    not my idea pics are not mine found them on another forum
    iam using cheap chinese component cables now they work but have allot of interference
    xbox hd av pack is uncommen and expensive ,so is the monster cable uncommen and expensive
    the pound hdmi cable is good but sold out ,the n64freak xbox to hdmi kit is very good but expensive
    wii2hdmi adapter hack to xbox maybe a better cheaper option

    Reminder, the wii2hdmi boards are very sensitive to static electricity

    That's really nice TBH... Any noticeable input lag?

    I bet a 3D printer could make that look flush inside the Xbox too.

    So just to be clear, this takes a 480p inputted signal, and upscales it to 1080p?

    no the wii2hdmi is not a upscaled 480p in 480 out or somegames do support 720p or 1080i
    i read that some adapters do upscale to 720p or 1080p but they are hard to find

    found one that can upscale to 720p or 1080p https://www.ebay.nl/itm/Wii-to-HDMI...019356?hash=item2aa6ea9adc:g:muUAAOSwtida2p5~

    Features:
    The Wii to HDMI converts your Wii video and audio output to full digital HDMI format.
    It supports all Wii display modes including: NTSC 480i, 480p, PAL 576i automatically, and upscales them to HDMI 720P or 1080P.
    The HDMI output is either 720P (default) or 1080P, please make sure your TV can support 720P or 1080P.
    The extra3.5mm audio socket brings your convenience to connect headphone or speaker. So you can enjoy games in night without worrying to disturb others.
    To switch between 720P and 1080P outputs, use a needle to push and hold for 1 second then release

    has anyone tried this by desoldering the original xbox av port from the xbox motherboard and wiring one of these adapters in its place?

    Somewhere, over there!
    Not to further bump the thread, but why not buy an actual pound or Hyperkin HDMI adapter?

    well i went ahead and ordered one and i am also going to see about ordering a desoldering tool to desolder the av port on the xbox and then wire up the adapter and see what happens

    They really aren't... Seen it firsthand. If you're referring to the green tint, that's been fixed. If $30 is overpriced then I don't know what to tell you.

    There have been countless of comparison videos with the pound cables and they def are worse then most standard component cables.
    As you can see here and also in the comparison videos that it has more a composite upscaled quality instead of a vga or component like quality. From what i have seen pound cables are more like an upscaled composite video instead of a true 480p or 720p image.

    I prefer my HDMI solution. It looks great on a HDTV as the official box outputs a great picture so you only need a dumb cable to turn the signal to digital. I made it "self powered" too.

    heres some edited version if you are wiring the adapter to the xbox motherboard also i did some twitch streams which werent very good cause of my connection but in person it looks way better than composite, the one with the top assumes you have desoldered the xbox av port from the xbox motherboard and the one with the bottom of the xbox motherboard assumes you have left the av port in there and are just soldering the adapter to the pins with wires
