Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Just set up my new xbox 360. My TV is not HD and I have an antenna and hd converter box. Which does not seem to connect to the xbox console in any way. It seems like my wireless device linked up but I have no Menu screen when the console is turned on.

I'm not sure exactly what the problem might be, but if you try turning off the x-box and looking at the back, the A/V cables that come out of the back (shaped like a trapezoid where you plug it in) and they should be plugged into your TV.

If your TV uses the Red, White, and Yellow cable side, make sure the switch on the other end of the cable where it plugs into the back of the x-box is switched to "TV".

If your TV has component input "Red, Blue, and Green" make sure you switch it to "HDTV" and you'll also have to connect the red and white (left and right) audio cables.

Your HDTV digital tuner/antenna probably won't be the place to connect them.

If you do not have either cable setups on the back of your TV, you may have to go to an electronics store and purchase an A/V converter box or connector. They are not too expensive.

If you have a little extra cash to spend, I'd recommend getting a decent size LCD flat panel HDTV. Just make sure you NEVER buy a PLASMA screen to play VIDEO GAMES on (video games will destroy the screen and leave you with burn-in or ghosting). Although they are nice for movies and slightly cheaper.

I hope I could help you.

Your XBOX should have come with a set of yellow, red, and white wires (collectively known as RCA connectors) If you have no way to connect these, then you must make sure you're xbox is configured to put out HD video on a television that is able to accept the RCA outputs. By default the XBOX360 is configured for standard definition video output the last I heard. (Standard NTSC in the states)

How do i connect an x box 360 to a HD ready tv please explain simply


Every xbox comes with the HD av cords. However they are not only the standard red, white, and yellow. But they also come with green, blue, and red av cords. These are the HD cords.Your HD tv should have green, blue, and red outlets on the back of the tv. It also has a another red and white outlet under it. So you have to take the HD cords and plug them into the appropriate outlets and then take the red and white cords from the other set of avs and plug them in right under those cords so you will have sound when you turn your xbox on. On my tv the red and white outlet is right under the HD outlet. But your tv may be different. And make sure that the "box" on the cord that reads either TV or HDTV is flicked toward HDTV.

You may need to change your HD settings on the back of the console ( HD setting is actually on cord ) I had that issue when I first went online w/360 . If that does not help u know X box costumer support will repair any damaged system prob. no cost and does'nt take as long as they say.

your HD settings may be too high, go to "display settings and change them, if your not on an HD tv, change the output to "TV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, if you Are on an HD tv make sure the output is set to "HDTV" on the AV cord where it connects to your xbox, there is a little switch on the side that slides left to right

HOOKING UP XBOX 360 TO HDTV


You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Hi there

As far as I'm aware the only way to get hd with the older boxes that don't have hdmi socket is through component unfortunately.

Microsoft have indeed pulled a fast one with this and cunningly released the elite for more profit.

I think the only difference betwen component and hdmi is that hdmi has built in audio in one wire where as with component you require seperate audio.

In short, No. HD only via component.

Hope this is of help
