Awesome! Thank you. Isn't it a 6 pin though?

For us metric folk, that's 3.96mm and I'll now look into buying some of those.

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

I'm in the USA, and have an official VGA cable - does this differ from the scart stuff you're mentioning or are scart and VGA the same thing for our purposes here? many thanks guys Two totally different ways. Scart connection is required if you go with the scart to jamma route using Viletim's pcb a...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

UVC is nice, but impossible to find. Wonder why nobody is able to copy a nice alternative. Any more where yours came from? :) Yeah I've been wondering the same thing since I went on a hunt. These things came out many years ago and with the advancement in technology, I would have thought there'd be ...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

I don't know if the viletim board can passthrough the video, but I haven't even given it any thought before. ;) I'm only assuming since I see terminal blocks for 12v, 5v, gnd, and the video sync. Don't kill me, but I've read this thread a couple of times now and I'm still unsure of what I need to g...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

Very nice wire work! The interlace flickering in menus never did bother me that much. Ingame video is what counts, and it looks great IMHO, but I only ever compared the 24kHz video to the 480i, and not 240p vs 480i, so... Congrats on scoring the UVC. Yeah in game video is definitely a massive diffe...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

It's a much easier process with a tri-sync monitor :)

I can't wait to compare 240p vs 480i.

The amount of flickering in menus is astonishing...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

So I thought I'd give this thread an update as I finally managed to get the 360 into my astro city!!! Managed to find Viletim's v2 scart to jamma locally - hopefully it arrives by the end of the week. It even contains the pass through terminal blocks. I'm assuming I can pass through my ps360's using...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

One silly question. Those chinese amps have only left and right output, how do you wire the four speakers? I just daisy chained both left speaker positives and negatives into their respective sections in the amp. I did the same for the right speakers Does it draw power from the jamma PSU, or it has...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

For 240p rather than 480i, yes. It's a matter of taste however. Yeah that's what I read.. For 240p, I needed the emotia/uvc and a vga chassis which none of my chassis has. My Viletim set up is: 360 Scart to Viletim PS1/2 adapter for Viletim ps3 / X360 to PS1/2 adapter Cool. That'll be my setup exce...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

I think it's 4 buttons, but doesn't Astro City still require a separate kick harness connection? For my EGRET II cabinets, there is a dedicated connector for buttons 5 and 6 for both players. This should go directly into your PS360 PCBs instead of through the JAMMA connector, right? I'll figure som...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

It sure can, and for two players if you want that. Awesome! I just couldn't see button 6 on this pic http://etim.net.au/scart2arcV20_orders/ctrlexp1.jpg The only way I see a kick harness is if you buy the Controller board 3 with kick harness option. My advice is getting a PCB that outputs to PS2 co...

Anybody used this scart to jamma? It's relatively cheap and I'm ok to do it his with a pad hack.

Does anybody have the details for the Astro City Monitor Pinout?
