Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Image I have a GATEWAY 24" FHD2400 LCD HD HDMI monitor. i also have an xbox 360 older version without HDMI. So I have vga adapter hooked up to the monitor. When viewing games and movies from the xbox 360 I have black bars at the top and bottom of the screens. how can I fix this . I have tried the menu from the monitor and the xbox 360 menu but I can't get it right. The black bars are always there. I want the screen full. Do I need the hdmi connection? or maybe i need to hook it up to a pc?

    My Gateway FHD2400 monitor will not show video from my Xbox 360, I have it connected with a HDMI to DVI adapter. It keeps showing the same message on the screen No Signal RGB. Is there a solution for this?

You need to set the monitor up. I have a 42" LCD TV, and there is a menu where you can set the aspect ratio to 'Auto', 'Full Screen', or "4:3". I had a similar issue with my DVD player. I'm sure if you go through your monitor setup menu, you should be able to solve this problem.

Trying to hook up xbox 360 to computer monitor


Unless you monitor is HDMI capable I don't think it is possible without some sort of adapter.

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.

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 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

How do we connect xbox consul to imac and play


There is no way to connect the original XBox console to an imac's monitor. There was never an hdmi or VGA connector that was worth buying made for the Original XBox.

The XBox 360 has a nice VGA adapter. But no the original XBox, sorry!

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
