XBox Internal Hdmi Install

Recommended Posts

I've been asked about hot to internally install my HDMI mod into an Xbox. Well i finally found the time and did such an install properly!

As i don't like soldering wires all over the place i went a different route and made it a permanent install replacing the original Video Connector. Cause who would use an old composite cable if you have an hdmi out right? Audio is provided through the HDMI signal of course and it supports 5.1. And with the 3D printed plate to cover the rest off the opening it looks perfect in my eyes.

And the best part it does almost not need any modification to the Case! Well except trimming a tiny bit off the DVD caddy so it doesn't touch the PCB. The PCB itself does fit into any revision console and is relatively easy to install.

Any thoughts about the install?

[mention=226]XC-3730C[/mention] That's my own HDMI mod. I developed it myself and built it specially for this purpose.

Damn, do you sell that? Looks amazing!

God damn this looks so cool. I could bite my own ass I just bought a upgraded console from you and didn't wait the few extra weeks to see this. Any chance of you installing this on my 128mb ram board? :D

I'm assuming thats just a really compact component converter? Is the quality/color reproduction identical or virtual identical to the regular component output? Have you noticed any input lag (there obvious will be some but if its significant is the question). If you ever end up making a few more and want to sell it as a kit I would love to buy one.

Is there any ghosting or artifacts? Also, will you offer a system with HDMI that also preserves the AV port? Reason being is sometimes, I like to connect my Xbox to a CRT monitor via component.

Yes  it does work perfectly and took quite some time to develop!

For now i only have 3 finally installed boards and will possibly offer them later on. But for now there's no internal kit offered.

No i haven't planned a version that can be installed to that position while still beeing able to keep th original video port. As you would have to hard link the component mode and that deactivates the Composite video output so the sense would be gone ayway!

Man, if you got this into the hands of the guys over at the "my life in gaming" youtube chanel there is a horde of people (myself included) that would fall all over themselves to give you their money for an install kit (assuming the image quality is on par or better than component).

@ironsniper1 Yes, they will be avaylable for sale in a while. For now i just want to have a few out there to be tested be others. When all the feedback is positive i will offer them installed to upgraded motherboards or as a diy kit to install yourself. But for now they aren't avaylable in masses. Just the few i still have as prototypes. If there is interest in testing them preferably from people within europe i still have 3 i can offer right now.

If you need testing let me know, what’s the deal. I buy it and test it?

N64 Freak & Rocky5 teaming up would be some of the most epic stuff this scene has ever seen!!!

I concur - they are both clearly the heavyweight champions of the OG Xbox.

I use a wii2hdmi converter,  the problem i have is that larger screens have problems with 480p in 4:3 ratio.

      Hello everybody,
      i got a Xbox 1.1 with Xecuter3 chip installed (soldered, purple one) here. It comes with a power and a component cable. The compontent cable was made by myself (3rd party plug + og sd-av cable) and does not show any noise (no ghosting or etc., refer to pictures). In addition the package includes a Duke controller and a controller s. Everything is in very good shape and works perfectly, only the Duke's cable insulation got a little bit loose that does not affect the the functionality in any way.
      I did also some refurbishment:
      - Clock capacitor was removed
      - mobo's top side was cleaned with spirit (94% alc.)
      - fresh thermal paste was applied on cpu and gpu
      - the jammed Samsung DVD-drive was replaced with a Philips DVD-drive.
      - installed a Samsung 400gb HDD (HD400LD, IDE) with coinops 8 massive and 80+ xbox games pre-installed (total of over 4000 games)
       
      This package costs 450 € + shipping fee (via PayPal, shipping from Germany, EU only). Feel free to ask me any question.
       
      Best regards

      Hello everybody,
      I've been reading the forums for a few months, and I have to request something that is very dearly to me. It comes after the small intro.

      I have a previously modded Xbox OG, but I failed I reckon and it only boots the official bios now. I want to thank my dad for showing what gaming was back in 1994, and purchasing me a Dreamcast in 1999 and the Xbox in 2002...Nostalgia Highway to Memories Camp...😔✌🏽️

      So : The Year is 2020, and now I want to have a definitive ultimate version/edition of my Xbox that've kept for almost two decades.

      I've seen CPU, RAM, DVD reader and belt, capacitors, IDE/SATA cables replacements or upgrades, the HDMI mod and the GPU overclock. This all made me have fantaisies, I am too little knowledgeable about the electronics modding and skills.
      Basically I am searching for someone that can mod my Xbox and upgrade the specs. I am living in the area next to the Border between Switzerland and southern Germany.
      I don't know what are the exact component bust my requirements is to be able to at least play games with patched .xbe for the DLCs(that I purchased back then, looking at PGR2 and SWBF2)(I still have all physical games with me) and 720p patches as well as some N64, PS1 and Dreamcast emulators with HDMI output (I have the Scart Advanced Pack & HD AV Pack imported from US). I have two Xboxes. One is a v1.1, the other 1.6. Both have a 500Gb HDD. Everything can be cleared and wiped. Softmod must be anyway.

      The purpose for my Xbox is to be the Leisure Room console with couch/cabinet setup. It hasn't a commercial purpose.
      A typical scenario is : I want to show my friends old gems and just play from time to time with my brother who shared the experiences with me (I am the elder brother).
      So it has a purely gaming use of OG Xbox games and Retroarch emulator. As well as maintaining tools for archiving and updating

      I am confused, it's true, about modchips having only used softmods. A Modchip is a hardmod right ? Which Modchip is the most developer or last updated?
      I am thinking about the Xecuter 3 and X-Chip ones after looking through the 4th Gen comparison chart in the forum here.

      I always wondered why people would use many launchers and different OS, with different features like remote media or other networking services?
      I don't want to have too much things. It must be pretty straight forward for gaming : clear, quick and clean.
      I hope N64 Freak (even when he/you said a month ago you're not actively offering them for long anymore), Neighbor or some one knowledgeable reads this 😍

      Thank you for reading, and I'm glad to have happy times in the forums !

      Hi, my precious modded Xbox is a UK device and I have been working on the basis that the PSU is 220v only and will need to be replaced with a 110v supply. Can anyone confirm that this is the case - if it can handle multi voltage then that would be a great surprise. Obviously if I need to replace the PSU thats fine - would anyone have any tips / pitfalls I need to be aware of??
      Cheers
