it looks like it might be a cheap alternative DVD player. No Macrovision, Region free, RGB, VGA out...


According to CKNA in the "Pioneer DV-747A/DV-733A firmware investigation (PAL prog. / MV off ...)" thread.

"XBOX plays PAL discs and even converts them to NTSC with nearly perfect quality so you can use it with any TV in US."

I would have thought that you had to update the firmware on the DVD-ROM drive first, or some other mod? Hope this is the same for the PAL version?


For us in Europe

there's this RGB (SCART) cable with S-VHS and fiber optic DD out:

And this Region X disc for region free:

and the Upcoming Enigmah chip (if you can find a dealer that carries it, due to all seem to be "contacted by Microsoft") for Macrovision off and region free, among other things...

"We have now finished the final design of the mod. It has been optimized down to a high performance CPLD. We do not use any copyrighted code in this mod. We do not replace the Flash ROM. We do not disable any onboard ROM. The Enigmah will include a feature to disable the entire mod with the push of a button so it leaves your machine in its original state."

there's also the China-Messiah chip

I almost forgot the VGA output boxes like this one:

Anyone know if it plays MP3's, SVCD's, or if there is a Progressive scan mod coming out? (I think I read here about a guy that works for Microsoft that did this to his XBox)?
