Hello just wondering, how much better is the picture clarity through the component to hdmi vs just straight component to the tv.
HDMI is the way of the future as component is being phased out on TVs and Xbox component leads wear out.
Much better idea having a plug on the back of the machine, (HDMI), and then the HDMI lead can be just about any size so no longer restricting how far the machine can be placed away from the TV which was always a problem using dedicated component cables.
I have one machine connected by a 5 meter HDMI lead that would have only been possible using connectors in the past.
A single HDMI lead is also a whole heap neater than the 5 lead comparison using component.
I don't use an upscaler HDMI converter so the signal is still 720P.
So if the signal is as good as component and the HDMI cables are available everywhere, why would you continue using the original Xbox leads?.
The way I illustrated to do this mod is piss easy. I purposely designed it to be easy so others could somewhat future proof there machines.
I figured this would extend the useful life of these machines rather than a mod that may look good but does little to how long the machines would be useful after all it is pointless when you can't get a TV to plug it into is it?.
