If you are using sync separators then I recommend the ISL59885 from Intersil. It is just like the EL1883 except it no longer uses an RSET resistor. Instead you connect a 56nf capacitor to a certain pin and it will auto-sync to any sync rate on the fly. Oddly enough, even though I have some samples, I have not built anything with them.
I am interested in playing with the sync signals from the motherboard. However, the pictures I have seen of sync signal acquisition come from an earlier mobo with a Conexant chip. Are there any pictures of mobo sync acquisition from a mobo with a Focus chip?

I mean, A/V Pack is a separate hardware, or the scheme refers to internal A/V board ?
It works for a 1.6 version ?
which kind of bios do I need in mine ?

It's for building your own cable to output the various formats of video and audio the Xbox will support
You can do either internal or external - this just shows you how to wire it.
Yes, apart from the VGA output.
Any BIOS. For VGA you would need a VGA BIOS, but unfortunately there isn't one for the 1.6.

I have a spare USB cable lying around and I though I could add like a extra cable to the connector and stick that neatly on the side of the original A/V pack cable and run it to the A/V box where I would do all the connections and stuff.
But I'm wondering, could I ground all Component signals with one ground?? The thing is the USB has 4 cables in it (Red,Green,White,Black...... and some type of shielding but thats ground as well) and I'm going to use this because I don't want to make a huge tangle of extra cables running along the side of the original one to the box.
USB Cable Color ------- Component Connector
Red --------------------- Red Component Connector
Green ------------------- Green Component Connector
White -------------------- Blue Component Connector
Black -------------------- Common Ground for all Connectors <-- ***Is this possible ??***
Wire Shielding ---------- I guess this one won't be used
Is this connection is do-able or do I have to have a ground specific ground for each one?

It is possible but picture quality could suffer due to interference, for video signals to reduce the interference to the signal the signal wire is normally surrounded by the ground wire (i.e. coaxial), also having individual ground wires for each part of the video signal is ideal, but my cheap HD xbox cable used a common ground. So try it out and see, but if the picture suffers from interference then that is probably your source of it. Also I would consider using the wire shielding for ground vs. just the black wire, therefor protecting the signals from outside interference (but they would still be able to interfere with each other being surrounded by a common ground and not there own).
Hmm... So I think the best option would be to use the black one for ground to the Green channel, and the shielding as a ground for both red and blue channels since both are almost the same signal. Hmm I think it might work.
Ok so all I would need is a couple of Component/RCA jacks and a switch. The switch would be easy to install. Just a switch with 3 terminals, the middle one would be the common ground for mode select, then one side with the HD mode pin and the other with the Advanced mode pin. There is a set of pins that both modes use by default, so I just need to bridge them together and hook up the switch the way I want it.
I'm gonna do a diagram and see if my design works.

I then enabled NTSC mode but my TV which I know can support NTSC displays the picture in black and white.
Almost like it's not compatible with NTSC mode. I check the stock dash to enable HD mode but it's not there yet when the xbox boots into XBMC the TV is detecting 480i mode but I can't get to select any of the HD modes in XBMC either.
Can anyone shed any light on this? do I need like an NTSC version of the xboxdash.xbe file ?
mines originally a PAL btw but converted to NTSC with enigmahs program.

I'm Italian, and I don't know why I cannot switch the HD resolution on my xbox
I've done this modify:
Than I play enigmah video switcher, I select NTSC (press and I reset the console.
After this step, I start with the scart the original dashboard, but I don't find the options of the HD resolution...I've found only Letterbox, widescreen ecc...but ANY hd resolution...
CAN BE THE DASHBOARD (original) outdated????
