I think he means bicoloured leds tongue.gif Otherwise, bi-directional leds are the bicoloured ones that have two leads when you hook up lead 1 to + and lead 2 to negative its one colour, and when you reverse the connection (the direction) then the other colour lights up. Hard to explain but oh well laugh.gif

yea insanity thats what im lookin for.....apparently ive been told that if you change the color of the front led's it has to be a bi-directional led....and what im lookin for is basically an led that would light up white for both directions....or a way to wire a non bi-directional so it would work but just be white....or a bi-directional led that is like white as a primary and whatever as a secondary......also if anyone has any idea were i can find preferably 2 4" white cathodes please let me know....i tried ebay and all they had in 4" was uv, green, red, blue, and i believe orange....there must be 4" white cathodes out there some place right?

There probably out there somewhere,

Ebay sux because they rape you on shipping, and I had one I bought of ebay die on me after only 3 days! Yeah the fucking inverter fried and took my cathode with it, needless to say I was pissed. grr.gif

I would look in the buy/sell forum, ther'll probably have something for you there, and a good seller that won't screw you on shipping.

I believe the leds your looking for are infact bicolour leds, go to LSdiodes.com, they're great and i'm pretty sure they have the colour combination Bicolour leds you're looking for.

If you want, you can always hook up two single 3mm colour led's of your choice on each side of the eject button assembly, It'll probably be brighter in the end if thats what you want. The bicolours are nice because if you know what you're doing it's just desolder and swap, but if you feel less confident just cut the prongs and solder a new bicolor to them. (if you suck at desoldering stuff i recoommend this)

You'll want to be sure of the wiring setup for the led sequence you want , I believe, xbox_hackz.com has a good diagram on their site, but don't hold me to that if not, ask someone.

Hope I was helpfull, tongue.gif

Oh yeah, I think ADPmods.com might sell the cathodes you're looking fo
