I have recently bought a Xbox V1.6 and would like to mod it with SmartXX chip and install Linux and Asterisk server on it. My idea is to make it a full PBX server, therefore I need to add PCI cards to the Xbox. As the Xbox provides a PCI bus, but no PCI slots, is there any way to build up something like a PCI bridge and connect it to the PCI bus? Then I would buy another Xbox case and put all the new PCI slots in it.
I would be really thankful for any advice, hints and solutions!


Notes: I know that there are some solutions to connect PCI cards externally, but those are priced about 1000$ and I am heading for a cheap solution. If there is no way, I have to use USB devices, but PCI would be much better!

A PCI slot would be awsome!
I could put maybe an old network card in it and add LEDs.
Maybe even a PCI window biggrin.gif beerchug.gif beerchug.gif beerchug.gif blink.gif

WTF?! teh x-box has a network card huh.gif

and i dont see the use at all in making an x-box a sever why not just put a PC in teh sace or something, i dono, i thoguht you didn't really look at severs anyway, kinda stupid.

But, to ones own. Good luck!
