Component To Hdmi - Best Option?


Recommended Posts

I recently found my set of Monster Component Cables again for my OG Xbox, and I always remember loving the picture quality that came out of those cables. I had been using the Chimeric Systems HDMI adapter and have enjoyed it, but it seems to be producing these "visual" lines in the image that I'm unable to fix. (Shown in the picture below)

I was curious to know if there were any recommended component to HDMI adapters that would work well? I can't use component straight up as I no longer have an input source that has its own component cables, so going with HDMI is a necessity.

Thanks!

(Picture of the "line" issue whilst using the Chimeric Systems HDMI adapter. Screen brightness is due to the picture being a snapshot in between "fading to white" transitions.)

The HDMI adaptor you have is regarded as one of the best.

I use a internal kit from N64 freak but I would not like to say it's going to fix you problem

The wii2hdmi kit and Xbox adaptor you and find around would be a step backward and the component to hdmi adaptors and on par with the wii2hdmi.

The only other option would be the OSSC unit.  What out put are you using PAL 50hz,60hz ,NTSC 480,720,1080 ?

What version Xbox and have you tested a different Xbox with the same setup

And is the problem on a different screen with the same leads?

Whelp, turns out the issue is console related, sadly. My main machine is a 1.6b Xbox with a chip in it.

I had a Softmodded 1.0 that's lying around (doesn't get used because its still completely stock otherwise) and I don't notice the "line" issue on it. 

1.6b

The images are not working for me.

The version 1.6 has a different video chip and can cause problems with some games.

The version 1.0 xbox could be TSOP flashed with only a small amount of work as a TSOP flash will do the same job as a modchip.

Then you could unlock the drive in the 1.6 and fit it in the version 1.0.

To TSOP the version 1.0 it need 2 links added to the main board and you can use conductive paint if you are not able to solder.

 

Where abouts are you located?

If you where closed I would have sorted it for you but the post to Australia would be a killer.

Because the Xbox is already softmodded you are 1/2 way there.

you need to link the spots in the yellow box's to enable the TSOP writing

      I was given two broken original Xbox consoles to try and fix. After fixing the issues with one of them, I tried to test it. As I didn't have a controller for it I bought an adapter like the one in the picture (Adapter) to try and use either a USB arcade stick or one of my wired controllers for PC, Xbox 360, or Xbox One. I eventually bought a controller for it as I could not get anything to work with this adapter. So I am wondering, does this adapter serve any purpose? Has anybody gotten an arcade stick kit like the one in the second picture to work on the original Xbox?

      XBOX ORIGINAL EXECUTER 2.6CE HDMI 3TB HDD Fresh build!!!
      This item sold on Ebay on September 5th, 2021, but buyer just messaged me saying he doesn't have the money. Officially by Ebay, I need to wait until September 9th and I can sell wherever.
      I am in Utah, hoping to ship in USA if possible. $300 + $25 shipping. I'm hoping to sell this system first and see how much of a loss I will take and then likely sell my other 3CE system also...

      Currently loaded with 311 of the best XBOX games, but you should be able to fit EVERY XBOX game ever made for XBOX on this 3TB HDD if you use the HDD READY versions (I can show you how). Everything works correctly, ready to boot and play!
       
      My cost of parts (everything except xbox and xecuter is brand new in August 2021):

      Total Parts is $460, Labor additional (please see below)
       
      I am an expert solderer. I’ve done 10,000+ repairing vintage recording consoles, so the soldering on this is expert quality.
       
      Labor was installing the Xecuter modchip (soldering), removing the clock capacitor and replaced with a capacitor (needed for the revision 1.6) (soldering), replaced 22 capacitors on Motherboard (soldering),removed all the old thermal paste on 2 heat sinks, used fresh Artic Silver thermal paste, clean inside, clean fan, install Ghostcase, install 3TB hard drive, install StarTech adapter, install upgraded 80-way cable, clean inside DVD drive and clean optical, format hard drive, install XBMC4Gamers and the best dashes, load 166 games, test.

      This sale also includes the black cover and old parts including a baggie of the old capacitors.
       
      Current DVD Drive is a Thomson TGM600 wrorking great. I installed the Ghostcase top so you can see the spinning DVD , but old cover is included.
       
      Sale includes power cable, HDMI cable, and composite cable. And 2 controllers included.
       
      All new parts were just bought in August 2021, so this is a fresh build with low hours! I can include documentation and receipts if desired.
       
      The Blue LED Kit is just tacked in place with hot glue in top center. It can easily be peeled off and moved if desired.
