First test with video. Everything seems to be displaying fine:
Now to figure out sound and override the open tray detection.
And by figure out sound, I mean I'm too lazy to do anything for it, but I know exactly what to do when I get off my bum and actually do something for it.
So, what are you looking at?
Well, in this picture, I have the board for the dvd drive and the HDD hooked up.
Video is achieved by a lovely Y Pb Pr to VGA converter
sent through a laptop screen driver board from ebay user NJYTouch
and into an old laptop screen from some 2004ish Dell Inspiron.
Power is just using a standard xbox PSU that I'll be putting in an external case (from a 360's power brick)
The motherboard has all the caps over a cm tall replaced with shorter ones, and ones on their sides, and is being cooled using two VGA coolers, one is an Iceberq Pro 4, the other some deal from Titan. The one from Titan is about 1mm taller, but has about a 5mm smaller diameter.
As far as the software goes, this xbox remains completely unmodded.
Also, that HDD looks bigger every day, but I'm determined to keep to the goal of leaving this unmodded software-side. Meanwhile, I have a little 40Gb notebook drive waiting for whenever I start my next project.This post has been edited by ttsgeb: Jul 16 2012, 05:14 AM
