First off, a little about my setup:

I have a Xenium ICE chip on my XBox that has been modded for years.
I also have the official M$ hi-def cable going to my older, non-high def TV (8yr-old Mitsubishi 50" rear projection). I use this one because A. it's component and B. it has the digital output for my sound system.

I'm writing this at work, so I'm away from the XBox right now. I'll be as specific as memory allows.

I have always run XBMC as my default dashboard without a problem, however yesterday I downloaded the latest version of the T3CH build (rev10259) and installed it.
Everything was running fine until I was a curious dumba$$ and decided to turn on the 720p and 1080i in the video settings.
When I rebooted, the video was garbled. The startup sound still came on and I could FTP into the XBox, but video is now useless and looks like VCRs used to when the tracking was off (I don't know the proper term for this...interlacing is off). So far, here's what I've tried:

1) FTP'd into the box, found the .xml file that had the values for 720 and 1080 set to true. Changed them to false, rebooted. Nogo.
2) FTP'd into the box, modified evoxdash.cfg (or whatever my loadfile in the root of C is called) to point to an older, backed up, fully functioning version of XBMC and rebooted. Same problem, only the startup sound was my older one, so I know it loaded the backed up version of XBMC.
3) Powered off the XBox, hit the eject button on the DVD drive which evokes the modchip BIOS screen or whatever it's called...it also has the video garbled.
4) Tried a regular composite (RYW) adapter to my TV. Same thing.
5) Downloaded Enigmas video switcher disk to make sure it hadn't gone to PAL somehow. I can see enough of the screen as it scrolls by quickly to see that it's set to NTSC as it should be.

Also: The initial XBox "boot" screen displays video correctly, but then goes garbled when it loads XBMC, or chip BIOS.

Can anyone help Have I bricked my XBox? Many thanks in advance!

-Mark

Sounds to me like you switched the NTSC toPAL, to find out you need to put an app named enigma video switch on a disc put it in the xbox and wait till you know it has booted and press B.
Give that a go man.

Hi Wes,

Thanks for the tip I actually tried the Enigma disk and could verify the the box is set to NTSC. Any other ideas?

Is it just on the xbmc dash or all?

Can you launch a game disc and did it do the same thing?

Happens everywhere...including the modchip BIOS. I just tried several game discs with the same result. Sad

Try switching back to the standard A/V cable. Hopefully the xbox will detect the change and revert back.

Ftp in and back up all you settings files from xbmc and reinstall, if the MS dash is fine it might just be the xbmc settings.

Dangermouse,
I tried using the standard VGA connector, no improvement.

Wes,
I've installed another copy of XBMC and booted to that with no improvement. I don't actually have the MS dash anymore (I didn't do it right when I initially modded). What I have is the MS bootup screen, then garbledness.

This sucks.

If all you changed was the settings to 720 or 1080 and thats the prob take the xbox to a tv that can run in that format and if that dont clear up the screen you have a much bigger prob.

This happened to me too...lots of fun. Another way to go is to FTP to your XBOX and replace your MS Dash with a fresh copy. Pretty quick way to fix it...I did the same thing once upon a time and that fixed it.

Good luck!
