True Xbox HDMI Mod Announced

There’s a new project being teased that’s a true digital-to-digital HDMI mod for the original Xbox.  The most important difference between an analog-to-digital mod (or cable) and this is that the signal is tapped right from the GPU’s encoder before its converted to analog, resulting in a noise-free, 1:1 representation of the signal.
