XBox Internal Hdmi Install

Recommended Posts

I've been asked about hot to internally install my HDMI mod into an Xbox. Well i finally found the time and did such an install properly!

As i don't like soldering wires all over the place i went a different route and made it a permanent install replacing the original Video Connector. Cause who would use an old composite cable if you have an hdmi out right? Audio is provided through the HDMI signal of course and it supports 5.1. And with the 3D printed plate to cover the rest off the opening it looks perfect in my eyes.

And the best part it does almost not need any modification to the Case! Well except trimming a tiny bit off the DVD caddy so it doesn't touch the PCB. The PCB itself does fit into any revision console and is relatively easy to install.

Any thoughts about the install?

[mention=226]XC-3730C[/mention] That's my own HDMI mod. I developed it myself and built it specially for this purpose.

Damn, do you sell that? Looks amazing!

God damn this looks so cool. I could bite my own ass I just bought a upgraded console from you and didn't wait the few extra weeks to see this. Any chance of you installing this on my 128mb ram board? :D

I'm assuming thats just a really compact component converter? Is the quality/color reproduction identical or virtual identical to the regular component output? Have you noticed any input lag (there obvious will be some but if its significant is the question). If you ever end up making a few more and want to sell it as a kit I would love to buy one.

Is there any ghosting or artifacts? Also, will you offer a system with HDMI that also preserves the AV port? Reason being is sometimes, I like to connect my Xbox to a CRT monitor via component.

Yes  it does work perfectly and took quite some time to develop!

For now i only have 3 finally installed boards and will possibly offer them later on. But for now there's no internal kit offered.

No i haven't planned a version that can be installed to that position while still beeing able to keep th original video port. As you would have to hard link the component mode and that deactivates the Composite video output so the sense would be gone ayway!

Man, if you got this into the hands of the guys over at the "my life in gaming" youtube chanel there is a horde of people (myself included) that would fall all over themselves to give you their money for an install kit (assuming the image quality is on par or better than component).

@ironsniper1 Yes, they will be avaylable for sale in a while. For now i just want to have a few out there to be tested be others. When all the feedback is positive i will offer them installed to upgraded motherboards or as a diy kit to install yourself. But for now they aren't avaylable in masses. Just the few i still have as prototypes. If there is interest in testing them preferably from people within europe i still have 3 i can offer right now.

If you need testing let me know, what’s the deal. I buy it and test it?

I concur - they are both clearly the heavyweight champions of the OG Xbox.

I live in the netherlands. 

I would like to test one as well,  to compare this to the mod i do right now.

I use a wii2hdmi converter,  the problem i have is that larger screens have problems with 480p in 4:3 ratio.

      I bought an xbox on ebay and now I noticed somethings I didn't before. Can anyone identify what is in the picture. I appoligize If  this is in the wrong category this is my first post. In the first picture it is those 2 dots next to the disc tray. In the second picture it's the blue output. And in the third there appears to be something coming out of the controller. Also this was advertised as an xecuter 2 mod chipped xbox, and I paid $90.

      A friend gave me back the xbox I made for him years ago.  I want to update it for my grankids.  It is chipped with an xecuter 2, is a version 1.6, and currently has an ancient 150GB hdd.  
      Primarily, I want to put in a new HDD, planning on a 500GB, and use a Startech SATA/IDE adapter with an 80 wire cable.  Then I want to add Coinops, and XBMC;  the XBMC primarily for karaoke.  Also a decent dash, thinking probably the last UnleashX.  I have copied all the contents onto a drive via ftp.  
      I am confused as to how to 1) install the new hdd and 2) how to install the dash/apps.   From what I read on the wiki and elsewhere, supposedly, I can just install the drive, boot, and the xecuter wizard should walk me through formatting the drive.  I assume that then I can put in the Hexen disk and it will install the dash's.  Is this right?  My xbox modding days are long behind me (even the 360 mod days, lol).  
      Any help is appreciated.
