I've wanted to do this mod myself, but I've heard from many many people that you get horrible reception (just like yours) when the reciever is mounted inside.

Its not hard to run a nice thick wire or something to the front of the xbox is it.
Even take the shielding out and it should work alot better.

I heard this mod works really well when it's done the right way [no offense, if that comes off as an insult, I was just saying because I've seen a few around here leaving testimonials in the thread where the tutorial was made].

This Xbox already has the X3 chip, X3CP, installing X3IR kit. Planning to share the X3IR's infrared eye with the DVD dongle. Also planning to install relays so that if a wired controller is plugged into ports 1 or 2 (where the Logitech dongles will be wired) or port 3 (where the DVD dongle will be wired), the wired controller will override the internal mod. Found a guide on how to do this from way back in the day... Also going to have two green LEDs in each controller port.
My question is mainly about the reception issue, and whether anyone has successfully done this mod with multiple Logitech dongles. Which is the better option, cutting away metal shielding or wiring an external antenna wire,... Or both? Ideally I need these to work from 10-15 feet away... Is that hoping for too much?
After I get all of that decided, I just have to figure out whether a ring of green LEDs around the jewel is overkill or whether it would contribute to the subtle accent I'm looking for with the controller port LEDs.

i have a slim with player one taken by the amazing logitech controller, with the sheilding out it is great. i ran a wire soldered from the antenna thing along the inside of the left side (not sure if its necessary, but why not?) and i have the dongle on player 4, i desoldered the ir reciever and placed it where the power button used to live and put i fitted tinted plexiglass piece over the whole (Mines a slim so no need for the tiny power button) and i bondo'd over the p1 and p4 controller ports so its all smooth and no ports that are useless. but you can put a switch on the ports in the back if you want. or some sort of octocoupler?

Just thought I'd throw my opinion in here: I have an X3CP and X3IR as well. And I have my DVD Dongle hardwired. I found it much easier to take the IR eye off the DVD dongle, extend it with three wires and hide it in between the metal shielding and faceplate, with the X3IR in the spot in the X3CP for it. I did that for my crystal box and my translucent green box. Works great and a lot easier, and you can mount the IR dongle anywhere.
