It sounds as though it's chipped. The only way to know which chip is to open it up and take a look.

there is no way to tell without opening it
even with an ftp
it also has enigmah in it and i can change the settings to ntsc ,but i dont have any component cable

can you tell me which component cable you recommend for hd
cant seem to get Monster GameLink 400 X

FTP might help you identify if it's chipped or softmodded, but in your case if you have to press two buttons to get the Xbox to boot to a modded dash then it's definitely chipped. You have to open it to see which chip.

Composite =/= HD, ever.

eBay has loads of original Xbox 1 component cables, e.g.:

There's no need to quote an immediately preceding post.....

The original MS dongle would be the one to go for, or the Konig.

Yes. It makes the pictures 100 times worse. That's why every component connected DVD player was designed that way - to deliberately make the picture rubbish so you'd buy Blu-Ray when they eventually invented it.

You buy the cables where you buy all other PC and video cables - Amazon, eBay, local PC and electronics stores.

720p is generally considered the best compromise with an Xbox 1. 1080i can be choppy and give you dropped frames, because the hardware just can't cope with 1080i.
