X2vga2
« on: April 20, 2013, 01:24:50 AM »


Hey all,
I have a NTSC original (as of now unmodded) xbox connected to a xbox high definition av pack (component) connected to a Neoya x2vga2 (vga out) connected to my gateway FHX2402L (capable of 1080p).  The various cables connecting all work, here's the problem:

When I turn the xbox on and get to the main menu the screen is cut off.  I've tried enabling 480p, 720p and 1080i in the settings, but it doesn't work.  I can move the screen from left to right when I hit a certain button on the x2vga2, so that makes me think my monitor isn't liking the x2vga2.  Someone's got to have found a solution to this in 12 years.  Anyone?

Cheers-

Can you describe more fully what you mean by "the screen is cut off"?

Do you mean it is not centred or some of it is missing?

Here's a pic: http://imgur.com/pD4vvYc
Essentially I can only see about half of the screen at a time, but I can press a button on the Neoya unit to pan the view from left to right.

Did you try changing video mode setting (normal, letterbox, widescreen)?

Yes, I've tried each of those settings (widescreen shows a little more of the screen) but the majority of the picture is still cut off.

Could it be an issue with my monitor not supporting the signal that the x2vga2 outputs?  After all, it is a new monitor and the x2vga2 came out almost a decade ago...

I've not seen a problem like that but I think it has to be a resolution issue. Highly unlikely to be the Xbox itself. As long as it is region set to NTSC and all the ED/HD options (480p/720p/1080i) in the Video Settings are ticked all should be good.

Monitor trouble: possibly, you should check what resolutions it supports but I'd be surprised if it was this.  

So that leaves the transcoder as the culprit and a few searches around the web suggest the Neoya had/has other issues although I can't find anything like this problem.

You say you've tried all the Xbox resolution settings, sorry if this too obvious but what about the Neoya x2vga2 resolution settings?

The info I found on it suggests it supports 480i/p, 720p and 1080i/p; is there a way to alter that manually?

It apparently has a LED indicating what resolution it is outputting, what does that show?

Have you tried just selecting one Xbox ED/HD resolution?

BTW when using a monitor be careful NOT to select a SD resolution by unchecking the ED/HD Xbox options ie. switching it to NTSC 480i. Most monitors won't support this and if the Xbox resolution settings are unprotected by a Shadow C you could be lining yourself up for some coniderable hassle unless you have a TV which supports 480i via Component too.
