Xbox Media Center

My poor Xbox has been having issues with audio for a long time.  I stripped it apart last night, and repaired a cold joint on the motherboard and modchip.  Sadly, although my soldering skills have improved greatly since I first assembled the Xbox, the problem was apparently not the shoddy soldering job.  My new theory is that the flashed BIOS my be iffy, and if thats not the case then there is likely a pretty deep hardware problem.  Bummer.  Then it's simply a question of spending money to make a new XBMC Xbox, or put money into a VGA-NTSC converter or video card for one of my existing computers.
