OK...  so for the OG Xbox, you feel that the MS9282 is better all around?  (i.e. better at lower resolutions, maybe?)

I do.   Most tv's now a day do a better job at the upscaling than a converter chip also.

@Kekule I know your not a big fan of upscalers but I am pretty curious about this thing. They say it's the box the other WII2HDMI are based on. I'm gonna do some more research:

i dont doubt it, they are all based on the same reference design from MacroSilicon.  and yes, I prefer my converter box to as little modification as possible, my TV is far better quality than most of them.

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.

What audio type are you using right now? I have been searching for a pretty long time for the right converter box. And now I have one that turns Component and Optical together to create HDMI with dolby. I'm curious if you also have dolby right now? Or does it internally change nothing to the mod itself?

I  just read the main page again but I don't think there is any point on the Wii2HMDI board that deals with optical. Isn't it possible to take that one of the motherboard?

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.

There are many different PCBs inside even if the exterior case looks the same.  Try popping a 480p Xbox game DVD into the DVD drive and reboot your Xbox.  If it works then the type of PCB that you have might not support certain video resolutions.

I also very strongly recommend whatever adapter you go with. To test it out on a Wii system beforehand. This can distinguish any defective products before you even start to work. There are different boards available with different layouts. You need to keep that in mind as well if it's not this exact board then the wiring schematic may not work

Now when you were wiring this did you keep in mind that this is Layed out with the dport solder side facing you? This could be overlooked. Also are you in pal region?

Yes made sure was following the layout in the 1st pic so dport solder side facing me..   Yh I'm in the PAL region have tried switching Xbox to ntsc aswell with hexen but same thing.

Seems like any problems that arise with this mod always comes from pal region you're the second person and this is in the pal regen. For some reason it doesn't like pal region. That being said pal is incapable of providing picture in 720p and 1080i .. I would suggest trying another television something that switches between pal and ntsc. You already said that you switched your console to ntsc. I don't know how well your television is taking it. But on this side of the world I assure you this mod works every time. I have nothing but success stories to talk about on this side of the world for some reason pal region is a little different.. if you're certain that your connections are proper. And you didn't miss any grounding points or didn't try to cut any corners. I recommend running your Xbox in ntsc mode. And trying on a different TV something more modern that can produce ntsc signal. Other than that I can't shed too much more light on this topic. Seems like any problems that ever arose from this mod came from pal region. I would try a different HDMI cable and tv.. hopefully something very modern

Good news guys

Was messing around with the connector when testing and got colour to appear briefly.

Inspected the connector again and it seems pin 1 was pushed down slightly, after raising it back up inline with rest I now have a nice colour image :)

 

thanks for all the help

      Hello everybody,
      I've been reading the forums for a few months, and I have to request something that is very dearly to me. It comes after the small intro.

      I have a previously modded Xbox OG, but I failed I reckon and it only boots the official bios now. I want to thank my dad for showing what gaming was back in 1994, and purchasing me a Dreamcast in 1999 and the Xbox in 2002...Nostalgia Highway to Memories Camp...😔✌🏽️

      So : The Year is 2020, and now I want to have a definitive ultimate version/edition of my Xbox that've kept for almost two decades.

      I've seen CPU, RAM, DVD reader and belt, capacitors, IDE/SATA cables replacements or upgrades, the HDMI mod and the GPU overclock. This all made me have fantaisies, I am too little knowledgeable about the electronics modding and skills.
      Basically I am searching for someone that can mod my Xbox and upgrade the specs. I am living in the area next to the Border between Switzerland and southern Germany.
      I don't know what are the exact component bust my requirements is to be able to at least play games with patched .xbe for the DLCs(that I purchased back then, looking at PGR2 and SWBF2)(I still have all physical games with me) and 720p patches as well as some N64, PS1 and Dreamcast emulators with HDMI output (I have the Scart Advanced Pack & HD AV Pack imported from US). I have two Xboxes. One is a v1.1, the other 1.6. Both have a 500Gb HDD. Everything can be cleared and wiped. Softmod must be anyway.

      The purpose for my Xbox is to be the Leisure Room console with couch/cabinet setup. It hasn't a commercial purpose.
      A typical scenario is : I want to show my friends old gems and just play from time to time with my brother who shared the experiences with me (I am the elder brother).
      So it has a purely gaming use of OG Xbox games and Retroarch emulator. As well as maintaining tools for archiving and updating

      I am confused, it's true, about modchips having only used softmods. A Modchip is a hardmod right ? Which Modchip is the most developer or last updated?
      I am thinking about the Xecuter 3 and X-Chip ones after looking through the 4th Gen comparison chart in the forum here.

      I always wondered why people would use many launchers and different OS, with different features like remote media or other networking services?
      I don't want to have too much things. It must be pretty straight forward for gaming : clear, quick and clean.
      I hope N64 Freak (even when he/you said a month ago you're not actively offering them for long anymore), Neighbor or some one knowledgeable reads this 😍

      Thank you for reading, and I'm glad to have happy times in the forums !

      Hi, my precious modded Xbox is a UK device and I have been working on the basis that the PSU is 220v only and will need to be replaced with a 110v supply. Can anyone confirm that this is the case - if it can handle multi voltage then that would be a great surprise. Obviously if I need to replace the PSU thats fine - would anyone have any tips / pitfalls I need to be aware of??
      Cheers
