Well, since I have premier account, paypal's gonna charge me $0.30 for each transaction. Since I'l be providing the postage and envelope, let's make it an even $2.00 shipped for anyone who wants to pay with paypal.

If you want a switch, and want to pay via paypal, please PM me for my paypal email account.

ferrell, yours turned out awsome! That switch I found was the smallest they had that I could find at Radio Shack. I am glad that I inspired this, mine was just thrown together to see if it would work, I knew there would be some good looking ones showing up sooner or later.

This is a great idea, however I have a concern about this...

Does anyone know if these lines actually bring out the CPU "reset" strobe lines?

While possible it's fairly unlikely that this is the case. Given that, what is actually causing the CPU reset? A ground short? Ugh not good if that is the case.

Does anyone actually know?

It simulates the changing of video modes. Say while the Xbox is running, you remove the standard A/V cable and plug in the HiDef pack, it will reboot the xbox into the new mode. With this reset mod, it grounds the pin at the A/V connector on the MB, making it think that a new type of connector was installed and it reboots. I don't think this should harm anything, that is my personal opinion though, I am not an electronics genius.

But that is a great reply.

This begs the question: Is the Xbox made to accept AV changes on the fly?

I sorta doubt that the AV connectors are optically or otherwise isolated to prevent damage to the Xbox's IC's...

So the "fear factor" still stands....

I was actually impressed with the shipping...I was expecting a switch in an enveloped. two envelopes, one padded....I dont think much would happen to that little switch.

Just modded my memory card, and I must say excellent idea. Dunno why anyone would do it to the controller instead. I got my switch out of an old psx mega memory card. Figured these would be the obvious choice for fitting into a memory card. smile.gif Anyway these can be found pretty cheap used at EB's and Gamestops.

I'm in agreement with you there, but must admit, the reset button would be nice.

What other options are there for a remote reset button? Any thoughts?
