    Lik sang is where I got mine from earlier this year .You should check out the classifieds on here ,as they frequently pop up .Maybe even post a wanted ad.
    A pm to Labrat could help
    If you have not already done so , you will need to mod the box to enable the progressive capabilities (unless its a US one )

    Sorry mate , been at work :D
    Yep , enable the Switcher from PAL to NTSC , you will then need to find your way to the MS dashboard and enable the extra modes in the video section (where you set it to widescreen / pal60) . These modes will only be visable when you plug in the hi def lead (the box knows :D )

    I was thinking about doing the dashboard software hack to access progressive scan. Does anyone know if it mucks up XBox live?

    (I am doing the Splinter Cell gamesave hack to run the video switcher to set to NTSC. Do I need to remove the video switcher from the hard drive after?)
