Trouble Setting Hd Using Bitfunx Hdmi Adaptor

Recommended Posts

I have a TSOPED Xbox PAL console and it is running the 2TB Origins image.

I had previously set the the video mode to NTSC and was using the HD resolutions fine no problem with a HD component cable, only trouble was the cable was not good quality and caused a lot of buzzing sound through my speakers.

So I bought the Bitfunx HMDI adaptor (think it is similar, if not same as the Pound one).

Problem I have now is that I can't seem to use it and display in NTSC HD modes at all.

If I set the console to PAL the Xbox shows the EVOX boot screen and then loads the dashboard fine (obviously only in the lowest res PAL mode)

If I set the console to NTSC the Xbox shows the EVOX boot screen but then the dashboard won't show as it appears the TV is not receiving a HD signal.

 

I am stuck, is there anything I can try?

 

Thanks in advance.

A quick google tells me it's from Aliexpress

I have one and I rate it lower than a Pound HDMI cable if you can get that low.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

When in NTSC mode, connect the working but problematic high-def cable, run the ms dashboard to verify that the high-definition modes 480p and possibly 720p are enabled.  Leave the 1080i video setting Off.  Power off and connect the bitfunx cable.  What happens?

I find the Wii2HDMI works great. I should look into replacing the existing connector with it though,,,

Update, I've managed to get it working with the HD modes, although it's a bit of slightly annoying process.

Basically I've found that the Bitfunx adaptor doesn't like switching automatically to the HD modes used during the dashboard on my LG tv after the Evox boot screen. 

To get around this I have to switch the TV to another hdmi input channel and then back to the one connected to the xbox, then it will display the dashboard in HD.

      Hello,

      I have used the official component cable for my original Xbox for years without any issues, until now. This is what happens:

      This only seems to happen on menu's. No problems in-game so far.

      At first, I thought the cable was damaged, so I bought a Kaico HDMI adapter to replace it, but this is what happens when I use it:

      I decided to grab my older Xbox from the attic for testing and both cables work perfectly on that console, so I think the cables are not the issue.

      I'm no expert at all, so can somebody tell me what's going on with my console? Can it be fixed?

      I recently tried to softmod my old xbox and bricked the hdd due to not ejecting the game disc in the end of the installation process. Now the dashboard is gone and I can't even boot retail games using the machine.
      I just bought an xbox with a modchip (xecuter 2) and I'm wondering if I could swap the hdd in the modded xbox with the bricked xbox and install the ms dashboard from a disc.

      i like to play halo 2 on xlink kai but my vizio 4k tv just makes it not fun. i have adjusted all the settings in the menu to give minimum latency but it's still there. someone pointed out that part of the latency is caused by the fact that the xbox is sending an analog signal to the tv and the tv has to convert it to digital before it can put it to the screen(i know there is inherit input lag in a va panel led tv but that's not what i'm talking about right now). i said all that to ask this question, would one of the hdmi mods for the xbox help solve some of that latency problem by sending a digital signal to the tv? my current setup is using the microsoft hd component adapter and component cables. the tv is a px75-g1. btw, i know it's best to play on a crt but that is difficult right now for several reasons.
