Consoles4You has just received a #NoCutMod HDMI modded Original Xbox to test.
There are no deatails about the board yet, other than it’s an internal mod that ttranscaodes Digital audio and component Video to HDMI.

There’s also N64 Freak who is preparing a Plug & Play solution called OGX HD: an adapter that takes Component Video and Analog Stereo Audio and converts it to HDMI, however digital audio isn’t used.
