Hdmi Plug Aka X2hdmi

Recommended Posts

 

Since there is no clear tutorial on the web I will submit it! 

I have made a few plugs from wii2hdmi converters.

These converters are plenty and cheap, they do not upscale,  unless you buy more expensive wii2hdmi plugs with a hole on the top. 

To follow this tutorial you need a few items:

(aftermarket preferred)  av cable

Wii2hdmi converter

Thin wire

 

A few tools:

Soldering iron, preferred regulated station. 

Sharp knife

Cutting tools for metal (angle grinder is fast) 

Electrical wire stripper/cutter

A pocket knife or small screwdriver. 

I used a chinese av cable, the long and short soldering connections are opposite to original! 

Just follow the pictures and you will be on hdmi in no-time. 

Reminder,  the wii2hdmi boards are very sensitive to static electricity,  i have busted a few.

push it through as far as possible and solder a wire to the top and bottom,  against the plastic,  this will keep the internals in place and removes stress on the converter. Please login or register to see this attachment.

time to test! Please login or register to see this attachment.

720x480@60i, the boot screen,  some tv units have problems displaying this throigh hdmi! Please login or register to see this attachment.

we have reached 1920x1080@60i, maximum resolution of xbmc,  although I advice to use 720.

If you miss the options for higher resolution,  make sure the system is set to NTSC,  in pal it is unavailable.  Use enigma video switcher. 

I will start to sell these adapters in a short while for €45,- due to the work it takes. 

 

I have given all the connection types another color and the pin numbers are not the official ones! 

Any questions?  Be free to ask.

      Hi everyone!
      What started out as a "simple fix" for an Xbox I won at SEGE last month has turned into a full passion for getting the most our of it. To that end, I decided to up my game out of the back of the console by going the HDMI route. I invested in the Pound Technologies Xbox HDMI HD Link Cable, and I am thrilled to report that the results are great! I think you'll be pleased with it, especially if you're still connecting to an HDTV through composite.
      Here's my complete unboxing, setup, and comparison of the original Xbox composite cable and the new HDMI Pound cable. Enjoy, and please share your thoughts on it.
      Thanks!
      Blaine

      I know this group has a lot of new HDMI solutions recently, and has focused on the wii2hdmi mods. ( and I know there are more options coming in the near future)
      Here's a new option for you....I've recently finalized a completely new design (it's been in the works since christmas, but I'm pleased to announce that it is now completely functional) -supports component to HDMI conversion at all supported xbox video resolutions -Wolfson Audio IC to convert S/PDIF signal for the HDMI transmitter -Individually shielded video signals -Internal install will be an option   There are two basic ways to take advantage of the digital audio 1)Direct decoding when passed through an HDMI receiver 2)Optical pass through from your TV to you receiver 3) it can also pass the stereo audio to play directly on your TV   Sales are probably about a month out still, as I will be sending units out to a few trusted testers and get testing done with some of those problematic xbox systems that are around.

      Hello,
      So i revived my V1.0 PAL Xbox (TSOP modded with evox m8 bios) and ordered an HDMI adapter on ebay, hoping to get better resolution in the menues and games that support it.
      i bought this: Please login or register to see this link.
      Ive used the hexen dvd to activate the 480p,720p and 1080i in the MS dashboard.
      but when i start the system my projector freaks out and states that it first recieves a 480i signal, then a 640x200 120hz(!) signal. Any clue to what this could be?
      i'm running through a onkyo tx-nr626 av reciever and a optoma 200hd projector. the onkyo just denies passing the 640x200 signal trough. if i connect the projector directly to the hdmi adapter i get a very strange image(probably just the 640x200 data overlapped)
      I can change to the normal composite cable without any issues in 480i trough the reciever and projector with 1080p upscaling.
