  1. Yes, those ain't no 3$ things,, but I get good enough picture when using my external wii2hdmi in only 720 to keep me really satisfied for that price ) compared to what I have been used to since xbox was released ) Rallisport Challenge, Destroy all Humans, Blood Rayne 2 and Soul Calibur 2 and many more is line free and almost Xbox 360 B,C identical looking,, so I really enjoy playing old classics on it now.
  2. I've encountered at least 5 different ones to date, and one with a chip FS9293 or if it says FS9299, hard to see on the small chip, but that one really sucks. It deliver perfect, almost linefree picture, but it is so dark that you can hardly tell what you are doing in games if there is much black colors or a lot of shadows, even XBMC is to dark with this version. Found this PCB with this chip in a Wii2HDMI that has one short-side flat and one short-side rounded,, so stay away from that model. Only way I got a standard bright picture was when I turned of 480/720 and 1080 in NTSC mode,, but then the picture quality was worse than standard Composit signal. This Wii2HDMI is even as bad on my Nintendo Wii.
  3. I tried using caps, different variants and values, did not get any better results. It was my external that is better than the internal I tried on a 1.6 One thing I have noticed is that locking the xbox to only 720p makes the picture very watching friedly. I triedplaying with 480 480/720 720 720/1080 and all 480/720/1080. But with only 720 I now have really acceptable picture with almost no visible linings, in both XBMC and games,, regardless of what game. I tried toroidal rings like Wouter A tried feroid,, but my results were just that the more I wrapped the ring,, the more stretchblurry my picture went, until it started to shift the colors to become purple and green x) while Wouter got better picture the more he wrapped his.
  4. Yepp, I have looked over that some, and such a NiMh would not be the best idea for a "plug and play". I have not measured the mA consumption of the xbox for keeping the date, but read that some say that to put a 2032 holder socket in it's place with a diod works, and some say it is not like the PC bios where it can last years and years but drains very quickly. I wonder where the Graphene scene are now, if it is comming small Graphene supercaps in the suiting size and 2.5v region in the nearby future. That would be a new addition for a clock cap replacement.
  5. I think i seen some parts of that video before, but must have missed that bit when he changes the clock cap. Looks like it's one of those NiMh 2.4v batteries. I've lookes around but never found any reviews how long they keep charged enough to keep the time etc, but can be worth a try and measure the results. Especially since some few 1.6 consoles seems to have begun to get leaking caps to, and they won't work without one.
  6. I have the Controller Tester Xbe somewhere in my collection, I just don't know where at the moment, but I can look it up. I never used that Hexen disc, so I can't tell what it installs, but I usually only install DVD2Xbox and Xb partitioner, that's the only apps I use.
  7. Function before form,, as long as it is internal and never seen Basically it is the same as a switch, either way you have to reach to the backside, flick a switch or unplugg the AV connector. Could mount a small DPST under the front of the xbox, but as I seldom use the AV cable since I managed to get my adapter vertical line free, an internal transistor is really interesting for me.
  8. Aah, that's a really good idea, like a automatic switching relay, only in transistor size Components and electronic theory is not my best area either, as software and such. I know more about hardware, soldering etc, but when it comes down to the level of components, I am mostly lost, except resistors and LED's,, so a transistor, never crossed my mind
  9. Things like these are latin for me when it comes to hardware I usually know what I am doing, but these software things,, I am totally lost. I just took some Ram's from a precious V1.1 i messed up many many years ago trying to do a Ram upgrade on, when I did not have any worthy equipment or knowledge, only a flattip 60w soldering iron, now I just used the BGA machine and they came of nice and tidy amd moved them to the 1.4.
  10. Well, I downloaded the files from Thingy, but have no idea what so ever how they work but I'll keep them incase I come across someone who have a 3D printer and knows about these things I made my first monstrous 128MB beast yesterday, and a built in HDMI adapter would be perfect in that console for a emu/arcade station.
  11. That's an alternative, but if I still have the AV port, I would like to be able to use composit too, just to be able to try it in between to see what difference it makes with HDMI I don't know anyone with a 3D printer, but maybe worth to save the giles for it incase I someday come across someone with a printer, I don't know how it even works, if you have to open the file and print it from a PC or if you can stick it to a USB or SD card and pop it right in the printer and go from there. I don't know how to delete picture either, it seems I have used mu quote too with the pictures of my games with diagonal lines in them and on a couple of Wii2HDMI pcb's
  12. Never thought of what they are actually I've seen some of those 3D printed Ideas, but I got the idea that it would be quicker to bend a pice of metall to a bracket and solder it to the HDMI housing and fasten it with the AV port screws, since I don't have neither a 3D printer or program to make such things How are you switching Mode when having both tye AV port and Wii2HDMI adapter? Using a DPST switch to bridge the Component output points?
  13. To be honest, I soldered mine towards the Conexant chip on the pictures a couple of post back,, Xcalibur maybe it is called in my 1.6, I don't remember the name,, maybe that was the problem with my installation I thought it could have something to do with internal fields interference. I thought it maybe had better/cleaner signal before the resistors and that the Wii2HDMI internal components took care of the more pure component signals.
  14. Woops, sorry, I seem to have double quoted
  15. Yes, I can only tell from the AV pinout schematic, but I jumped a pin when counting, so I missed one. Jaywalk101, search for "Wii2HDMI Retro Pro Frank" and you should find a very clear schematics over how to connect you Mode switches, that's how I found where I missed a pin, I don't know how they are on the MB itself, but you could always solder jumpers underneat the AV port pins. I have a 1.6 I made an internal Wii2HDMI mod in, but it still hade some wave lines, maybe to much interference inside for it to work flawlessly, so I removed all cables and the HDMI board and resoldered the origiginal AV port back,, going to make a AV plug-HDMI of that board insted, seems to work much better.
