You think an XBox 480p DVD playback hack is in the works?

    I noticed that Stacey, who worked on XBox DVD development (great job btw), mentioned 480p was pulled at the last minute. A change of that magnitude must have called for a quick fix. Perhaps a switch of some sort?
    The sad thing is the guys who are up for these kinds of hacks probably couldn't give a flying .... about DVD 480p playback. Nevertheless, I'm sure some geeky av guy is up to it [​IMG] [​IMG] Let's hope so.

    I'm positive someone will hack it. It's a matter of changing a flag

    Ryan,

    I'm sure that hack is right around the corner. Seems like a simple thing to do and there are already a lot of hackers fiddling with the Xbox with the tools and talent to make it work.

    Seems they are even rather close to a hack that will allow endusers to upgrade to a faster harddrive. Niiice.

    Peace.

    An HD hack (a la Tivo) would be fantastic.
