So like the title says, I have a V1.6 still with the gold clock cap installed everything works great except some emu's will not work with 720x480 or 480i because the screen is garbled so because of this what good is a soft modded (UnleashX using SID 5.11) V1.6 Xbox? I cant use it for emulation which is what I was hoping for is the V1.6 basically useless and not worth bothering with for the emulation side?
Xbox Halo Green Limited Edition v1.4

I don't know enough about emulators on the Xbox and what particular problems a v1.6 with Xcalibur video processor may cause to be able to answer that.

As I said elsewhere the v1.6 480p issue with some original Xbox games is the only problem I know about for certain. Whether it effects some emulators/ROMs as well I only suggested was a possibility.

I hope some here knows for sure because I'd be interested to know the answer too.

Certain Madmab emulators need to have the skin and settings switched. For example if you load up Snes9x in 720p with the emulator set with the 480i skin it will get all screwed up. Its very annoying but boot in SD switch the skin and settings to HD then reboot the XBOX in HD (terrible setup but it is what it is)

You can confirm or deny encoder issues simply by using an emulator with on the fly video switching like KIxxx1.2. If you can boot it in SD and HD and have no issue switching the resolution in the KIxxx menu then you know the XBOX is fine. If it also gets garbled video then you need to start looking at other possible problems. Like the force progrssive patch included in SID for example

There are also good alternatives for problem emulators
Mednafenx NES- NestopiaX or Penny Ops FTW
Snes9XBOX - ZSNEX3.7+ or Penny Ops FTW
NeoGenesis - NeoGensPlusGX or Penny Ops FTW
MekaX - SMSPlusX or Penny Ops FTW
