[size=4]At the A/V port, connect pins 20 and 24 both to ground to enable analog audio with HDMI video.

Is this possiible on a xbox slim as i tried it with cat5 cable and it did not work could this be because the wire is too thick or something? 90% sure all my soldering was good reasonably experienced with soldering.
Any help would be great thanks

Awesome Tut man, thanks a lot!... but I have the "GREEN" screen, all my wires seems to be ok, I use an old Network cable that i had, used about6-7 inch (mabie a bit more)... Is there any way to fix it?

I read on this and some one mention the same problem, should i cut the wire a bit shorter? is it because the wire is too thin?

Thanks in advance.

Have actually come across a different solution for the xbox slim
I tried this method first and xbox wouldn't even boot
So i bought a official VGA cable and it worked flawlessly
I then opened up the cable to see what was different and found that:
- Monitor Id Bit 1 or VGA pin 12 needs to go to pin 23 on the xbox
- Monitor Id Bit 3 or VGA pin 15 needs to go to pin 21 on the xbox
- Red VGA pin1 goes to pin 3 of xbox
- Green VGA pin 2 goes to pin 4 of xbox
- Blue VGA pin 3 goes to pin 8 of xbox
- H-Sync or VGA pin 13 goes to xbox pin 11
- V-Sync or VGA pin 14 goes to xbox pin 12
- GND or VGA pin 5 needs to go to xbox pin 27

This worked flawlessly for me on a xbox slim only difference really is VGA pins 12 and 15

If I do this on my xbox then would I be able to use the HDMI aswell as this VGA port both at the same time?

My plan is to have a LCD from a portable dvd player indie my xbox 360 replicating what I am playing on the big screen??

Can this be done?

I don't think you can have multiple video outputs with this since you have to 'lock' or ground out which signal you want to use. Correct me if i'm wrong but maybe you could create another input_id and have multiple outputs play?

Hey I did the mod and my wiring is good. I plug in my 15" monitor and the menu on the screen pops up saying out of range does this mean my monitor is to small?

The motherboard:

You obviously need to open your Xbox 360 (bye bye warranty, it's only 3 months anyways who cares), and remove your motherboard from the metal shielding (please be aware of static electricity, it will damage your mobo if you're not careful), we will be soldering to the bottom side of the board, under the audio/video plug.

Each pin is conviently numbered on the board (going across it goes 2, 6, 10, 14... then 4, 8, 12, 16, 20... then 1, 5, 9, 13, 17... then 3, 7, 11, 15...)

IPB Image

Starting on top left, then moving across:

Pins 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, 1, 5, 9, 13, 27 (black) - Ground (they're all connected to each other so it does not matter which ground pin you use.
Pin 4 (green) - Green output (VGA)
Pin 8 (blue) - Blue output (VGA)
Pin 12 (purple) - V-sync (VGA)
Pin 16 (white) - Left (Audio)
Pin 20 (yellow) - VGA Mode select (hook to VGA Pin 11, Monitor_ID)
Pin 3 (Red) - Red (VGA)
Pin 11 (orange) - H-sync (VGA)
Pin 15 (Red) - Right (audio)

OK, solder up all your points (easier said than done, just take your time and triple check that all your connections are correct)

End of part II



so guys, if I need to make a simple audio extension mod wit rca connectors, I can simply use pin 16(white) for left audio, and pin 15(red) for right audio right? is that possible? if so, what about the grounds for audio? or will audio work without any ground? im pretty sure a ground is required here, where do I add the ground from if this is AT ALL even possible.

im targeting an Audio Only mod. nothing extra. thanks guys smile.gif
