You don't want to use a heat gun. It will warp your board. You would want a
preheater tio preheat the board then desolder the av port.
Preheater? Those are more expensive than the Xbox itself...

just get a pro to change your port it will only cost about the same as the tools its not as easy as it sounds
I guess I could look on craigslist for a "pro" but how do you know who to trust and who not to trust? :/

In case you decide to go thru with the replace by yourself, remember to use flux on the solder points and apply some fresh solder on them to help the old solder points to melt easier and faster.
Any specific brand? Or just whatever I find at Home Depot?

I have done this, you can use a heatgun carefully to remove the new av port from the junk mobo but be careful not to melt it.
Any specific tips on how to not melt it? Certain distance from the port, etc? I have never used a heat gun for something precise before so any tips would be greatly appreciated.
