So finally they are completely ready and for sale now :)

The price for 1 cable is 70€ (~92US$) +shipping cost 3,70€ (~4,30US$) and paypal fees.

You can choose the case color and the color off the installed LEDs. The black case has the engraving on the top illuminated while the white case glows in the color off leds (need to take a good picture off that later!)

Right now i can offer 7 cables but there will be more in the future! (Only got 3 completely finished that's why only 3 are shown!)   Got no HDMI cable for sale right now!

To use the cable the Xbox needs to be set to NTSC region and then just plug it in and you connect your console to your hdmi TV.

@Jason Fenton No it doesn't affect your console at all! I'm from Germany so all my consoles are Pal ones. By default a Pal Xbox only outputs Component at 576i and once it's set to NTSC you can output 480p, 720p and 1080i.

And for anyone who's interested in how sharp the picture is at 720p here are a couple quick shots i just took with one off those cables:

@Crazyembereks Yes, just drop me a PM and we can talk about it. To buy something from me just drop me a PM that#s the fastest way :)

The Cable does support 1080p BUT the xbox doesn't! So no the xbox can only output 480p, 720p and 1080i.

If you want the internal version just drop me a PM and you can get one off course. Just needs a little modification to the backside off the case and a bit off soldering and you can install it internally. The internal kit is cheaper of course as i don't need to solder up the wires and the Xbox plug!

Will post a tutorial about it in the future but that will take a little more time till i find some time to do that so don't hold your breath for it!

Don't think it works in all games, some games support higher resolutions when a high-definition AV pack (this HDMI adapter) is connected and will use the max resolution they were built to use if the hidef modes are enabled: 480p, 720p, 1080i. Those that are only 480i can be forced to run in 480p with a BIOS that forces 480p.

Just like @KaosEngineer said. The Xbox decides about the resolution it outputs. You can force some games using a force 480p bios. But in general only the games that are made for HD will be displayed in that resolution. The cable doesn't upscale and outputs the same resolution the xbox throws at it!

The Maximum you can get from an Xbox classic are 1080i and i personally prefer the 720p but that's my personal preference!

Question about DD+ output. IIRC, it was only possible via the Xbox HD AV pack or Monster Component Cables w/ Optical Output. Does your HDMI include the digital audio output?

@TheStiz It does output DD through the optical (toslink) output.

Exactly like the official HD-av pack :)

Does it have audio via the HDMI connector to an HDTV?

Are these basically the same as the Wii to HDMI adapters with an xbox cable added to it or are you using a custom board? Just curious as I want to try to hack together my own. Are the files for the 3d printed case available? Thanks!

      Hey lads, I'm having a bit of an issue here.

      Recently softmodded my xbox and cloned a 2TB Hard Drive over. It has been working fine, I Ftp'd over some stuff and they run fine on the drive. So here's the problem.

      When I started my xbox today, my DVD Drive was working fine. Albeit I didn't stress test my Hitachi-LG, it immediately booted MechAssault which was in the tray. I've always had a sticky disk tray issue, so I keep a disk in tray so it will open. I Ftp'd over my stuff, moved to the new dashboard. The game also booted fine there. 

      Then I booted DVD2Xbox, and this is where everything stopped working. I tried to rip the game and it failed, about 5 files in, said it had failed to copy over 100 files. I tried to see if maybe the App was just acting up. So I went back to my dashboard and tried to boot MechAssault. It went to a black screen, and then rebooted the dashboard. So... I kept going. I went back to Rocky's softmod dashboard, and when the disc tray initialized, it read MechAssault as the title in the softmod. Hit "Launch Disc", and... no dice, it boots back to the dashboard. A friend suggested maybe clearing the cache, so I did. 

      After clearing the cache, I got the game to load, but first it went to a red patchy screen, and loaded 15 seconds after. I played a round of Grinder, but when I quit grinder... black screen, went back to dashboard.

      I can't stress this enough, it only stopped working the moment I ran DVD2Xbox. My fear is that I'll probably need to clean the laser, and if it doesn't work, it may mean I need to get a new drive. I couldn't unplug its power cable when I was softmodding [I was desperately careful], so I put it carefully on the table, It flopped over once, and I'm afraid that may be what has killed the drive. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

      I have an unmodded Xbox and would like to know if the following information I have learnt is correct if modding an Xbox. To softmod an Xbox you can use the Pal version of Splinter Cell Classic edition,  Also you can buy an Xbox softmod kit (2018) - A usb/memory card pre-loaded with the files needed to softmod an Xbox which includes Splinter Cell. You plug it into your Xbox and install the softmod by following the instructions.
      Also I have 2 questions I would like to ask. 1st - Do you need to delete your game saves on your hard drive before you do this or can you leave them on the hard drive as I would prefer not to delete my saves on the hard drive. 2nd question - If you then change your hard drive to a bigger one after you softmoded your Xbox to a 2TB hard drive, is this easy to do, or dangerous to your Xbox, and how much does a 2TB hard drive cost (in pounds or euros if poss).
      If you need to know what Xbox I have it will be the 1st Xbox as it came with a Thompson DVD drive (but got changed to Samsung by Microsoft after it became faulty-just for info).
      Thanks in advance for any info and advice you can give me.

      Hello all, I recently went to the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee (about ten years in a row now) and FINALLY scooped up an original Xbox with a few games. I quickly upgraded the HDD and here I am with it softmodded and looking at all it can do. 
      I am most interesting in some cool case/appearance based mods too if anyone has suggestions. The case is not perfect, and I really wouldn't even mind just a clean OEM shell...
