Hi Guys.  Have any of you tried the Pound HD Link Cable? Here is a link to their site: Please login or register to see this link.

I have watched YouTube reviews from Metal Jesus Rocks and the Immortal John Hancock and they seem to like it. I have heard it has issues with a v1.0 XBOX. Just wondering if you guys have any experience with these cables and if you would recommend them or not. Thanks.

The issues were with 1.4/1.5 Xboxes, and Xboxes that have had their shielding removed.


I've used it. They're servicable, if you have no way to use component, but if you can, I'd definitely recommend the official Microsoft component cables (or making your own) over the Pound HDMI. Or if you really need HDMI, maybe look into the N64Freak HDMI cable.

Thanks Forlorn Penguin. I was hoping the Pound cable would work because they are a lot less expensive than the official component cables. I guess I'll try to find an official Microsoft component cable.

I bought a Pound HD Link cable that recently became available on Amazon and wanted to you let everyone know my experience with it just in case anyone else was thinking about getting one. I have three xboxes: a v1.0, a v1.1 and a v1.4.  The v1.0 is tsop modded, the v1.1 is softmoded (sharp) and the v1.4 is stock. I felt the cable worked very well with the v1.0 and v1.1 models, but not so well with the v1.4.  With the v1.0 and v1.1, I tested the pound cable on an older 50 inch Panasonic plasma tv and a fairly new 60 inch Vizio tv. I couldn't really see any difference between the pound cable and the monster component cable I use primarily. With the v1.4 there was some interference on the screen that wasn't present with my other two xboxes.

      Hi.  I ordered a Monster Cable Lightwave 100X Optical Cable from eStarland to connect to the Monster Cable component cable I also purchased for the original Xbox but the dunces sent me just the 10' Monster Cable optical cable and no toslink adapter to connect it to the component cable so I can get 5.1 surround sound with my OGXbox.  Is this a standard toslink adapter that is readily available or is it one of Monster Cable's proprietary monsters?  In either case, where can I get one? Thanks for any help.
      ETA: added photo of what the toslink adapter looks like, btw.

      Hi Guys. I received the Hyperkin HDMI cable today that I ordered a few days ago. Unfortunately it didn't perform any better than the Pound cable, in fact I think the Pound cable is better. I have five XBOXs; three v1.0s, one v1.3 and one v1.4.  All of my XBOXs have the Conexant video encoder except for the v1.4 which has a Focus video encoder. Of the five systems I have, two of the v1.0s work well with the Pound cable and the Hyperkin cable, (no interference or noise in the signal). But with one of the v1.0s as well as the v1.3 and v1.4 there is noise and interference with both the Pound cable and the Hyperkin cable, although it's worse with the Hyperkin cable. Also, when I called Hyperkin today to discuss this with them and ultimately request a refund, they were quite rude. I had high hopes for this cable but was left very dissapointed. Just wanted to share this with everyone incase you were considering getting one. I wouldn't recommend it.
