With this newest version of this module, V3, the Digital Surround Sound audio input has been fixed to work with every revision of the Xbox. V1 and V2 versions will not be shipped out any longer. All orders will be fulfilled with V3 versions.
After the first release of our Xbox2HDMI modules we received some reports that these modules were not producing sound output when used with Xbox units with Revision 1.0 hardware while connected to some specific TVs and sound bars. We released a V2 version of the Xbox2HDMI that looked to solve this issue with the addition of a small switch that allows the user to swap between analog and digital surround sound. The new V3 unit completely solves the audio issue and allows for digital surround sound on all Xbox units.
This tiny, power-packed module takes in the Component video and audio output from the Original Xbox and outputs an HDMI signal with embedded Dolby Digital Surround Sound (if that audio setting is enabled in your Xbox’s settings). This module utilizes a fully custom PCB with a higher quality, next generation IC compared to what is typically used on the widely available Wii2HDMI and VGA2HDMI modules that are readily available online. If you are not happy with those modules, then you will absolutely be happy with these.
This module efficiently supports the 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i resolutions that are default to the original Xbox. This module is able to support all of the following resolutions although they are not all achievable outputs from the original Xbox: 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p25/30/50/60, 1080i50/60, 1080p24/25/30/50/60.
This information is only being kept here for individuals who still own a V2 unit. This switch does not exist on the V3 version.
There is a small, accessible selector switch inside of the Xbox2HDMI on the side of the Xbox2HDMI that has the HDMI connector. This switch allows the user to switch between using the analog or surround sound audio output from the Xbox.
- When the switch position is changed the Xbox2HDMI must be disconnect and reconnected to your Xbox for the change to take effect.
- Be sure to select the correct audio output in the Xbox settings. Failing to do so will result in no sound output.
Surround Sound Audio
When the selector switch is to the left then only the surround sound audio is being used.
When the selector switch is to the right then only the analog audio is being used.
