I have done a lot of reading about turning on and off an xbox original unit. I have read about the XIR method and the door bell method. I was wondering if the following was pragmatic and possible. Plug the xbox into a x10 controlled outlet and use an iphone to control that outlets "on off" I would suppose that the xbox would have to be modified in such a way as allow it to go off and on everytime the outlet provided or shut off power. I guess the "tooth pick method" could be used to wedge the on off button into always being on. I have two questions.
1) does the above make sense?
2) does turning on the xbox by applying current to it as opposed to using the usual switch to turn it on or off have any negative consequences?
