    Is it possible for VGP to produce XOSVP or component cables made of 360 components parts?

    I’ve spent months looking for something decent for Xbox without paying crazy prices for shipping from the US (for cables that might die of old age anyway). One guy in UK sold be a refurbished cable made from 360 component parts and Xbox composite output plug on eBay, but the cable arrived with sound channel broken, so I returned it, but only managed to get a refund after eBay intervened – a shady seller kept ignoring me. So I keep looking for something similar that works.

    If you’re okay with getting YPbPr over SCART instead of RCA, you can get this cable from Retro Gaming Cables in the UK; or, if you have a need for digital audio via TOSLINK, up your budget and pick up one of the HD AV packs on eBay.

    Is there any reason why you specifically want a Frankensteined cable?

    I don’t have SCART on my tv. I don’t really need Frankenstein cable, but I just don’t want to order from US. It’ll cost up to $150 which is too much for me. If there’s a HD AV pack selling in Europe somewhere I’d buy it.

    I found several HD AV Packs with reasonable shipping on ebay.co.uk, though you will likely need to provide your own RCA<->RCA cables.

    Can you link me any finds? I can only see cheap $5 chinese cables that I already have – they are awful.

    I found this though:

    Might try ordering it.

    This is the one that scammed me:

    My mistake; the ones I saw are from the US and Canada.

    If you give that 20-pound Frankenstein cable a try, do report back with your results.
