  1. No they don't they're just stereo left and right no matter what revision board you end up getting. Which is fine by me because that's how I run my setup. If you require 5 1 audio. You can always bypass the HDMI converter directly from the dport motherboard running two wires to an RCA connection 4 coaxial 51 audio output. But 2 be honest the only thing that benefits from 5 1 audio output is original Xbox games. Most systems now are running 2tb builds that are rammed with emulation and Xbox games. If you consider everything that's on there maybe a maximum of 50,000 games. A very small percentage of that could actually take advantage of the 5/1 audio out... nes will not take advantage Super Nintendo Walmart take advantage. Sega CD will not take advantage Amiga system will not take advantage... the only thing that benefits from 5 1 audio is original Xbox games and I was surprised to find out that not the entire original Xbox Library supports it either you're looking about a little more than half of the library that supports 5 1 audio out. So out of a 2tb Xbox. Running maybe forty or fifty thousand games. The most I could take advantage is maybe around 400 original Xbox games. To me personally not worth the headache for this small boost in audio channels. But to each their own. If you go with the internal mod very easy to connect two wires to bottom of motherboard pinout in order to have the option of 5 1 audio out. Pretty much you bypass the Wii board completely.
  2. So a member of the group was asking for a Dport to dport wire he was asking other members if they had one available because he had one of those LCD screens that go on top of the Xbox and use a proprietary wire that connects from the Xbox to the intec inc screen.. I told him it was easy enough to make that it was just a few wires he could not be bothered. This got me thinking maybe I should make an easy-to-follow schematic for this. I did not do any YouTube searches or Google searches. I clearly went off my HDMI schematic and figured out the rest for myself. There was an image going around that shows the dport but it is backwards it shows the front view so in this image you will see that it's been deciphered so it's easier to follow well soldering. I did make one of these wires and had great success I used all brand new hardware that I purchased a little while ago. It is working great very basic wiring. I'm pretty sure this LCD does not provide video over 480i I think that's pretty much the max resolution I could be wrong on that this wire is designed to Output in 480i or your typical composite video signal. This pinout / schematic can potentially save a lot of money. I have not seen one of those wires alone on eBay it always comes with the screen so if somebody is looking for that wire it could be very costly pretty much what they want to pay for it. Not only that the same schematic can apply to somebody who has an RCA entertainment series Xbox Ready TV which has the proprietary dport input. In order to make this wire you can follow the diagrams exactly. Just make sure you add a few extra feet to the length in between. I know I bought one off Amazon and I think it cost me around 35 with shipping. This wire can be easily made from 2 $5 RCA wires. The schematic itself was made and designed by me maybe that's why it does not look the absolute greatest. I'm more of a Hands-On guy than the computer guy so I apologize but it looks pretty self-explanatory easy-to-follow what you do on one end you want to do on the other end. You should be fine the only concern is the jump wire pin 8 to pin 20... I have found if you only do one of the Xbox connections with this jump that connection has to be the one that's plugged into the Xbox itself. If you hook it up the other way around it will not display. So you can either remember to always plug that one in your Xbox or just make sure you jump both sides on both connectors. In order to not have to worry about that. In any event I hope somebody somewhere can benefit from this schematic took me a couple hours to wire up in a couple hours to make the schematic itself. But if it helps at least one person in the community save money than it was totally worth it 4 wire I just used regular RCA's. I'm guessing if you wanted the best kind of quality on this you can always use Xbox 360 shielded component cable wire since that is a high build grade for sure..for 5.1 audio out just tap into pin #3 ...thank you very much Frank
  3. HELLO im looking for the xbit app for windows xp to run on my xp pc...does anyone have a download like for this solfware?? does the same app flash v1.0xbit and v1.5xbit?? i have a working chip running m8 now ...but would like to add x2 5035... anyone have flashing hardware??? thanks
  4. I've tried changing fans 70 mil 80ml temperatures have went up. It's a waste of time plus you got to hack the inside of the box your best bet is to get a good condition donor from an original Xbox believe it or not that's designed for that actual airspace. You don't have to take my word for it you can do things the hard way and find out when you see your temperature creeping up
  5. Just wanted to inject the comment here I tried the internal mod with these adapter boards makes for very easy installation. All you have to do is remove the original Deport and solder everything together. Very simple takes about the same amount of time as making an Xbox to HDMI external adapter. But not having to worry about using shielded wire or not. This is the best way I have found to get the best picture out of this adapter regardless of chipset it's using. This is the closest mounting position available to the gpus output. Not no 10 in of wire before it hits the convert it hits it right away coming off the mb.. I highly recommend this install. Very clean finished great picture and audio. The boys who made this board originally did an excellent job. Attack store a few pictures of how to internally install Wii to HDMI on the original Xbox using these installation boards very simple to do and great video output even with the new chipset.
  6. This chip was sold as soon as I posted in the Facebook group. Sorry no longer available
  7. Yes they do make a remake. I received a couple in. Did not hook up yet but apparently it works with blue chips as well as ice chips. If you have those chips I even uploaded different skins for the chip operating system if you click on my name and look you will see that I found skins and uploaded you should download them. They're very hard to find apparently. You might enjoy having them
  8. I was actually looking this up. One of the chips on board is made for white and black balance. They showed some sort of comparison side by side picture. It makes the white colors whiter. Maybe this is what people were talking about it looks a little bit brighter compared to the pound wire. It's hard for me to tell the difference. Not only that it has some sort of Chip that make sure every pixel is the way it's supposed to look... and if it senses something is off it will duplicate the image . I think it was called Auto delicing .. I think maybe this is why in this picture of a side-by-side comparison. I took a screenshot to zoom in to see if I can tell the difference if you look on the Apple on the left hand side it's missing half of the stem if you look on the right hand side it has the full stem I think this is where the Auto delicing comes in... and I will say something else when I was capturing footage between the pound wire and the Wii to HDMI for original Xbox. One wire goes to the PC where it is capturing the footage. But what it shows on PC monitor is delayed so you need another monitor to hook the capture device up to I have a small 28 in television I use for it has HDMI hookups. When I was recording the side-by-side footage I noticed that my monitor the game monitor not the PC monitor that was getting the image and recording the image I'm talking about the one I'm looking at with no delay had a lot of green artifacting going on with the pound. Just thought I should add that in there. I don't know whether or not these specific chipsets Help on that end but I did not notice any on the Wii to HDMI.. attached is the image of the screenshot I took. There are a couple other spots that look better on the right side I just can't remember. Take a look for yourself what do you think?
  9. Yeah but not really. If you look at mine it's got a lot more grounding points. You might have came up with the idea and I give you credit for that good job I've only seen it done not only that but I've asked him to forms and I've asked in Facebook groups for help pretty much begging nobody came forward. By the way that's schematic by XP classics. Is wrong it's missing information. So don't go off that. it took me two days to figure out how to wire this from scratch as I had no help. Once I had great success James Reid offered to make a better diagram I had to hand draw everything and send it his way. Some of those images you posted are decent but there is one in particular XP classic that is misleading. That being said you should use the schematic I came up with yes sure it might use a few more grounding points. But that's just a guarantee you won't have any interference especially when it comes to 1.4. For example my build has five grounding points. In any event I did not see your post. And when I ask for help nobody helped me so this is my revision of this mod. If you got it to work some other way that's great but it doesn't really help nobody else out if there's no schematics to go off of and if the information is not shared I actually track this back to a member of XP classic who came up with this mod. And they're charging the equivalent of $40 us for one of these. I messaged the guy directly the first person who ever came up with this idea because I wanted to give him credit but his answer was disgusting. I showed him that XP classic image. He told me I have better images but I will not release them. That is terrible that does not help anyone in the community not only that but the same gentleman is charging $$$$ 4 links for coin-ops packs Etc. To his own people just because they do not know how to write and read in English. I will not credit that person. If you got this to work I'm very happy for you. But this does not help anybody at all without a proper schematic with the help of James Reid I was able to supply the community with it that's why I made this post I want to be able to have a good schematic available online for anyone who wants to do this mod. Anyway that being said thank you for your contributions. But if you don't have your own note still and you just have memorized keep a copy of this schematic it is Bulletproof. Thanks again Frank
  10. Took me 2 days to get all the wiring right. for the wii2hdmi for og xbox modd ... using a wii2hdmi device ordered off eBay you can also find an Alibaba and other places like this. Very inexpensive around 5 Canadian dollars. You're also going to need some sort of a donor Xbox RCA wires or component wires in order to pull this off. There is 11 connections total five of which are ground I do not suggest not adding all the ground cuz could cause interference. Had pretty good luck I made to both of them are crystal clear with no interference. I tested on version 1.0 as well as version 1.4 turned out very good. I tried to look up and down online for some sort of schematic nothing appeared. There was one picture that was in Spanish but it was misleading I tried to look into it to find out who the original inventor was found the person at XB Classics a Brazilian site. After conversating with him he told me that he had better pictures but he would not share. Then I noticed a site that they has linked where they were selling these to the equivalent of 40 US dollars a piece so that is the reason the images that they uploaded are just there to confuse people. So that they cannot make it. Does not include audio left or right. And apparently La stands for 5 V? Don't ask me but that's what the guy told me makes no sense at all. I spent two days getting the wiring correct. I documented everything and put it on a YouTube video (link2come) was trying to figure out the best way to make this readily available for everybody in the world any Xbox Enthusiast should have a low cost HDMI adapter solution available to them this is where these schematics come in. Again I didn't notice any interference at all. Just a little bit in the Bios when only running 480 but there's not much you can do unless you re Flash the BIOS to force. I've noticed people in the group posting pictures not even having soldering skills and getting very good results from this method. In theory you can use this exact same adapter in order to have an internal HDMI solution. These images are water marked because these are going to be the only good images that are online and I seen the way XB classic does their water mark and it really bugs me that they did that so I wanted to make sure that everyone knows where it came from. That being said I'm Mister James Reid really helped me out with this he volunteered his services in order to take my hard copy drawings that were on paper and make it look something presentable. Which he did and he did a great job thank you very much James I did in fact alter the images to have the watermark across them. Sorry about that but I figured since I put in the work I deserve to have my name on it. If you have any questions please do not hesitate I do not check this site every day but I do come in from time to time. Thanks again and I hope people online can use this receive money from the big corporations like pounds and hyperkin charging ridiculous amounts of money for something so cheap... I've also got a lot of questions recently about people asking if this is any better than component. It uses the component wires in order to transfer the signal into HDMI. I'm not too technical with that end but when looking up the chip number on the actual board for the Wii to HDMI adapter I did notice in there schematics and their breakdown for the actual board they did mention that the video board that does the decoding actually does video on hand splint what kind of video enhancement I have no idea. But it should be an enhancement over component if they are speaking the truth. Anyway gentleman without further delay here are the schematics. I hope this hope somebody somewhere. Thank you very much Frank
