Some of the options you mentioned will carry audio along with the video from your Roku to your monitor but not the VGA for sure it's just video on that cable. I think your HDMI/DVI converter might work though. Worth a try anyway???
Let us know how it goes? We can all learn something here.
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.
Try to check what type of connection you're using if its HDMI, DVI or VGA. If happens you're using HDMI it has a capability to give sound you just have to check the settings on the monitor or on the pc tower unlike the VGA and DVI you need to use speaker jack to have a sound on your monitor.
Your HP2009M monitor supports (3) methods of accepting signals from a computer. They are: 1) VGA, 2) DVI and, 3) HDMI.
You would connect the computer to the monitor using one connection only. Generally the VGA is the least desirable as it is an analog signal. The DVI and HDMI method provide digital paths into the monitor and often perform better. Your computer may only offer 1 or 2 connection choices, so you'll have to choose a cable type that is supported by both the computer and the monitor. The HDMI choice will pass audio signals to the the speakers in the monitor without needing to run a second cable between the stereo audio jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor (located next to the HDMI jack) or to a set of external speakers (unless of course you prefer the external speakers).
The message you're seeing is normal. Once the monitor is connected to your computer, there will only be one active selection; VGA, DVI or HDMI. Since you're using the analog VGA jacks and cable, it is expected that you'll see a message that there is no signal present on the DVI (and HDMI) inputs when attempting to view signals on other inputs.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.
