I recently bought an xbox hd pack. I bought a 25' component to vga cable to connect my xbox to my projector (Infocus X1). I finally found out that both the hd pack and cable work by multiple different test. The problem is that when I have them connected to my xbox (xbox->hd pack->component->vga->projector), I get no video when I boot up my Xbox. I have a modded Xbox with Xenium modchip and Xenium OS. I can get to the Xenium Os and the picture will show. But once I try different bios's, I get no video, just sound. I use the ind-bios and if I select it, it says loading bios and then screen goes blank as I hear the xbox starting up and the xbmc noise. When I try to boot the retail bios, my xbox just sits there and the green light flashes many times. I don't know what to do from here. I tryed different bioses, but I got nothing? Anyone think they have an answer? Any comments are appreciated.
Also I tryed the enigmah video switcher and that did nothing.

I'm not sure, but I think your problem is that you have not enabled 480p mode on your M$ dash. This is difficult without a handy component video display so you can see what you are doing. Plugging in the HD pack causes new menu options to appear. Somewhere I saw the sequence of buttons to enable the 480p mode "blind." I think it was on one of the last pages of the pinned VGA tut.

Yea I tryed doing it blind. I also tryed updating the dash vis my Star Wars Dvd. Still nothing. When I try to boot a BIOS, my projector image flashes like it wants to show something. I tryed it with the s-video hookup, and it worked on the dash. I was reading somewhere on the AVS forums where there is a code to change the xbox from interlace to progressive. I tryed this and it doesn't work. Thanks for trying ronin. Back to the drawing board.

I found out that there is signal when I put in the Evox 2.6 Cd. So it works with the Xenium Bios, and the Evox CD. I thought it was my hd, so I formatted it. After formatting, I tryed and it didn't work. So it's not the hd or the modchip. I was thinking maybe it has something to do with the eeprom or the kernel (I don't know what this is). It might be the BIOS, but I have tryed multiple ones and it doesn't work. It's going through VGA, so is there any specific one for a VGA adapter? I'm so close....it's probably just some small configuration I am missing. TIA to any help.
