Shouldn't be any setup to it, Just plug it in to the correct components, and power it on, Granted your TV is on the right channel, you should be fine.

Xbox set up


If you have an Xbox 360 connected to a home network that also has a Windows Media Center, you can add your Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender device so that you can enjoy the digital media on your Windows Media Center computer by using Xbox 360. For more information, see Xbox 360 online.
1. Turn on your Windows Media Center computer and log on to Windows. Verify that your computer is connected to your home network.
2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and verify that it is connected to your home network.
3. In Windows Media Center, on the start screen, scroll to Tasks, and then click add extender.
4. On the Welcome to Windows Media Center Extender Setup screen in Windows Media Center, click Next.
5. Press the Green Start button blank.gif on your Xbox 360 remote control or use your Xbox 360 controller to select the media blade.
6. On your Xbox 360, select Media Center.
7. On your Xbox 360, follow the instructions on the screen to obtain an 8-digit Windows Media Center Setup Key. Write down this 8-digit setup key. This is the key that you will use to affiliate your Xbox 360 with your computer that has Windows Media Center.
You do not need to download any additional software because the Extender functionality is built into Windows Media Center.
8. On the Enter the Setup Key screen in Windows Media Center, use the Windows Media Center remote control or keyboard to enter the 8-digit setup key that displays on Xbox 360, and then click Next.
9. Follow the steps in Extender Setup.
Several changes are automatically made to your Windows Media Center computer during the Extender Setup, including changes to the Windows Firewall settings. For more information about Windows Firewall, see Windows Firewall: recommended links. During this time, the Windows Media Center Extender service (which is named mcx2svc) starts on your computer, along with other dependent services.
If you have a firewall running on your computer that is not the Windows Firewall, make sure that the firewall software is set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to your Windows Media Center computer as a Windows Media Center Extender. Some firewalls are already set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to a Windows Media Center computer as a Media Center Extender. However, other firewalls will require you to make changes to how the firewall software is set up. For more information about which firewalls are already set up to allow a Media Center Extender connection, as well as information about how to set up other firewalls to work with a Windows Media Center Extender such as Xbox 360, go to the Firewalls and Media Center Extender article on the Microsoft website.
10. After Extender Setup has finished, in Windows Media Center, click Finish.
On the TV that is connected to Xbox 360, the Windows Media Center user interface appears. You can then enjoy live TV, recorded TV, pictures, music, videos, and other digital media on your Xbox 360 as you would in Windows Media Center. A new user account named mcx1 (by default) is automatically created to use the Extender.

Please see http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/8076aff3-16ec-4751-9f57-d36e0ff407201033.mspx#EPD for more info.

Hi I'm trying to hook my xbox up to a Emerson tv


Check the component video inputs. A lot of manufactures incorporate a composite video input into the green component input. (meaning try to put the yellow cable into the green input) Also, check the sides and bottom of your TV. Some TV sets have some what hidden inputs for alternate AV setups. If you only have an RF setup then you will need to buy and hookup an RF modulator. (recommend you just buy a new TV if this is the case!) If you could have listed the model number of the TV then I could check to see what video inputs you actually do have and be able to assist you better. What I would recommend though is to purchase component video cables or use an HD hookup. You will find your video gameplay to be much better.

Can xbox 360 work on my TV in another room if I have wireless setup?


The Wireless setup only allow you to access networks? Nothing to do with signal out to a TV. So I guess NO.

We have sound but no picture on the xbox 360


The first thing to try is to remove the external hard-drive from your Xbox and see if the picture comes back. If that doesn't work you may have the video resolution of the Xbox set too high for your TV to display. Try reducing the Xbox resolution and see if you can get a picture. There is a switch at the end of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox that says TV and HDTV. Try setting it to TV. If you know someone with another Xbox 360 that you can borrow you can use it to debug your problem. If their Xbox works on your TV try swapping out the cables. You can see if your Xbox works with their cables and if their Xbox works with your cables. You should be able to narrow your problem down to either the Xbox, the cables, or the TV setup.

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.
