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.

I just bought a Samsung 40" LCD 1080p 120Hz HDTV. I don't know too much about HDTV's, but I'm having really bad problems getting my Xbox 360 to look even remotely good on the tv. I have it set up through...


1. Check what resolution your xbox is sending to your tv. It should be set to 720p 1080i or 1080p in the video setting on the xbox
2. Make sure you are not also connecting to xbox with the composite video cable(yellow, red ,white). Should just be the hdmi running to the tv

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.

No sound with HDMI cable and Xbox 360


FROM THE TOSHIBA MENU, (FIRST MAKE SURE YOU ARE SET TO
THE HDMI PORT THAT THE XBOX IS PLUGGED INTO) THEN SELECT
HDMI SETTINGS, UNPLUG HDMI CABLE FROM THE TOSHIBA TV (LCD
FLAT, MINE IS A 42") WAIT FOR THE SETTINGS TO HIGHLIGHT OR NOT
BE GRAYED OUT, THEN TURN OFF THE THREE SETTINGS, FOR COLOR
AND LIP-SYNC., SCROLL DOWN AND PRESS THE RESET BUTTON,
WAIT FOR MESSAGE TO APPEAR. TURN OFF THE TV AND PLUG IN THE XBOX.
TURN EVERY THING BACK ON. SEE IF IT WORKS.
NOT ALL CABLES ARE THE SAME AND NOT ALL TVS ARE THE SAME.
READ THE TV OWNERS MANUAL CAREFULLY, (RTFM), I FOUND A NOTE ABOUT
THESE SETTING ON THE SPECIFICATIONS PAGE.

While playing xbox 360 in 1080p mod, the screen frequently blanks


Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.

XBox 360 and Other Game Connections


How are you connecting the XBOX 360?

Component? HDMI?

Make sure all connections are plugged in snug.
If you use HDMI then audio should work without seperate cable.

For component make sure red and white cables are also plugged into right spot on back of TV.

Hope this helps!
Thanks.
