Fastest Cable for X-Link Kai/Ftp?

Recommended Posts

Is there any benefit to using a Cat6e crossover cable vs. any other type of crossover cable? I expect that the limiting factor would be the NIC in the Xbox, but I was curious to know if there are any benefits to using newer cabling standards for X-Link and FTP.

No, the Xbox only supports 10 or 100 Mbit per second data transfers  - Cat5 will do.

And most newer Ethernet ports support auto-MDI/MDI-x making a crossover cable unnecessary.  The port automagically connects the proper pairs of wires on each end to allow data to be transferred.  The Xbox does not do auto-MDI/MDI-X but if your computer's Ethernet supports it, you are good to go using either a crossover or standard Ethernet cable.

      This might interest those that want to turn their retail/debug Xbox into a fully-functioning development kit without having to spend $500+ on one. It works on any version 1.0 through 1.2 motherboard and can be great for troubleshooting crashes of all kinds without requiring the use of XDK software.
      I'm selling pre-made units for $30 plus shipping and would also like to get a feel for how many might want one in Europe so I can bulk-ship to a distributor to help save some on shipping costs as it's usually around $15 USD to ship from the US otherwise.
      Everything is fully open-source if you'd like to build/sell them yourself as well. Any questions, feel free to ask.

      So I will receive the components needed this week or the one after.
      This is a hardmodded xbox and I will try to swap a 130 Gb to a 2To one.
      Meanwhile I've been studying Chimp usage base on the latest video by Rocky5 but they are some things which are not clear to me.
      - Is it better to use cable select or slave for the new hdd ?
      - Cocky references a 4s period  to swap ide cable from dvd to new hdd, is it a real thing ?
      - Swapping cable before launching chimp right ?
      -  First option shown at 10'35 'Select from menu' shoudl be the first one FatX right ?
      - Clone from master to slave with a 2TB slave : I want to have F and G both of 950Go size approximatively so I should choose (around 12'19) option 1 C & E and then on the following screen choose 4 'F and G split space evenly' or 5 'Custom F size, G gets the rest'  ?
      - As i am on hardmod or tsop do i need to lock the slave after as show near 16'43 or is it not necessary ? I am asking because I seem to remember that in the options of my system the current HDD is shown as not locked

      I just got in a pound HDMI cable, and it runs most games just fine. I played Mech Assault and the screen is green. I tried switching back to the composite cables (RWY) and I still have a green screen on Mech Assault. I have went through with the pound and made sure all video settings matched on MS dash and UnleashX dash. Still have a green screen. The Mech Assault I was using was Platinums Hits. I loaded up the original non PH disc and I have no green screen. I would like to use my pound cable, but I have no clue how to get rid of the green screen if it comes on the original disc. Any ideas as to how to resolves the green background?
