Re: Poor resolution and Enable 720p disabled

Yep you got it right, you'll need component leads for 720p. I've seen some people give negative comments on the cable you've chosen but I think they're in the minority and for the price and availability I'd go for it. If you were interested in digital audio out then you could search for the official...

[FS] Crystal X3CP (now sold) and other xbox items

Edit: thanks for the interest, Crystal X3CP now sold I've also got some misc xbox items I've got lying around so figured I'd try and sell these on. I've bundled some pics together here but in summary I have: - 1 crystal xbox, v1.6 softmodded but other then that completely stock. Good condition - v1....

Re: My MCXB X3 version rack mount style case loaded!

Having never seen one of these before I now have instant envy! Thanks for sharing, it reminds me of the XBCase which I would also love to have. This might be a daft question but are they made by the same company? Judging by your previous posts you must have quite some collection; do you have a page ...

Re: LCD for Xecuter 3

Cheers the for links guys, psyko_chewbacca, the 38mm height on the lcd you posted up sounds doable, I'll check alibaba out although I think that is the supplier on that page is one I had previously contacted. Thanks anyway!

Re: LCD for Xecuter 3

psyko_chewbacca, I had seen your post over on Assembler and was impressed by your modding skills! When I was looking at doing this your thread was the only one I came across where a non-Xecuter lcd was sourced that could fit over ports 3&4. I tried emailing the sales support on a couple of different...

Re: LCD for Xecuter 3

Yep as stated, I wanted to do this myself but when I saw the amount of soldering required in this interesting guide I quickly gave that up! Combined with the 'official' cable, the XLCD was virtually plug'n'play. The other advantage was the small size - it could be custom fit above controller ports 3...

Or if your Xbox is pre-1.6, which it needs to be for ram upgrade, you can flash the tsop with a custom bios

Re: scrape video library just from samba share .nfos?

I tried playing around with the nfo files and it was the <episodeguideurl> url tags screwing up the scraping, thanks for the help Dan Dar3. If I manually remove that tag then the files get scanned in ok. I can't find a setting in MCM to stop adding that tag in each .nfo file so have tried using Embe...

Thanks for the reply and posting a link to the wiki, I don't have an <episodeguide> tag in the tvshow.nfo file but there is an <episodeguideurl> tag in there which, for South Park, links to the follwing dead link: <episodeguideurl>http://thetvdb.com/api/xbmc/series/75897/all/en.zip</episodeguideurl>...

Hi guys, what with the new beta release of XBMC I figured I'd finally like to get my video collection showing up in the XBMC library. I've got a samba share containing a folder of tv shows and I've used Media Center Manager to create .nfo files, rename each folder and download posters/screenshots et...

yep that's what I do, just squeeze a pair of snips under. I did once manage to cause the cap to leak by squeezing snips underneath but it beats taking out the mobo and desoldering!

Don't mean to hijack this thread but if using Media Center Master to generate .nfo files I notice there are 3 versions of XBMC to generate metadata for - pre-Dharma, Dharma/Eden or Frodo. For XBMC4XBOX 3.5 can somebody recomend which 'version' of XBMC MediaCenterMaster should generate .nfo files for...

Re: Xbox HD upgrade

If the xbox isnt a v1.6 I would do a tsop flash, chuck in the new hard drive and prepare it from Hexen - assuming the xbox is a pre 1.6 you could also remove the clock capacitor as well while you have the lid off

Re: All I need now it to know which bios won't frag my boxes

when you say the xbox freezes up with the x2_5035 bios do you get an error code or anything? It could be that the bios isnt looking in the correct path for a dash, so using a recovery disc such as Hexen or Slayers, ftp to the xbox and modify the .ini file to make sure it's looking for E:/apps/xbmc/d...

Re: All I need now it to know which bios won't frag my boxes

As proffessor_jonny says, you can't use an X3 bios with an X2 chip. The X2_5035 bios is a good shout, I personally like changing the settings via the .ini file on the hd although some people don't like the longer boot times associated with reading the file from hd If you wanted to use a 256kb bios s...
