  1. Cian, I made one of these cables and it works wonderful, that was about a year ago. But hear is the deal, I am getting a super nice TV, but it only has composite and S-video. Do you have any tips for me? Could I add Svideo to this cable somehow? Thank you Cian!!
  2. Nevermind. I guess I will try to give my PSU to the old geezer who works at electronics in my city. Maybe he can fix it. Cheers and thank you guys.
  3. So this is my struggle, I bought a japanese Sega Saturn model 2 more than a year ago. The power switch on it came completely destroyed. No refunds for me, because it wasn't the seller fault, etc. After 1 year of procrastinating, I tried to fix my Saturn. And believe it or not, I found the part I was looking for to fix the power switch!! I could not believe it, because I live in Chile, near the south pole, and an old tech geezer had the part I was looking for! I was so happy! I fixed it, so I thought, but I came down with the reality that now the PSU was completely dead. Aesthetically the PSU is perfect!! Nothing blown, nothing cracked, and nothing corroded. I already tried to fix it with the help of a great guy on Reddit, but to no avail. So here it is my idea, could anyone in this wonderful community spare with me a Saturn PSU? A PAL 220v PSU hopefully? I have in my possesion three 220v OG Xbox PSU's and one 110V American OG Xbox PSU. I could give any of those PSU's in return for a PAL Sega Saturn PSU, my PSU's are perfect and all working great! My best regards to everyone! You have always been great to me. Hector Hidalgo.
  4. Actually after months I have learned a lot of dashboard skins, do support covers on Unleashx. The problem is that the covers look very tiny and small. For covers, ask Anarchy42085 for a link to his media files and covers, I have the link, but I don't know if it's OK to share "his" work. Just ask him if you need those covers. Cheers.
  5. So you are saying ALL (Tuscany, Delta, etc) PSU's get warm while only plugged in to the wall? And with the Xbox turned off? It would be a bummer, because I bought this PSU in hopes of simply keeping it plugged in to the wall all the time without having to worry... and of course so I don't have to use a heavy and noisy power down converter (110v to 220v). And thank you Dave for your always amazing and constructive feedback Is always nice to read your experiences on the matter, is cool.
  6. Mostly the government stealing money from me, about 33 dollars exactly, and they marked my power supplies like they costed 100 dollars the package and from that completely fictitous number, they charged the TAX. By the way SS Dave, I am doing my replacement of the power supply right at this moment. Do you know wich PSU is better? I have 3 Delta PSU's and 1 Tuscany. The only difference is that the Tuscany seems to have more copper resistors and staff. Any idea of which is a better brand? Thank you Dave! You are super helpfull
  7. In my case I am just happy upgrading my USA PSU 110v to a 220v PAL PSU, that N64freak sent me. I needed this because in my country Chile we have 220v but NTSC format. Sadly customs charged me almost 35 dollars in TAX, because according to them, it was a console... I am still happy though, custom bastards won't take away my happyness (the problem was that N64freak sent me 4 PSU, that's the other reason I got taxed...) Cheers to all.
  8. I have a softmodded Xbox. Imposible to buy a chip in my country, well I guess there is 1 guy who sells the Aladdin chip, but why do that when you have a sofmodded able Xbox? (mine came softmodded, old softmod but good enough). No matter, everything has worked so far, so we can leave this thread as "solution found" etc. Thanks to all of you guys.
  9. I did just that! But then I learned that you only have to plug the "green" cable into the yellow composite input and you will see a black and white crappy image, but good enough to use chimp once... sadly I had already made the composite cable, almost destroying 1 of my fingers in the process
  10. Thanks Kaos, I've already done that, because without it, I wouldn't be able to see anything on the sides. But no matter what I do I just cannot make the fonts, letters, etc look bigger, they are too small, because this dashboard is probably meant for HD TV's. I guess I would have to try to mod XBMC4gamers myself... Thanks Kaos, for your time and your always nice feedback Hector.
  11. Thanks for that info Nikey! By the way, what dashboard do you recommend for using with a CRT (4:3 480i) I have used Xbmc4gamers and even though is nice, it is way too big for my screen, I cannot see what button does what etc. I am using UnleashX and sure, is good for my 4:3 TV, but Xbmc4gamers seems faster and it also has those nice covers. I wish I could find something like Xbmc4gamers but with bigger fonts! Bigger UI etc! But I cannot seem to find anything like that. A patched version of Xbmc4gamers with bigger fonts would be ideal for me, and for anyone using a CRT honestly. If you know any dashboard like this, please let me know! Thank you all again for your time, Hector.
  12. Mmm interesting, because my 5400 sata is about exactly 2 seconds slower than my old IDE drive. That woud mean that it doesn't make much of a difference. Maybe using the Startech Sata to IDE adaptor we could gain those 2 or 3 seconds back using the Sata 7200 drive, so it could be just as fast as an IDE 7200 drive. I only have the chinese sata to IDE adaptor, didn't know about the Startech when I bought mine. Thanks for the input SS Dave, this is all very interesting to me
  13. Nikeymikey, why you say it may not be worth it, in your country 3.5 7200rpm drives are also more expensive?(they are here for some reason). Because now that I have been searching in my city, is hard to get one in a good price. On the other hand 2.5 5400rpm are everywhere and cheap, I am using a 500gb from a PS4 Slim I "used to" have, HGST brand. Still, now that I have been using the Xbox for a while, everything seems a bit faster, also, with the Maxtor I would get 6 seconds between the black screen (after microsoft logo) and entering UnleashX, with the adaptor and sata drive it takes 8 seconds. That's about it, and having 10 big games installed. I think is good Cheers and man I am so happy, sadly I am starting with a bad flu right now, crap... hahahha uuuhhhh...
  14. You mean that using a 7200rpm and a 5400rpm is irrelevant due to the adapter making any HDD equally slower?
  15. Yes Kaos that is exactly what I got! But then I just said, screw this, and pressed A and it was like pressing enter, and entered Chimp. There was no where on the Internet that would tell you about this, I assumed Chimp simply wasn't compatible with my HDD and never thought to just press A, which I did eventually and it worked, not witstanding the errrors. Thanks Kaos
