Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

No sound from my xbox 360

My xbox 360 is connected to a pc monitor (no speakers) via hdmi to dvi cable. I bought a 'logic' component av cable to plug into the xbox multiport to try and take the sound to some pc speakers. When the two cables are plugged in together I lose the picture on the monitor & in any case can't get any sound output (I'm using the correct red/white leads).
Can anyone help.

Thanks,

Paul.

You cant have HDMI and the xomponent cables pluged in at the same time.
to get audio to your monitor you will need an xbox 360 audio adapter. You can find that here. http://www.xbox.com/en-us/hardware/x/xbox360hdmiavcable/default.htm

That comes with the HDMI and audio adapter.
You can probabaly find it seperate somewhere else.

I hope this helps.

How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?


Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

Xbox360 to pc monitor


HDMI to DVI works better than HDMI to VGA because VGA only uses simple RBG scheme.

Additionally the only way i see the Xbox getting connected to the extrenal speakers is if you get the speakers connected to the monitor/tv or whatever you are using directly. I havent tried or do not know of any way to connect the Xbox to speakers directly.

How do I get sound from my Xbox to my monitor via a hdmi lead - DVD lead


As far as I know, the DVI cable can't send sound, so if you could use a only-HDMI cable or SCART cable, that should give you both picture and sound.

You need a HDMI to DI cable not HDMI to d-sub cable. The sellers that are selling that cable do not tell you that it will only work with special video cards that output analog to the HDMI connector. HDMI is digital and so is DVI so they will adapt to each other. Keep in mind that this is for video only, sound will not work on the monitor because the DVI port does not support sound. You will need to add a set of speakers to the Xbox

No input signal VGA/Xbox


You are doing nothing wrong. The best thing to do, which you are doing, is to eliminate possible problems. Try a different cable, monitor etc until you narrow the problem down to a single component.

Can i connect my xbox 360 using Dvi D to Hdmi in the dvi slot and also my tower to the vga slot on my eMachines E19T6W


I am not an xbox person, but as far as hooking it up, it should work as long as the other device is NOT powered up. That being said you will still have to provide audio from the xbox another way as dvi only carries a video signal, unlike the hdmi which carries both audio and video.

Can you use an xbox arcade on flatron LG L1810T? If so which setting does it have to be on as the tv is not recognising the xbox at all


HI,
Your LG LCD monitor has a white DVI connector for connecting the signal cable.

You would reqire either an HDMI to DVI(male connector cable for the xbox) so that you can hook the hdmi cable to the xbox and other end to your monitor.
The cable would look something like this

HDMI Problem


ok i think you need to reset the video settings here is a step by step procedure which you can follow

To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, follow these steps:
  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn on the console by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Wait for the guide light to indicate that the controller has linked to the console.

    Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is indicated by the upper-left quadrant light on the console.
  4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button as you pull the right trigger.

    Note This action causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings. The console then automatically restarts.
