Sorry man, there's nothing special about the Xbox cable versus a regular USB cable except the funny end. If your stick will come up on a PC or PS3 properly, then it absolutely HAS to be a wiring problem in the Xbox1 cable.

Cheers Toodles, I'll give it a go with another cable.
Does it matter that I have the RJ45 cable hooked up to row 2 on the Cthulu for the Xbox1 cable and the USB output for PS3/PC?

Since the switchcrafts cannot be found in Europe, to the best of my knowledge, I used my router to fix the Neutrik connector to my wooden box.

Yeah, I have the same problem trying to find the Switchcraft's. You can get the Cat6 feedthrough versions in the UK, which seem a tad cheaper than the Neutrik Cat6 jacks, but that's as close as I've got.
Alternatively, you could try a Switchcraft 15pin D Sub.

I wouldn't mind a link or two (I searched farnell's catalog but didn't find anything vaguely close to switchcrafts. Oh yeah, there's Neutrik's passthru but at 30 EUR a piece, it's just too much money wasted - damn, their shit is gold-plated or what ?)
I went the neutrik route because there're designed to be plugged/unplugged often, I don't think this is the case with SUBDs, where you're supposed to secure the connectors with screwdrivers....

The following pictures dont match up
in the first picture, the green and the blue stripped wire are going to the imp, but in the second picture every wire is going to the Cthulhu board. which way is correct??

The green and blue stripped wire shown in the second picture goes to the imp. The other six go directly to the RJ-45. The outgoing D+ and D- from the Imp joing with the other six at the rj-45, like in the first diagram.

Their CAT6 stuff has a different RJ-45 receptacle that could fit better into wood cases (24mm hole). The square backend that accepts the cable is removable for wiring, so if the case were thin enough it should work. Right now they are pretty expensive though (~$30?).

I suggest that you take a multimeter and triple check the pins to the RJ-45. Also I would boot the system up with the cord already in the system and then plug the ethernet jack end into the stick. NESes are prone to reset if you slightly move the system. Also double check this instructable by Toodles himself. I suggest that you just forget about the purposes of the wires and the similarities between Nes and Snes circuit design and treat them like totally different systems. Just strictly think of the pin numbers to the G-V rows.

Ha, yeah, finally got my hands on a multimeter and did some continuity tests and found a slight difference in the cable my initial observations didn't catch. My NES cable works perfectly now. Now to try for a Saturn one....

Would a usb to RJ-45 adapter like this work work also?

I just don't feel like taking off the female b on a working chtulhu.

That USB adaptor, I'm pretty sure it won't work for what i'm guessing your thinking.

I was looking around the forum to find out if there were any variants of the RJ-45 ports that do not require screws to configure into the case. Reason being is that i'm receiving a case that I would prefer not to have drilled around and would like to find another way to add the jack in and secure it without damaging the case.
