I can get moveis to play without any playback kit. These movies are my backup copies, and once I pop the movie in it auto plays them. I think it may have something to do with the menu on the dvd. I leave the menus out on the backups and they seem to work. But I havent tried to any of the controls (FF,REW,Stop,Pause,ect.) But they will play!!!!! biggrin.gif

Yes DVD-X is hombrew software so yes you need a mod chip to run it

Not neccessarily, all you need is modified bios; abiet modchip, soft mod, or game save exploit.

I have a modded xbox, and do I just burn this program to a dvd-r? I think I remember it saying that I can't do that, or does it have to be cd-rw? I don't have a new DVD-ROM installed, its the stock xbox drive.

I tried this player last night and it goes to play the dvd and flicks back the dashboard and loops if I have Auto DVD selected in the dashboard. could it have something to do with the widescreen option set on the MS dashboard? help sad.gif

Hi !, my question is, does the EEPROM file be modified by using the DVDX2 ?, or what can modify this file?, i ask because i have a modded Xbox (using softmod, Phoenix Bios Loader) and now i want to go to LIVE without the fear for being banned. What should i do ?.

huh.gif Are there any plans to add dongle support to dvdx2.. I like the idea of not needing it, but I have a high def tv and I would like to have the progressive output and be able to control it with my all in one learning sony lcd remote.. If not, is there any way to make the normal dvd app ( the one that comes stock w/ xbox and is used when the mod is off ) play back in progressive?

I not quite sure I understand, but can non-burned DVD movies be played without the remote AND dongle? If it can, is there like forward/rewind/pause/slow/etc for use on the Xbox controller?
