im confused on the need for all the switches. right now i have the coaxial audio output mod done from the tutorial. Now lets say i want to add svideo and the component video outputs. would i still need the switches? Also, will i still need to have the standard xbox av cable plugged in?

maxpowe2120, all AV cables for the XBOX use a combination of jumper cables in the AVIP plug to instruct the video encoder (Conexant, Xacaliber, Focus) as to what type of output to enable for the particular cable type. By making your own custom output sockets you still have to instruct the encoder. By using the three switches you are effectively cloning the job of the AVIP plug. Different switch combinations, setup a 3 bit binary instruction for the encoder.
Ignore the line marked "Output" This has nothing to do with the AVIP or encoder but is necassary for my tutorial.
The three switches are representing Pins 9(Mode 1),11(Mode 2) and 13(Mode 3). The combination of binary inputs to the encoder provides the pout formats you require to drive the sockets you install.

but what about s video. i do not see anything about using s video with digital sound. also do you know where i can purchase an s video jack and compent video jacks?
ps: On the tutorial for coax audio, the pins used are different then the ones shown in your diagram? whats up with that?
Assuming you're talking about the Digital Output tutorial by DataBitz, I think the Digital Output tutorial used different grounding pins, but I believe the data pin (pin 6 on this diagram, I think) is common between both this diagram and the tutorial. It seems like every tutorial/diagram released uses different pin numbering schemes.

-i've bee looking at various tutorials and faqs over the past few days, and i finally came up with a diagram for what i want to do.
can someone tell me if this is correct and if it would work right?
also, JaredC01, you said that the component only works in high def mode. does that mean, that unless i have an HD tv, i won't get an image, or what? because i've run component video on my set through a high definition pack before with no problems.

Ok, I did this mod today to add the red and white audio on the back of me box, and its ok, but the problem im getting is if i plug the red and white in (at the same time) i only get output on one channel, when i plug them in sperately, i get audio output from both channels, wtf is goin on?? I still have my standard cable connected, is that whats causing the problem? Can I not get audio from both the back ports aswell as the standard cable?
