    As a person who is crazy for Xbox I've come across many different cables for the Xbox and decided to photograph them all for archival purposes. There are quite a few pictures so I decided to upload them as an imgur album https://imgur.com/a/r1rGUXN I hope you all enjoy.

    Nice collection. I managed to get one of the good cheap Chinese ones. It should also be noted if you have a PAL xbox you will need to run the enigmah video switcher to unlock the higher resolutions.

    A lot of people make their own cables these days/for the last few years as well

    Intersting. I myself have a XCM Component cable for my OG Xbox, but it's a multi-device cable, can also be used for GC (I think, maybe not, though), PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox360.

    Regarding the revised power cable: I received this (well, the mainland european one) from MS as well, but I have a 1.6 xbox and did not have to send in my orignal cable. I still use it, why is it a fire hazzard?

    Nice, I've wanted to make a component cable out of a 360 cables for awhile as a project but have never got around to it. I want to put a twist on it and do it to a 3 in 1 cable so I have a cable that I can use on OG Xbox, Wii and PS2. Would be cool ya know?

    If it works on GC it would be composite only.

    As for the power cable I have some documentation http://legacy.the-junkyard.net/articles.php?action=viewarticle&id=215 As well as I have anecdotal evidence of the fuse in the box not working as intended and turning off at random times when the Xbox is running as well as making a loud buzzing sound.
