XBOX 360 Middle Atlantic Rack Installation

These are photos of my first XBOX 360 installation in a Middle Atlantic Rack. The emitter is hidden inside. The face plate pops off so i was able to embed the emitter without opening the XBOX 360.

Getting it to play nice on it shelf was easy. I have the power supply tucked to the side & the power cord tied up neatly across the back.

This is poor quality 🙂 video of me testing the XBOX 360 emitter installation by sending the eject command via Crestron XPanel.

    The faceplate looks really clean –
    How did you embed the IR receiver?

      It was the first XBOX i put in a rack. A programmer i was working with told me about popping the faceplate off the xbox. Once i did that i used a little hot glue to hold the emitter on the IR receiver inside. I ran the emitter wire out and put the faceplate back on. I put a little eletrical tape in place to keep the RSH shelf from cutting the emitter wire.

      I got lucky and didnt have to open the unit.

    What model RSH is that? Is it RSH4A3S? I’ve seen the RSH4A3S with and without the custom contour to the Xbox. Can you confirm the model number??? Very nice install!

    This is the model number on the work ticket RSH4A3S. It is 3 spaces.
