XBox HD AV Pack - Pricing Error?

Recommended Posts

I very recently put my name on a waiting list for this Xbox HD AV pack since it was decently priced. I never thought it would actually come in but it did this morning and I was able to get it. It clearly shows the OG Xbox HD AV pack and says so in the title but the Platform says Xbox 360. I wonder if this is a mistake and Lukie games thinks this is a 360 item or if Lukie games doesn't know what this HD Pack is really worth. In any case, if they send the wrong item, I'll just return it for a refund. It's cheap enough to take a chance on. I'll let you all know if I receive the correct item. In the meantime, you may want to put your name of the waiting list in case another comes along.

I don't want to upset you. do you think this lot is still relevant? look at the placement date.

The High Definition Audio Video pack is still very relevant. It's one of the best ways to get the best image from the original Xbox. A lot of folks are paying between $40-$80 dollars (US) plus shipping on eBay for this.

Looks like a damn good price for the av pack! Have you tried Please login or register to see this link. before?

I’ved used one for a long time and the picture seems pretty good! Would like to see if there’s a noticeable difference there.

you misunderstood me. term of placement of this lot. it is no longer relevant, it is not on sale from the seller. the last review for this product was written 11 years ago, in 2008

They shipped ‘em something!

But OP makes a good point. People who don’t really know what they’re looking at often conflate OGX and 360 A/V connectors. I found a listing at vintage stock for ONE original Xbox cable, but when a I went in to grab it they “didn’t have it in inventory” because someone marked it as a 360 cable.

look closely at this Converter) good quality output pictures on the TV

I thought about getting an HDMI cable but the technology still has a ways to go in terms of compatibility with all games and screens. The HDMI cable also looks a bit darker and the colors a bit less saturated than a component cable. The review is from 1 year ago (May 13th, 2018) not 11 years ago and the buyer was happy he got the real Microsoft OG Xbox component cable for this price. Mine just shipped an hour ago as they only had this 1 in stock.

I just picked up one of these on eBay here in Oz for $20 AUD.

Yet to test it but hopefully it is good, I'll let you know.

I haven't used one but I'd really like to do a comparison between the two cables. From the so-called "Experts" on You-tube, the cheap component cables are hit and miss. I think it has to do with the shielding covering the cables. I suppose, if the shielding can be improved with duct, foil, electrical, or some other tape/covering, they may be just as good. I would think it may be easy to cut the head off one of these cheap ones and splice it onto a good component cable. The only downside is that there is no Optical/Toslink connection which is pretty important to me

That's a pretty decent price for the HDMI! I am sure it's perfect, especially at that price, and I'd probably be on board to get one like a Pound HD Link cable but it seems Pound need a couple more revisions to make it the best choice.

I just made a couple of XOSVPs and finally had the opportunity to try it out last night.  Unreal quality for video and sound.  Check this out:

The XOSVP seems to be the best way to go (although the are all sold out right now). The biggest problem I see with component cables is that many newer TVs are no longer including the component connections. Eventually, we'll all have to use some sort of HDMI converter, mod the Xbox so it has an HDMI output, or use an Xbox to HDMI cable (once these manufacturers start making better quality cables). I actually have a 4K TV with a component connection but I feed it through a Yamaha receiver that outputs it through HDMI. The picture looks amazing but it may be introducing a tiny bit of lag.  This image I took with my phone doesn't do it justice:

I am definitely interested. It may be a couple weeks before I can purchase one, however. I bought way too many things this past week; most notably, a Sega 32x Night Trap CD. I probably paid too much for it but oh well :)

I just received the HD AV Pack in the mail on Monday. Before it arrived, I found a really nice set of component cables and an 80 pin IDE cable in my electronics junk bin. I have this plastic tub filled to the top of old wires and computer parts so I occasionally dig through it and find new treasures :). Connected the cables and AV pack all up and it works awesome!

      I dismantled and washed an xbox and cleaned the motherboard with alcohol tips - the problem is that the motherboard - controller ports - inner plastic parts of dvd drive and hard drive still stink - it’s like a stale cigarette smell any suggestions? Thanks

      I have seen conversion made out of original xbox controller working with windows operating system so can I use that information to reverse engineer usb windows controller to work with xbox? I dont have any clue how xbox recognizes what kind of accessories are attached to controller port?  
       
      So here are maybe few ideas how approach situation: 
      Combining  original xbox controller cable with standard usb cable?
      Could I use maybe wireless dongle for xbox and hardwire duke into that use it that way?
       
      All information is really appreciated.

      Dear All,
      As you all know, FTP big chunks of data takes forever on a 10mb limit, however was looking for alternatives, there's those SATA to USB adpaters, which you can connect directly the HDD to your PC and have up to 60mb second on a USB 3.0, btw I'm using a 2.5 inch HDD
      Is there any program that can access the HDD FATX system and copy directly to it via PC, I heard of an app namely USBXTAFGUI_V45, also heard of XBOX360Explorer, is any solution for this? I have hips of gigs  on my HDD and don't want to wait forever on FTP on 10 megs when I can have it for at least 30 to 60 hopefully. My HDD is unlocked obviously or else it would be harder.
      Thanks
