    Red face DC-DC Power for Xbox questions

    I was planning on going with an inverter to connect my Xbox to. However, with some of the stories I hear about loud inverter noise, and inverters draining the battery even when turned off, I am kind of turning my attention to a DC-DC solution. Im not too sure, but I believe this product: Apache V.2.0 Plus, would allow me to use a DC-DC PSU. Im still not too sure though. So what else specifically would I need in order to get this going? I really would prefer to turn the xbox on and off manually, as I would sometimes like to use it when the car is turned off. In addition, I would like for it to survive a crank and wouldnt want to have to turn it back on just in case I go to get gas and turn my car off for like 5-10 minutes.

    Hmmmm.
    I'm really not certain. I'd check and see the pin conversion on that adapter. It should work in theory, but I couldn't say for certain.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    yes you can use that. Long as the power is not like from dell and etc powersupply because they have there own pinouts. It will work. Seen in a car at the carshop overhere.

    So since I Can use the Apache V.2.0 Plus, what else specifically would I need in order to get this going? I really would prefer to turn the xbox on and off manually, as I would sometimes like to use it when the car is turned off. In addition, I would like for it to survive a crank and wouldnt want to have to turn it back on just in case I go to get gas and turn my car off for like 5-10 minutes.

    As far as I know you can use an Opus with an Xbox. I think it was Craigyb who did this in his Audi S8., You might need that Apache thing too to convert the ATX cables.

    If you look on the forums of www.xbox-scene.com there is a massive thread about how to use the xbox with a ATX power supply and how to basically make one of thoses adapters, but you do need some soldering skill

    Also check out this DC to DC power supply, looks perfect
