Help! Xbox dead after switching HDTV option

Post by kopibean » Fri Jan 27, 2006 5:42 pm

Hi, Need help urgently!

My xbox is dead after I switch it to HDTV using xbvset. This is what I have done:

1. Boot up Gentoox - ok
2. Login using VNC - ok
3. Open up a terminal and su
4. Use xbvset to set the display to HDTV mode (I have just bought a HDTV but the xbox is still without component cable, I am using the normal composite cable)
5. Reboot Gentoox - this time it showed until the bootloader and then the screen turn blank, the xbox status light is flashing "GREEEN" continuously.
6. I tried to SSH into the box, but apparently xbox is not booted correctly as I cant even PING the xbox ip. So SSH don't work.

How else can I revive my xbox?? Anyone can help? Thanks

in the loader screen you have option to fix your screen. If you can get there...
Box: XBOX ver 1.1
Mod: Xecutor 2.3 lite+
Hdd: WD 80GB
Dash: Evox, Ava, XBMC
Linux: Gentoox Pro 4.2

Can someone please guide him though the Gentoox Loader screen as if he was blind. I suggest starting off by hitting right about 10 times so you know you're on the "Advanced" option. Then press 'A'... {insert the rest of the instructions here}.

I'd do it myself, but I dont have an Xbox set up anymore (other than the server).
