Re: SATA Adaptor Compatibility thread

Push forward, relax, disregard the Chinese :roll:

You very well just need an 80wire cable. But try booting with the jumper on, then off. If it doesn't, you can try fiddling with your bios to see if anything can be done. That is, if you have a chip/TSOP.

Re: Should I tint my heatsink?

Best practice and thus comes recommended by me. Still, I just use as little thermal paste as possible because I'm cheap.

If it were a special project, yes. I took care to have my 1.0ghz Xbox treated as well as possible.

Re: [Skin] Rapier Clarity Mod (3.5.47)

Consider forking the project? Seems to be the best way to approach this. I think the RCB Xbox specific script is a good contender for a community sustained plugin. 2 of my many cents

Re: [RELEASED] XBMC Origins v1.0.0

Running at 720p great.

The plugin settings window does have a problem, displaying the cancel and confirm buttons off the bottom of the visible screen area.

Thanks Dom

Re: trade !

Seems pretty specific. How long have you been trying to trade/sell it? I keep thinking, if I lived in Europe...

Good luck.

The site needs a favicon.ico in the public site root.

Re: SMB shares and Windows 10

AFAIK it has been this way since Win7? Or was it a service pack update that brought Win7 to this standard after the fact?

Generally, unless you are on a secure connection or a completely untrusted network, you should always set a password for your Administrator. It is just best practice anyway.

I've been at work too much to test this. Byron, has Ninhooo improved upon your work, or ported his previous work from the other skins?

Very sleek. I've been moving, as such my Xbox isn't really in the priority list, but will definitely update when I get settled. Thanks byron.

Re: Coding new stuff for LCD addons

Happy to read about your work on this. I am kind of disappointed in the capability of LCD library as it stands.

The shutdown on exit feature will be nice.

You have to get in touch with trusty. The email address you can find posted somewhere. They are the only person actively producing 1.4ghz Xbox, switch and all.

Re: XBOX 2TB SATA Upgrade Tutorial

Isn't this an option? You can chip this one that's broken. Then get a (matching version) EEPROM and write to the Xbox. Prepare a new drive with the HD unlock code from the new EEPROM and you're back to softmodded. You can alternatively get a pre-made EEPROM reader/writer or wire up one of your own. ...

Re: Sound Output At The AVI Plug.

Good idea, like a docking tray built in. I like to think of the Xbox as a badass mp3 player for the TV. How about something USB powered? If you wire up a powered hub on a relay with a controller port. Or a Bluetooth stereo audio module. For wireless audio of course. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C4N4...
