    Default HDMI cable for orginal white xbox360???

    HDMI is the highest quality of digital video, used by all PS3s and one of the major new features of the new Xbox 360 Elite.

    According to Maxconsole: "The cable itself is nearly finished and will be completed in approximately four weeks and promises to allow 1080p output on a regular white original Xbox 360."

    It was previously assumed that normal 360s weren't at all capable of HDMI, but if XMC pulls it off, it'll be joyous for owners of the white box, and a kick in teeth for those that handed over major moolah for the upgraded Elite. Soz.

    Although we admit to not having super-geeky knowledge of how different video signals are encoded, we would like to throw on point out there: surely, if the 360 is still kicking out an analogue component signal which is being converted to a digital HDMI signal on it's way to the TV by the cable, the resulting picture quality will remain the same as the component original, right? We dunno. Are there any MASSIVE geeks in the building? Share your learnings in the comments section below.
    will that be possible? If so it would definitely put a dent on the Elite's sales.


    I jacked it!!!

    I hope so, I was originally holding out for the elite incase I ever get an HDMI TV in the future, but if this works then all I'll have to do is wait for the warranty to run out and I can crack my box open and spray paint the case (I could paint it any colour I want, but I like black).

    Yeah, and I'd still have to void the warranty, the alternative is that I spend about £7 on a can of spray paint at a hardware store 10 minutes walk away.

    The real question is: will it be HDCP compliant?

    EDIT: Actually, since the Xbox 360 is already HDCP compliant, and all this thing is doing is converting the signal... HDCP might not be an issue. Still, people have no reason to buy this thing if they can just plug their Xbox 360 in the normal way. It offers no improvement in video quality.

    Well talk about sales for 360 dieing if this is in fact released and works. This is bad for M$. I have the original 360 so I am kind of glad. You know they made us buy the "premium" to then find it wasn't premium.
