I have a V1.6 and everything is fine untill I use 720x480 setting in emulators or 480i the screen gets garbled and unreadable but it works great with 720 or 480p, I have tried two screens one is a TV the other is a monitor and I know both are good by testing with a second xbox. I have the problem xbox installed with SID 5.11 and the UnleashX dash, is this motherboard dying and good for parts or is there a way to fix it? _________________ Xbox Halo Green Limited Edition v1.4

Are you sure it is actually 480p that is displaying OK and it is not 480i?
I ask because this is a known problem with the Xcalibur video processor used in the v1.6.
The v1.6 is a bit of a pig when it comes video output. There are a significant number of Xbox games that support 480p and are fine on other Xbox versions but the v1.6 refuses to play them in anything other than 480i/576i.
There're ways around this including booting them using the EvoX dash or even a very old UnleashX. But, unfortunately, what works for one game wont work for another.
Rocky5 wrote a XBMC script that automatically patches many of the games so they do play in 480p on the v1.6. The patches fix it for all dashes, not just XBMC.
The trouble is that the patch is not universal, it fixes a list of known games with the problem applying the appropriate dash/launcher fix for each individually. Therefore if the game is not on the list it won't be patched.
It could be that the emulator display issue you describe is the same v1.6 Xcalibur trouble but how and whether you can fix it for use with an emulator booting completely different ROMs, who knows?
You could try booting the emulator from an EvoX dash installed as an app but that is a long shot. I'd be interested to hear if that worked.
