Hey guys, So @N64 freak posted his awesome PCB HDMI converter in another thread. With luck he will be able to make these available for everyone. Until such a time I am annoyed with having my DIY Component cable going into a cheap amazon converter. I figure it would be easy enough to do the "dirty version" where you gut a converter down to the PCB and solder wires to the mobo. In researching the pinout of the AV connector on the mobo i found a great post from a gent named William Quade. He did a nice write up on his blog about doing it and I thought i'd share it here in case someone else is interested.

Note: He admits his hole for the HDMI port is terrible and I recommend anyone who's doing this mod do it properly with a panel mount HDMI or at the very least, cut the hole with a dremel. His looks like a tiny bear was trying to get into his xbox but the point of the blog post was to show where you need to solder which is the important part.
So finally they are completely ready and for sale now
I can offer 2 Versions off the cable:
-The first offers stereo audio on the HDMI signal and 5.1/digital audio through the optical port.
-And one second does offer 5.1/digital audio on the HDMI sigbnal and through the optical port.
The price for the cable that only has stereo on the HDMI signal is 65€ (~87US$) +shipping cost 3,70€ (~4,30US$) and paypal fees.
For the fully digital version that also offers 5.1 through the hdmi signal the price is 70€ +shipping cost 3,70€ (~4,30US$) and paypal fees.
You can choose between black and white for the case color. I do also offer the Case with a cutout or as a completely closed case. You can easily illuminate the case with a couple 0603 leds and resistors. Solderpads for those are present!
Got a couple HDMI cables ready in both the full 5.1 Version and the version that only offers stereo through the HDMI connector.
If you have any questions just drop me a PM!
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!
