    Ok guys I just got an Xbox and the advanced AV pack. Can anyone tell me where to go to find all the cool accessories (wireless, extra controllers, extender cables etc) and what are some good Xbox forums?

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    Also if anyone knows where you can buy just the power cord for the Xbox please let me know.

    Jeff (Cooper): The AC cord is a standard appliance cord. I picked one up somewhere (Radio Shack or Lowes or Home Depot) and it works fine.

    Thanks. I need this to transport my XBox between 2 different locations, one has the cord buried behind a 200lb entertainment center which i'd rather not move everytime I want to move the XBox.

    That's the same reason why I got the extra AC cord. I leave the extra one and the pack-in A/V connector in the Xbox travel bag. less to mess with.

    I have the backpack, but I understand that the Gpak (sp?) is a really nice option because you don't have to take your Xbox out of it to use it.

    Okies any other hints on forums etc..?

    Jeff: I can confirm that Radio Shack has a standard cord that will work. That was the one cord that I could find..now the others...?

    Laters,
    Jeff

    Extra cord? I just picked up another Xbox [​IMG]

    The Logitech Wireless controller is the best bet for Xbox.

    IGN has some ok forums (skews pretty young)

    Thanks guys! I will check those out. I have been so busy that I haven't had lots of time to play. Hopefully that will change soon!

    Laters,

    Have to agree with Matt, I have 3 xboxes (2 softmodded and 1 umodded for XBL) and xbox-scene.com is invaluable for info on anything remotely xbox related.

    cheers on the new xbox,
