I was wondering if its at all possible to make a converter so you can output your xbox to VGA or DVI? I've heard tid bits on this but never the whole story could someone shed some light on this?

I know you cab buy vga converters, the cost of parts to make one would prob work out fairly expensive tho, and never seen any diagrams for it.

2 ways of doing it, you get a composite to RGB converter , making your own one would be foolhardy if your not a dab hand with electronics.No point in getting a DVI coverter as your never going to get a native digital signal anyhow. Best one id say is the x2vga (http://www.x2vga.com/), down side is it doesnt display interlaced video (but most things run in progressive anyhow)

The other thing, well the GPU on the xbox is an Nvidia chipset and has a native VGA signal anyhow, just need a bios to tell it that , sorry memories a little vague here, i remember reading about it years ago but as i`ve never done it never paid much attention (pixel8 rings a bell), but im presuming theres bios`s out there that allow VGA modes. Anyhow in that case all youd` need is a cable adapter consisting of a resistor , 2 capacitors and vga sockets. Do a google on xbox to vga
