Xbox Vga Doesnt Work On 1.6?
Posted 09 August 2006 - 06:59 PM
Last night I bought a used v1.6b xbox and was thinking how cool it would be to do a vga mod, keep in mind the xbox isn't chipped yet(duoxs coming in mail).Well according to the diagram no 1881 chip was needed. So I thought cool. well I got the wiring all done it looked briliant couldnt of done a better job. Well to my surprise when I pluged it into my sony 50inch plasma, it said no signal ugh!!!,however the light on the xbox stayed green and didnt flash orange and green. Then I pluged it into my 19inch monitor and still same thing happened. Please someone help me. Is this not working sence my xbox isnt chipped yet?, or because im using a v1.6 xbox please help!

Of course for VGA not working it can be a number of issues. Some diagrams I have without the LM1881 will only work with 'Sync On Green' compatible monitors. Also you have to set the logic lines correctly to tell the xbox what A/V pack is attached, as the same wires are used for different signals.
Then a BIOS has to be run which will instruct the video encoder to do RGB color math instead of YUV. Then those BIOSes do not want to run with a 1.6 because the documentation for the Xcalibur was never made public so it can't be programed for RGB.
