So I softmodded my XBOX awhile ago using Ndure 3.1. Everything seemed to have worked fine except now I am discovering a problem with playing games in HD. I hooked it up to my HDTV which supports 480p/720p/and 1080p (will accept 1080i sources) using the component cables but every time I launch a game, the tv tells me it is only receiving a 480p 16:9 signal (at least the 16:9 is working).
I understand that you have change the video settings in the MS dash. I have enabled 1080i in the MS dash and even after restarting the dash still shows the changes I made. The selectable video options in UnleashX also change according to the MS dash settings. In fact, after enabling 1080i in the MS dash, my tv shows it is receiving a 1080i input when I am at the UnleashX dash. However, as soon as I start up a game from my hard drive, then the video goes back to 480p.
After researching, it looks like this is a problem with not having the MS dash on my shadow c. Through the file manager I see an empty shadow c. If I launch the Ndure toolset I can see the real c has xboxdash.xbe and xb0xdash.xbe. I can access the dash by launching xb0xdash.exe or by starting the xbox by pressing the eject button. I cannot access the MS dash by selecting MS dashboard from Unleashx, it gives me the "Unable to launch "C:\xboxdash.xbe". File does not exist.".
Am I correct in assuming that my whole problem is because I don't have the MS dash on my shadow c so once the game launches it is not able to detect my video settings? Is the solution just to copy a 5960 MS dash to my shadow c? Can I simply copy xb0xdash.xbe to my shadow c and rename it xboxdash.xbe or do I have to find a clean 5960 dash online and put that in my shadow c?
Anyway, am I on the right track here? Your help would be greatly appreciated!
