Took me 2 days to get all the wiring right. for the wii2hdmi for og xbox modd ... using a wii2hdmi device ordered off eBay you can also find an Alibaba and other places like this. Very inexpensive aro

Tried this mod today.  It's pretty good. It will need an end cap though.  Luckily some brilliant person made up this 3D printable one (attached).    xbox2hdmi 3D printer file.stl

I was actually looking this up. One of the chips on board is made for white and black balance. They showed some sort of comparison side by side picture. It makes the white colors whiter. Maybe this is

I just opened my ancient wii2hdmi adapter and mine is equipped with a ms9282 chip. Would I be able to connect digital audio instead of stereo so that the digital signal goes to the hdmi connector?

I do believe that the 9282 is one of the better chips and that it can handle the SPDIF signal...

yes, the MS9282 is the best chip in the wii2hdmi boards, but the wii2hdmi board versions do not have an audio encoder to handle S/PDIF

You can attach digital audio to anything. It comes off a PIN number 3 on the Deport if you're looking at the solder side. You can bypass that board completely

Would you happen to know which HDMI pin would be the one to attach it to? I researched the hdmi layout but see no audio references

it doesnt work like that.  the audio data has to be inserted into the HDMI data stream... Frank was talking about taking the digital audio from the xbox connector and using a TOSLINK or coax connector... these can then be fed to your receiver to get the audio

That's too bad, I was considering that as well but was hoping for something better. Thanks for the clarification!

I am hoping to get an internal mod from N64 Freak.  If that fails, I am going this route.  Thanx for the post!

You'll be extremely happy with N64 Freak's internal mod.  On the contrary, this wii2hdmi mod costs about $75 US less and it produces some pretty amazing results.  It is inferior to N64 Freak's mod but for the price you can't beat it.  I own both and I'm happy with both.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions.  That is exactly what I expected.

Can someone share the equivalent schematics for this mod internally?  I desoldered my AV port and the guides out there don't match up with the pins for the connector. I followed a guide that bridged pins 11 and 13 to ground but I have a ton of interference. Think I need more grounding points.  Any help appreciated!!  Thanks!

Okay first off you went and bought this adapter off eBay God only knows what the eBay seller did. How he wired it up..and if he followed schematics exact or not... my advice to you is to contact the eBay seller. Not to come on this form and write down that you're having problems with one that you bought off eBay that has no connection to anybody in this form.. second your TV looks pretty old there. Looks like the picture could be washed out from the beginning I would try a different TV. If that doesn't work contact your eBay seller and tell him you would like an exchange or a refund. Posting it here is going to do nothing because you cannot repair anyting on that unit if you do you may not get your money back from eBay

In order for that to be done somebody would have to create that. Someone would have to do extensive testing and spend hours to get that schematic for you. I don't know of any floating around for internal wiring

Hello, thanks for answer. Well, I tried on four different WII2HDMI adapters and problem persists on all of them. I order two white, and two black. Two pairs are from eBay, and other two are from AliExpress. Maybe all of them are in some way defected, but I don't think so. I also tried on my BenQ 27" FullHD monitor and problem is same so I definitly know that TV isn't problem. Boards inside WII2HDMI are little differnt from board shown in your YT tutorial, but PINOUT is same. Do you maybe have a link from where you bought yours WII2HDMI?

ypbpr is 16-235, so you have to change your tv's hdmi reference level to low/limited range.

your monitor may only work in 0-255 rgb range.

16-235 signal to 0-255 monitor, causes gray black levels, in general gray, washed out image.

0-255 signal to 16-235 tv/monitor, causes crushed blacks (missing details), darker image.

not sure if this is the problem for you.

I just finished doing one of these, although wiring up the xbox video connector was a major pain for me the end result was well worth it.

In my case this actually looks better then the "Pound" cable I bought.

Good to hear you have it working .

That not hard for it to look better than the pound cable .  My pound cable is in the junk box where it belongs.

Hi So I had a chinese knock off cable thinking i would cut one of them up.  

It was full of glue :(  I tried to clean it off and bent one of the pins.

Beware of knock off cables from china!

1.jpg

original cables are with glue too more like hot glue stuff, some are with glue, some are with tape. Not sure why it is, probably for accidental shorting to connectors shielding. You can unbent the pin, but do it SLOW!, or you can swap it with unused pin. Everything is OK.

      Listing of materials tested:
       
      OSSC Chimeric HDMI Konig component RGB AV optical Composite original  Pound (2020) Mcable gaming Mclassic Monster component x400      Monster component x200    variety of wall chargers and HDMI cables
      All the combinations and configurations were tested.
      Tested on four TV and two Xbox : V 1.6 no modded,  V1.0 XBMC  ( no one did consequential differences ) 
       
      Winner!
      xbox+chimeric+Mclassic mode green (alimented wall) +Mcable gaming (alimented wall)+TV.
       

       
      Explanation
       
      At the begening, the monster component x400 seem perfect.    https://postimg.cc/d7rGj7PT       
      It was better than konig component. 
      The konig get a good quantity of details but not like the monster x400 .
      And his picture is  faded. There is a significant loss of signal.
      The monster x200  was like composite because the three plugs are video x1 and stereo x2. Not three RGB + optical audio like I had thinking.
      Next, I tested all options of the OSSC expecting upgrade my video with a HDMI solution.
      The picture was worst than the monster. 
      The OSSC loose always a part of the signal, event it was alimented, and it work not compatible for this console.
      The pound (with power usb port) was very poor. Yes, it's very better than composite but:  Green filter. Not very clear etc. 
       

      But it's wasn't a problem because I had bet all on the Chimeric.

      Finaly, I recived the chimeric, and horror, the monster component smashes far more once again ,                                                                                                                                                with is colors very realistic and the picture very compatible with the signal source.                                                                                                                                                                           I pluged the mcable and the mclassic, but this changed nothing.   https://postimg.cc/VJKNfHvJ
       
      I thinking pass all my life with monster x400.

      After to have expected an issus of fabrication, I Shipped an message to Chimeric system.                                                                                                                                                         Before to receive a response, I had set up the stuff again, and this is it.  It work fine.                                                                                                                                                            Mclassic was alimented by the pc port, but we need to put it in the wall.                                                                                                                                                                                        We need to find the perfect TV setting too, because the signal is different for PC, RGB etc.                                                                                                                                                           So the best mode need to be (neutral, desatured, wider spectrum, all spectrum of light and colors).
      Now it is better than the monster component.  
      And better than the chimeric only. The stuff do all that it must to do.
      But, after that, I upgraded the output video another time with an astuce.
      I bought some different wall charger more powerful and the video become consequently much higher.
      Now with the good wall charger,
      It's a masterpiece.


      How setting this Winning combination

      Xbox dashboard- Audio : put dolby souround + DTS ( not Dolby digital)
      Mclassic: Mode green( or off). Alimented by wall charger  5v- 1.8 A.  Little bit hight or less.  
      Mcable Gaming: Wall charger 5v -2.4 A
      Tv(Flat): Here my setting like exemple : Cinema , retro éclairage 100, contraste 100,  brillance 63, couleur 50, nuance  +10,                                                                                                               netteté 100, image IA=EF, C.A.T.S=HF , reduc=HF, reduc MPEG=HF, niveau noir=clair.   
      In full screen, on tv 1080p or +, and with this stuff, If the picture is bigger than the window,                                                                                                                                                        to reduce It will do appear more elements in the window but not downgrade the details and the beauty.                                                                                                                               That will generate the details in less pixels, but in number sufficient.
      Other point: More definition your monitor have, more sharp and natural are the edges of all things.   ( Picture 1 to 3) https://postimg.cc/py77F2fG
      But a cheap tv Ultra HD will make the edge wavy.  ( Picture 3 and 4 are with the same poor ultra  HD TV.)
      Boost the signal with good wall charger upgrade the ambiance because the gamma have a better tonality.                                                                                                                              And do that upgrade really the textures too because halo 2 uses an optical illusion of 3d texture. So it's like if surfaces are more detailled.                                                                         And it's like if previous non-existent textures appeared ( metalic, glass).  
       
      Materials description:
      V1,6 Xbox: With hdmi solution, added vertical lines shadow (in the white sky) with halo 2 , but nothing else. It seem to have fast processing capacity. Fable is identical with the two consoles. 
      V1.0 Xbox (XBMC installed): Added horizontal artefacts with all the games and emulators. The picture was identical or less good.  ( But no lines shadow with halo 2)
      POUND (  Second place If with the same settings and stuff ).  Don't have DTS option. Clarity of detail less good than component and chimeric. Green filter.  https://postimg.cc/jWwJ303j
      CHIMERIC: Apply red filter on the Panasonic TC-L32U3 but the color was perfect with the second Pansonic. I corrected it with the settings. Alone, there is no big video differences with the Pound (considering the red filter on the other TV) but give more potential with the extra stuff. Chimeric can do DTS  audio option. 
      MONSTER COMPONENT x400 : Do the best picture and sound for easy and for the cost.  https://postimg.cc/d7rGj7PT   https://postimg.cc/McZcFHnk
      KONIG:  AV +optical + RGB + composite in one.   RGB exemple :  https://postimg.cc/FkFjfQY9    https://postimg.cc/xq7CN2Jt   
      V1.6 OSSC :  With all the settings, x1 and x2 scanline too, and two TV, the signal  loose a part of the intensity. The OSSC was alimented wall but only for the LCD screen I think, no to boost the signal. (Signal is affected in the normal processus of all adaptators).  The picture was pale and bleach. Next,  in X1, there was no difference compared  good component except the precedent problem. Problem 3 : In x2, the game is pixelised like 2D 1987 games. Problem 4: About audio; There is not input hdmi, it need an adaptator for the two cables stereo before plug in,  and there is no alimentation for boost the signal affected by this new stuff, and nothing for boost the signal if we connect the audio directly to the speaker ( using an adaptator too). And it's perhaps not 5.1 dolby sourround or DTS. 
      MCLASSIC : The leds set the format of the resolution, not the quantity of pixels. Mode blue it's for an old square tv and mode green for a larger format. The mode off is like the green. I did not see the visual difference, the pixels are exactly  the same at the same place with the same flashing artefacts . But it's perhaps for another king of  tv or another king of console. After that, it need a good wall charger.  Yes, the pixel shapes are attenuated.
      MCABLE GAMING. The not exspensive and not specialised cable '' Premium hight speed /HEC HDMI '' do the stone and building more realistic than the Mcable because it don't blur a part of the texture. At the same time, the Mcable gaming do the best shiny and polished textures, electric arc, water. It reduce the pixelisation of the game . But if we like the realistic stone and dislike to see psycadelic effects when some thin lines are near each others,  it is an option. Finaly, the Mcable is better than all these kinds of cables because it have the capacity to involve the totality of the signal  and upgrade all lights ambiance, textures, metalic or shiny effects. And is hight quality give the better definition. With a computer, the Mcable show more details than the HEC HDMI, but the xbox have not enough definition for did a difference at this point.  
      TV : The winner was : Panasonic TC-L32U3.  Second place : Panasonic TC-L32X5. The very poor others are : LG 47LN5750, SAMSUNG UN50TU7000F.
       

      Finaly, the https://makemhz.com/  is perhaps better than the chimeric so I will change the chimeric for it and keep all the settings and materials in this set up.

      Started my Xbox for the firat time in ages. i heard bubblig noise and a strong small hit me. So i pulled out the power cord and opend the Xbox. Could only find some liqud that Smelled stron on the harddrive pleas help.
    • By TWesten
      Can I ask the community for some help please: I’m trying to make a back-up of my WD Blue 1TB hard drive from my Xbox and can’t seem to get the duplicated drive to boot.
      My Xbox is modded with an Xecuter X3 chip and that is working fine; I have the X3 panel on the front which is lighting up blue and booting ok with my original drive – and it is booting to the X3 bios on my duplicate one.
      I’ve duplicated my original drive using HDD Raw Copy 1.10 (through two separate USB docking stations). Obviously I received read errors throughout the process; but it has reached 100% and finished.
      However, when I plugged in the back-up drive and booted up the Xbox, I got error code 16.
      When I switched banks and booted to the X3 bios it updated some settings; but when I boot to the bios bank that should be loading my XBMC Media Centre dashboard, I get error code 13.
      Basically my question is: am I missing something/doing something wrong?
      I wonder if I still need to “tell” the bios that this is a different drive somehow?
      Any advice gratefully received thanks.
