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!

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.

      Hey folks
       
      It has been some time since I last posted. Hope you're doing well...
      What have you been up to? 😉
      I recently preordered the new version of the HDMI+ mod from MakeMhz which will arrive in july and i wanted to upgrade one of my my existing xboxes with it.
      Since I'm going to solder anyway and i got some RAM chips laying around, i thought about upgrading the RAM as well. In this regard, i was wondering if there is a BIOS that supports both (HDMI and 128MB RAM). Is the MakeMHz-BIOS taking advantage of 128MB RAM? Does somebody have some experince with this? 
       
      Thanks in advance for you thoughts!

      Hello everyone!
      Something very strange is happening with my softmodded xbox and I really can’t figure what’s wrong.
      I recently got a used xbox in very good condition, cleaned thoroughly, clock capacitor removed, top notch condition overall.
      So, I installed a new 1TB WD hard drive (WD10EZEX) and everything went great.
      In the Hexen options I selected to make a big partition so I can put the games in there.
      So, long story short, I transferred a whole lot of games with FTP using a crossover cable, directly from my laptop to my xbox, since the Ethernet method gave me low transfer speeds.
      Everything was going great and at last I had a big library to choose and enjoy, even downloaded a big coinops pack! So, as you can tell I spent countless hours just transferring every day.
      I played daily for 1-2 weeks with no problems at all.
      Then one day, all of a sudden I saw that coinops was missing and some of the games also.
      To my surprise, they were magically deleted, and it messed up the games folders, for example there was just an empty folder with the game name and nothing in it.
      I couldn’t find any info online, so I decided to start transferring again and see if it will do this again.
      And at that point I started getting errors in Filezilla, half of the files were transferring and the others failed. The ones that fail are always the same files, everytime in every game.
      I even tried a different cable, but the result was the same.
      Another weird thing is that the later partitions (X,Y,Z) sometimes have weird files in them and other times are empty, for example at one point there was a 500MB file called gta3image.iso or something like that, and at other times, just random assorted files that it creates and deletes by itself. I never mess with those partitions, it does this by itself. The only partition I access is F which is the main ~900GB partition with my “Games” folder.
      So now, I’m with a half-broken xbox and can’t really tell what’s wrong.
      Any advice or info what may be wrong (maybe something similar has happened to someone here), will be greatly appreciated!
      I’m attaching a Filezilla report with a game I just tried transferring (25 to Life is the game), maybe someone could figure something from the report:

      Please help me out fellas!
      Thanks!

      Hey there everyone, just purchased an unmodded Xbox and I'm having issues. I tested with multiple games and for some reason, the console cannot read discs. It can boot to the menu and works perfectly fine in that regard, but when I put a disc in the green lift around the eject key will blink for a few times and then... Nothing. I don't get a read error or damaged disc message, it simply does nothing. No error code, everything else seems to work perfectly fine, but it simply won't read discs. It is a samsung disc drive and I opened it and did a bit of cleaning, checked the wires for seemingly any damage or missing pins which there weren't any and nothing has changed. The disc drive is clean, the connections are fine, and the discs are all basically flawless. Any ideas or advice?
