Question about Samsung SyncMaster 305T 30 in. LCD Television
I just can't get it to work with my XBOX, i have tried 2 different HDMI cables and I have PureAV HDMI to DVI adapter.
The freaking funy thing is, my old Syncmaster 730bf works Fine, just fine with any setting i can try from xbox.
All my 305t does, RED BLUE BLACK GREEN and some other colors start to flash I'm thinking it is some kind of error message, and yet the "manual" says nothing about it... Manual is a joke and I'm starting to think this new 305t is a total joke.
And somewhere i did read that 1080p native was available in the 305t (just plug and play).
I haven't even found any settings from my windows xp to change the monitor settings so it could "talk" to the monitor...Windows says "plug and play monitor".
ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.

Sometimes cables will just go out, especially standard ones that come in the box on gaming consoles, DVD players, etc. My recomendation would be to narrow it down to either a problem with the XBOX, the TV, or the cable.
Step 1: Find a friend with another TV to try the cable and console on. If this works, we can automatically determine that the problem is with the TV, however it most likely isn't.
Step 2: If you know someone with an XBOX, take your console to their house and connect it to their TV with their functioning cable. If this works, we can rule out the gaming console.
If Step 1, 2 yield no results, then the problem most likely is with the cable. You can pick one of the up pretty cheap on Ebay, Buy.com, etc. However, I would recommend going with an HDMI if you get to this step. You will experience much higher quality picture, sound, etc, and have a much higher gaming experience than before.
