wanted to play them in progressive scan (I have the video mode set to NTSC and 480p enabled in the dash) so I downloaded the Progressive Scan patcher but I don't know how to actually apply the patch with this program

I open up a command promt window and get -

C:Documents and SettingsHitcher>

So how do I find and run the program from here?

Sorry for not having a clue.

Also, how do I tell what dash I've got?


Just use progpatcher on the .xbe after using dvd region patch and all will be in lovely 480p!!

Sweet! Thanks for the updates guys.

I used the region free first on a virgin dash
then the progessive patch

And the progressive patch didnt work after as it was only ouputing the dvds at 480i.

So I'll go back home today and apply the region free on top of the progressive patched dash I have now. beerchug.gif

That's my problem - I don't know how to use it.


1. After downloading progpatcher to HDD on PC, open dos shell (command prompt in XP)
2. copy the .xbe (xboxdash.xbe in this case), into the same folder as progpatcher (not 100% needed but make it easier)
3. type the following in the dos shell c:progpatcher xboxdash.xbe (assuming that progpatcher is on your root c: drive and not in a folder
4. Progpatcher will patch and will make a copy called xboxdash.xbe.patched
5 copy the new file back to xbox HDD and rename to xboxdash.xbe (you need to move or delete your original file)
Reboot and low and behold full progressive scan glory!!!!

Yes, it's worked a treat.

I now have a remote controlled, multi-region, progressive scan DVD player. biggrin.gif

Well done sylver77.

It works!
My xbox is a 1.0 and DVDRXv1.0 doesn't recognize the dashboard.
Before the patch, I tested with a real R4 DVD and it stop at the wrong region screen
After the patch: beerchug.gif pop.gif beerchug.gif pop.gif beerchug.gif pop.gif pop.gif beerchug.gif beerchug.gif

My system configuration:
K:1.00.4034.01

Thanks a Lot!!

I have a 4817.01 dash and i didn't work.

Even tried with a hex editor, the dash then boots but resets as soon as i put in a DVD disc.

Hoping for a patch that will do 4817 smile.gif

Please tell me what version of the dashboard you have, and i'll try to do a patch for these versions ASAP (maybe next week)

Did not work for me. Think my Dashboard is too old? I went in to System Info section of the M$ Dashboard and it reports

K:1.0.4977.01
D:1.0.4034.01

Is that the info you require ?

I have.
4034 and 3944 not working.
Bios x4976.02 on both machines

3944 patched OK but has no effect. Still get invalid DVD region.
4034 will not patch at all.

I can provide both xbe's.
Would be nice to have a universal patcher.
Keep up the good work.

note : for people having dash 4034 (and previous ?) (erexx & hessian), you can use dvdx v1 ( http://downloads.mas...r_dvdx_v1.0.zip ) to pach your dash !
