diagram. You can't make a mistake. I used it when I tapped into it, so I know it's right.

makes sense. I think that the mode select pins are still consistent, and the "what pins must be grounded" info should remain the same.. A QSB that fits over the AV bottom pins is possible with either a ribbon cable or header that could go to a separate PCB that has component etc out. That's a decent solution for the age old "where can i get good component cables" problem. forget a cable, just have straight up component out.

      I TSOP'd one of my Xbox's (it also has a new 250 GB disk I installed) and I was "playing" with HeXEn and can't boot to a dashboard any more.
      My question is given good hardware and a bootable HeXEn disk, how can I do a full reset of the hard drive with a fresh install?
      I am new to this and would like to get to the level that what an "Out of Box" Xbox that is TSOP'd would boot up to that is comparable to a fresh install of Windows on a PC.
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone,
      I recently bought an Xbox and on the first day I turned it on and it booted up fine. Days later I am now trying to turn it on again and nothing.
      No lights, no sounds. I have another Xbox and the cable works fine. 
      What do I need to do to fix this issue!
