Re: XBOX to HDMI solution

The Denon 910W.


One of the ONLY receivers that can take 480i 480p 720p 1080i and 1080p over component and output it as such OR upconvert it to 1080p HDMI! Plug all the consoles into the receiver, one HDMI to the TV.

Done

Re: XBOX to HDMI solution

I pop it into my AVR. Denon 910w. Any composite or componant signal gets converted to HDMI and upresed to 4k! I did direct comparisons against plugging it into my TV's componant input and the AVR looks MUCH MUCH better!

Its the best thing you can do for old consoles on a new TV

Re: Usb windows hard drive setup and 1.6 video patches

1. Can’t really help you here, I used a generic or 360 transfer kit with my HDD’s and it’s plug them in and run the xboxhd.bat. Make sure windows can see and installed the drivers for your adaptor. ( it asks for admin writes as it’s required to get the drives ) 2. The script uses custom font values...

Re: Usb windows hard drive setup and 1.6 video patches

Hey Rocky! Yeah, so I have about 4x different USB drives installed on my machine and it sees none of them. When you say the 360 transfer kit which one do you mean? Do you need to have the files setup (C and E and all that with the eeprom) in order for it to even detect drives? Ill try on my laptop w...

Re: Quick Softmod question

Man I have tried everything. Different enclosures, different cables. For the life of me I cannot get any USB hdd to recognize in zboxhdm23usb

I run xboxhd.bat and try select 1 to scan for HDD's and nothing. Tried different ports.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!!

Re: Quick Softmod question

Oh absolutely! I have backups of my backups. Problem is I did it SOOOO long ago I forgot where the heck I put it haha.
