Connecting xbox 360 with Samsung 305t monitor problem

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".

SOURCE: samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever

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.

SOURCE: XBOX 360 will not display on my TV NOW!!! HELP!!

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.

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.

How do you connect the XBOX audio line out to the monitor audio input? If the xbox HDMI output is set to send the digital audio through the HDMI cable, you will not get the sound since you are using HDMI to DVI because the DVI is not made to accept the digital audio. You will need to to use the XBOX analog audio output instead feeding the audio cable with mini stereo phone plugs, please read XBOX user manual.

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

TV wont detect HDMI Devices except a pc.


Something is wrong whith the HDMI jack it's self, or the electronic switching is not sensing a signal is present. In either case the board that has the HDMI jack you are using needs to be replaced. Most all these boards are double printed, Multi-layered or both which prevents replacing the jack it's self. I do have a question though, do you only have on HDMI jack on the unit or do you have another one available.

CONNECTING XBOX 360 TO SAMSUNG HOME CINEMA SYSTEM VIA OPTICAL


For some reason you can only have the component leads with optical cable, if you put hdmi cable in there is no connection for the opticle cable out.

No sound from my xbox 360


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.

360 won't let me use HD display settings


Have you set the actual monitor settings to 1080? sometimes you have to do that first. If it's not set first the Xbox will only recognize it's current settings.

XBOX 360/SAMSUNG PLASMA TV


If you have an Xbox 360 Elite or a newer Xbox 360 Premium, you should use an HDMI cable if your TV supports it. Otherwise use a component cable.
