Hi there again..
Ihave a V.1.1 xbox that I haven't used in sometime and I went back to use it a few weeks ago and found some issues: Now I read alot of info from teamxecuter and also searched here and found many options but they are all not only confusing but some involved soldering, of which I cannot do.
I was told to reflash the bios, and did so, but let me explain... Most the posts say they have no video/audio but I can get some video, and some bad audio...
1- When I boot after not having the xbox on for a day or so. I get the message about the config live, then nothing but a black screen.
2- With chip off, it's just a black screen.
3- Now if I switch to bank 2 (My switch has only 2 banks) I get the flash bios 3.0.3 screen without a problem. Then I shut down the power and reboot with bank 1 on and I get the video but as soon as XBMC loads I can hear "crackling".
This happens no matter what TV, and no matter which cables I used.
Should I just try rebuilding the xbox software wise...(meaning completely format the HDD with Slayers and redo it all) or should I scrap the xbox.
Things I've tried:
Switched Video cables: Both AV and Component
Switched power outlets in the house.
Tried AV and Component Cables on other xbox's (they all work fine)
Tried reflashing the bios. (using latest X2 Bios...x2_5035_vOld_512k)
