I have a v1.4 PAL XBOX, with Xecuter3, X3 vga bios, I also have the IND latest bios (in the config app I think it has a VGA option so if it does then I'll put that vga bios on another bank of the x3). My TV is PAL I think 'cos its a U.K TV, I read in this thread that you need to set the xbox to NTSC for VGA output...is that true & if so, will it display an image on my tv for changing back to PAL again (black & white would be OK as long as I can change it back again)?
My monitor is an Acer Model No: AL1716 s. I don't know if it supports Sync On Green or not but have ordered an LM1881N circuit anyway. If I wire the LM1881N into my homemade VGA Cable (when I make it), will it be OK if my monitor already supports Sync On Green?
I also read in this thread that you need to change to HD to turn on 480p mode in MSDash, (I don't have a HD Cable or a tv with any other inputs except the red white & yellow connectors), so If I wire all three switches to the XBOX A/V Connector on the motherboard, & select HD Mode (9&10:OFF, 11&12:ON, 13&14:ON) I should be able to set the xbox to 480p in MSDash with the instructions earlier in this thread (where you can press the right buttons without anything being displayed on the TV screen) right?
This is how I want to connect everything, it's using an old XBOX A/V Scart Gold Cable, & is the way that JaredC01's VGA Diagram is, instead of using L33's Diagram from the tutorials section (reason being that it has different wiring & I would prefer to have all the wires on the cable rather than having to get +5v & a ground from a USB port on my xbox (my xbox has usb ports). My VGA Diagram. Is this diagram correct?
Thanks in advance.

I'm not really bothered about the MSDash, I just want to fix the green screen wash, not sure how though. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Could it be the way the lm1881n is wired (jaredc01's way instead of l33's way)? Could it be the capacitors that I used (capacitors that I used)?. Could it be that my monitor already supports sync on green & so the lm1881n is making it green?

Are you shure you are using a VGA BIOS? Afaik the lm1881 doesn't affect the color. So desoldering it would not help. If you wanna have the MS dash in 480p make shure you have the most recent version. If you don't wanna go live for the update, a newer game like NFS:MW also does the trick.

My MSDash has the Xbox Live option.

1. I used 1.0µF caps (Didn't see it intel after i made the board)
2. I was trying to use the stock AV cable as the switch one.
The chip i'm using is the X3CE with the VGA patch on (Witch sucks since i'll have to reflash the chip if i can't get this to work). and my box is a 1.0, with a conexant chip.
Should i try one before the other? They are both going to be a pain to fix, but if i can get away with only doing one, that would be great.

I've been waiting for that day forever, and likely will keep on waiting indefinently......should have switched my major from zoology to computer science, then maybe i'd be of some help to figure it out.
