Re: 1.6 clock cap

The life of any capacitor should depend on the typical temperatures it has experienced during use and that is largely dependent on the ambient temperature, location ie.ventilation, insulation caused by dust/fluff build up and of course how often it is used. It is my contention that the clock capacit...

Re: Dashboard 0.2 FPS - Corrupt dash or HDD?

Glad to read it is fixed.

BTW looks like the Confluence skin (possibly Confluence Lite) - never knew it showed fps. I'll have to check that out.

Re: Dashboard 0.2 FPS - Corrupt dash or HDD?

Is your Xbox connected to the internet? If so try disconnecting it and restarting. Is it chipped or a softmod? Anything else attached ie. flash drive, memory card, other controller, DVD Dongle, keyboard or mouse - remove all and try again. Your FPS reference - I'm not understanding. What skin are yo...

Album Track Order By Number Not Alphabetically

Is there any way to get XBMC4Xbox to list an album's tracks by their metadata track number ie. their correct album order?

The default is alphabetical and short of adding track numbers to the track titles I've never found a way apart from that to get them to display and play in the intended order.

Re: Original XBox hardmod but won’t open

What you're seeing sounds like the normal MS dash and that indicates the chip is not working or, for some reason, you've lost your main dash. How are you starting the Xbox? It could just be that it is set up to dual boot and you're using the larger eject button (which boots the MS dash) rather than ...

Re: Xbox error 7 and 9

DVD-R is the universal disc media format to use. Although I've found, from my own quite extensive testing, that DVD+R is the next most commonly compatible format the Xbox Philips and Samsung 605B disc drives do have problems, at least they did with the two brands I tested. If you burn AID v4.53 (the...

Re: Xbox overheating even with new tp and 80mm fan mod

Sounds OK to me if that is at the default 20% fan speed but I'd still watch the temperatures. I set the fan speed to auto with XBMC and an aim temperature of 50C. Most of the time the fan idles at 20%. Rocky5's softmod itself uses, like a lot of installers, what is basically a modfied UnleashX dash ...

Re: Xbox overheating even with new tp and 80mm fan mod

What dashboard are you using? UnleashX, XBMC, EvoX? It sounds as if you're probably using UnleashX. The Xbox reporting of temperatures by UnleashX and EvoX is highly suspect and with v1.6 I'm lucky if UnleashX reports <54C except in the middle of winter with the ambient temperature in the room in <2...

Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

It should not have made any difference how old the main dash was, I've used UnleashX v543 (2004) and a variety of old dashboards on both a chipped and numerous softmodded machines for years and never had any trouble launching XBMC. What BIOS are you using? With a modchip all you should need to do is...

Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

I think Rocky 5's XSMT contains XBMC and there is also his XBMC4Kids available too. Did you try to install XBMC from the HeXEn disc using HeXEn itself to install it? If so that might be the cause of the problem. It is contained, for whatever reason in the folder: " Appz ". Why that would make a diff...

Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

My suggestion would be just to try a new source for the v3.5.3 download. If you're reinstalling a corrupted download then it would explain why the problem repeats. Install the new download of XBMC in a single level folder, preferably to F:\Apps. Then it will appear as an application in your dash's m...

Re: Xbox unleashed X.. dig into it.

Is it softmodded or chipped? First thing you should do with a 2TB HDD that has been built for you by somebody else is check that has been done correctly. You should use XBPartitioner v1.3 (must be this version) installed in Apps. If it has been done as it should have been your F and G drives should ...

Re: AID doesn't boot

If you burned it to DVD-R with ImgBurn (x4) then it should boot so, unless your disc drive laser lens is just dirty, it suggests a problem with your disc drive or your PC's RW disc drive. The latter is often overlooked but I've come across a number of instances in forums like this where using anothe...

Re: Trouble installing dashboard

As you are using a chipped Xbox there should be no trouble with any disc.

Philips is the most picky and, from my own experience, its age can effect compatibility. My Philips drive is in a used Xbox I bought years ago and it had clear evidence of wear and tear.

Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

Typical disc media incompatibility issue. If you burned them on DVD-R they should all work and I'd think it being some issue with the DVD drive hardware. But if you burned them on different media (even the brand can make a difference) then that is probably the cause. Pickiest disc drives are the Phi...
