Is there a way to password the xbox?
i have a friends box that im modding and he wants to put it in his car, however he doesnt want his kids to have access to some of the music video's as they are risque. any thoughts on how i could secure the video portion or the whole xbox in general...besides locking it down with a big padlock and chain

You can try hanging you oldballs in front of it...lol On a serious note, I don't think you can lock the box. What I would do is not install XBMC as the dash. Instead install it as an app which makes it harder for the young'uns to mess with. Have him just show them how to play the games and that's all. Besides, you don't want kids messing with a modded xbox.
Ohhhhh, the posts we've seen on those situations. _________________

On a added note, just move the "risque" stuff to the computer and lock it there until you want to use it again, and if kids are going to be using the xbox, dont be lazy and leave that kind of stuff on there for the kids to find, use common sense. _________________

you got many chioces in my book, but here's the 2 main ones I use.
1.- Yalx (yet another lock Xbox)
what it does, you rename your default.xbe or dashboard .xbe name to yalx.ebx and you put yalx .xbe named to dash boot name, and run it, and you'll have to set a password to have further access.
This will completely lock your xbox uppon boot, to access HDD, of course any DVD game will auto boot to game.
2.- UnleashX (Dashboard)
You can easly highlight any option and any menu, and press start to get options, and you select to EDIT, and you can either put a passcode (controler key combo) and than that can be launched, or a password (of course, letters and numbers), that way you can let those kids at least play games and emulators off the HDD without having access to things you don't want, and DON'T FORGET to LOCK your File Manager/Explorer and GameSaves Manager for more security, and don't have what some very low comprehending ppl do, and have FORMAT options aviable.
Both work good, but Yalx is complete Lock from start and can also work for any app, READ it's READ ME to understand, I use this for ConfigMagic on my xbox, and UnleashX is good Dash, and you'll give them some access, but limited. _________________ Xbox v1.1

hey thanks alot...key combos is exactally what i was hoping for...
"just enter the code for mike tysons punchout..."
see my buddies installing the xbox in his car so he doesnt really have the option of uploading/downloading...he just wants to load everything on it and leave it be., his kids have a modded xbox so they know how to get around it...i think the combo thingy should work great.
