$80, yeah, but how much is that shipping charge? I would be surprised if it's less than $100 when all is said and done.
Still, it looks pretty sweet for people who want to port it to a computer monitor. Does anybody know what benefit, if any, this provides over the component cables? I know that for my Tosh, I need to go VGA->Component to display it, so it seems like an extra step avoided by just using the Hi-def pack.
It has to do with the way the signal is being changed. VGA to component involves integrating Horizontal and Vertical Synchronization timings into the colorstream outputs. If I remember correctly, when the Xbox sends out a signal to the TV, all that info has been processed in the box.
The Xbox is basically a stripped down PC, and I am sure that it is (relatively) trivial to send a VGA signal out of the box.
Correct me if I am wrong, that is what my limited knowledge has led me to believe.
