  1. Sorry for the terrible quality picture. So, I'm using a Hyperkin HDMI-AV cable, and the dash is scaling the centerpiece very oddly. It's still working properly, but icons for apps and games seem to face to the right significantly. Is it because the aspect ratio has changed to 16:9 and 1080i support is on? It's not causing any issues with usability, but it looks really weird. Anyone else have the same issues?
  2. So finally got the case for the HDMI cable finished! The cable itself does work good and is finally in the last steps off testing. Decided to add the OGX logo to the case to make it look even better. So a little more detail about the hardware now! It is basically a Component to HDMI converter that does reencode the Component signal to a HDMI signal. The Xbox will recognize the cable as a component cable and it is plug and play without the need for an extra psu or anything. The HDMI signal does provide stereo audio and there is an optical out on the pcb for digital audio. Can print the case in different colors once the cables are for sale! Before a lot off people ask about them now they will be for sale in around 4 weeks and i will post the add here in the Forums. Will offer them as finished cable and as an internal install kit without the cable and avip plug for those who want to do an internal install on there Xbox. So keep checking the forums not just facebook And without further talking that's how the final product looks like:
  3. 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?
  4. Hey do you guys recommend the hdmi pound cable if not what are some good ones
  5. so I'm working on an internal hdmi mod among other things..... would you also want an optical and or rca output for the spdif, our just spdif over the hdmi? this is currently an external design, but I'm making it an internal currently. https://imgur.com/iJKaQjN also have another project some of you may recognize... https://imgur.com/a/fCjAnTp
  6. 1. Xbox motherboard 1ghz CPU and 128mb Ram: 100€ 2. Rev1.6 Motherboard- Aladdin Chip and internal HDMI mod with 5.1 digital Audio support: 90€ Here's a youtube review comparing my HDMI mod to a component cable and a normal AV-cable. It's in german but the video quality comparison should be clear enough. 3. Xbox Alpha Development kit soundcard: 35€
  7. Since there is no clear tutorial on the web I will submit it! I have made a few plugs from wii2hdmi converters. These converters are plenty and cheap, they do not upscale, unless you buy more expensive wii2hdmi plugs with a hole on the top. To follow this tutorial you need a few items: (aftermarket preferred) av cable Wii2hdmi converter Thin wire A few tools: Soldering iron, preferred regulated station. Sharp knife Cutting tools for metal (angle grinder is fast) Electrical wire stripper/cutter A pocket knife or small screwdriver. I used a chinese av cable, the long and short soldering connections are opposite to original! Just follow the pictures and you will be on hdmi in no-time. Reminder, the wii2hdmi boards are very sensitive to static electricity, i have busted a few. Cut of the connector. Cut in the sides to release easily. remove plug and open up. cut the metal on the black line. bend the pins open as far as possible, this will sturdy up the connector. remove the hot glue, on original cables it is a piece of tape. desolder the wires. place the mode selector connections, use the shortes wire you can, unshielded is o.k.open up the wii2hdmi and snap off the connector. clean all the contacts make the first connection, it will sturdy fings up, the lid has the exact size you need. with 2 cables installed, you do not need the spacer anymore. make sure all the cables are as short as possible and don't short out each other! add a piece of insulation tape at both sides. It is wise to test it at this stage, later on it will be a pain in the a**. measure and cut the hole for the metal, it should slide in without to much hussle. cut the top metal piece at the black line. slide the metal piece in as far as possible. This will hold the internals in place! solder it at the top and the sides. Your plug will not fall apart if you remove it from the xbox this way. insert the completed converter, push it through as far as possible and solder a wire to the top and bottom, against the plastic, this will keep the internals in place and removes stress on the converter. time to test! 720x480@60i, the boot screen, some tv units have problems displaying this throigh hdmi! we have reached 1920x1080@60i, maximum resolution of xbmc, although I advice to use 720. If you miss the options for higher resolution, make sure the system is set to NTSC, in pal it is unavailable. Use enigma video switcher. I will start to sell these adapters in a short while for €45,- due to the work it takes. I have given all the connection types another color and the pin numbers are not the official ones! Any questions? Be free to ask.
  8. Dear All, As most users on this forum have faced the same issue, which solution is best for better video quality, I own a so called "cheap" component cable, which in fact is not so bad as I imaged, besides having a slight ghosting on the image, when I remove the audio (left/right) rca, the issue is more or less gone, but on the flip coin no sound. So I figured out what could be to fix the issue of HD picture. 1) I thought of getting a converter from component to hdmi, namely "Portta PETRHS YPbPr Component Video and L/R RCA Audio to HDMI Converter Upscaler 720p 1080p" which converters the signals from the component cable to straight HDMI signals and hopefully the ghosting effect could be gone with this solution, given the treatment the box does to the conversion and have an upscale image. 2) Or ditching the components cable and buy this HDMI Link cable, on amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Original-MASCARRY-No-Mods-Required-Converter/dp/B07JHJB1Y8?SubscriptionId=AKIAJKVC5TM5C4Y6TOSQ&tag=haggle-web-en-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B07JHJB1Y8 My system is a 1.4 revision of the Xbox, read horrible stuffs about xbox 1.4 and hdmi converters like Pound, but this one is of a different brand. What are you thoughts on this?
  9. Got 3 Diy install sets for the internal HDMI mod for sale right now. Keep in mind you should be handy with a soldering iron. It's not a lot more complicated than a chip install but if you already have trouble with an xbox chip leave this mod alone for now. Price for each set is: 70€ +shipping costs. Drop me a PM if you want one!
  10. 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.
  11. Hey guys, So @N64 freak posted his awesome PCB HDMI converter in another thread. With luck he will be able to make these available for everyone. Until such a time I am annoyed with having my DIY Component cable going into a cheap amazon converter. I figure it would be easy enough to do the "dirty version" where you gut a converter down to the PCB and solder wires to the mobo. In researching the pinout of the AV connector on the mobo i found a great post from a gent named William Quade. He did a nice write up on his blog about doing it and I thought i'd share it here in case someone else is interested. https://quade.co/2017/original-xbox-hdmi/ Note: He admits his hole for the HDMI port is terrible and I recommend anyone who's doing this mod do it properly with a panel mount HDMI or at the very least, cut the hole with a dremel. His looks like a tiny bear was trying to get into his xbox but the point of the blog post was to show where you need to solder which is the important part.
  12. any one has this device and tested it with the og xbox
