Trying to connect my xbox

Hi.  I have an XBOX (original) and I'm trying to connect it.  I do not want to connect it directly to my TV (I can't - the plugs are in the back of the TV and my landlord has screwed the TV to the wall so I can't access back of TV)

I was wondering if I can connect it to my cable set top box, somehow.  I have a Comcast HD-DVR cable box

Original xbox system

How do you have your Xbox connected to your TV? Through an HDMI cable? Are any other components involved, such as a Home Theater system, etc? If you have your Xbox going directly into your TV, you should be able to select the input (IE: HDMI 2) on the TV, then power on your Xbox and be ready to go.

I hope this helps!

How to set up tony hawk shred board. on the tv it says to connect the board, and the light on the board keeps blinking green

You need to connect the board to the XBOX before you can the Connect button on the main console (on my XBOX 360S it is directly to the left of port 1 for the game controller), then press and hold the tiny button far left on the board controller. That's as far as I got, it won't calibrate to save my life!

How do you attach an x-box to the yamaha natural sound home theater system dvr s200??


You need to use an optical cable to connect your xbox to your home theater system.
This can be done 2 ways

1) You can connect the optical cable directly from the xbox to the home theater system.

2) You can also connect your xbox to your TV by HDMI and then connect your TV by optical cable to your home theater system.

This has the added benefit of all the devices that use your TV being able to use the home theater system in the same way the xbox is using it.

No picture on tv and will not show us any menu

hi there! i would first recommend to check the cable interface of your xbox to your tv. are you using HDMI cable or the composite video cable? you may isolate your xbox console by trying to use your cable on other appliance like DVD or Blue ray disc and connect it to your TV.

good luck to you and i hope i answered your question. feel free to ask if my suggestion above did not worked.

Xbox 360 Console, Faulty, NO DISPLAY!!??

What do you mean, no display? Is is game-related display issues? Have you checked the AV cable connection? Or is it about the settings? Is this the first time that you are going to connect your xbox console?

To determine whether the display issues are specific to a particular game, try playing a different game to see whether the same symptom occurs. Reminder, some Xbox original games that were released for the original Xbox console may show some display issues when you play them on the Xbox 360 console.

Next, make sure that AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV. To verify that the AV cable is connected correctly to the Xbox 360 console and to the TV, you can disconnect the AV cable and then reconnect the AV cable to both devices. Note: If you are using composite cables, do not try to set any HDTV settings. If you try to set HDTV settings, you may lose the picture.

You might also want to check your TV's settings because some display issues can be caused by how the TV is set up. To make sure that this is not the case, please check your TV's settings.

In your TV's settings, you should check the following:
- Make sure that your TV is set to the same video broadcast system as your Xbox 360 console (PAL or NTSC)
- If your Xbox 360 console is a PAL console, set your PAL settings to PAL 60
- If your TV has a type of picture compensation enabled, disable it
- If your TV's settings are correct, you may want to try using a different TV, if you have one available. Try connecting your Xbox 360 console to another TV to see whether the same display issues occur

Next, reset your Xbox 360 console. To reset the display settings to the default settings, follow these steps:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn off the console.
3. Turn on the console.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.

Xbox 360 will not send a picture signal to TV

Hi there,

sounds like you have a graphics card problem with the xbox 360. possibly loose/damaged electrical connections between the GPU and the motherboard which has caused the xbox to not display a picture. with this being a Hardware problem i would suggest calling the Xbox customer support, numbers can be found on call up the support team and explain your problem.

I believe that microsoft will ask you to send the Xbox direct to them so they can fix the problem for you, it shouldnt take long to correct !

hope this helps

Do i really need Xbox live???

Hey supcom296,

If you are looking to connect two XBox consoles together for offline play, the method can vary depending on the type of XBox you own.

For the original XBox, there should be two supported methods. The first allows you to directly connect two XBox consoles together using a "system link" or Cat 5 Ethernet crossover cable, while the second is to connect up to four XBox consoles using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub.

With the XBox 360, there should be three methods available. The first is to directly connect the two consoles using a traditional Ethernet cable (RJ45), the second allows up to 16 different XBox 360's to connect by using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub, while the third uses either a wireless router or the XBox's built-in Ad-Hoc networking tools to make a connection.

If you are unsure how to set up the consoles using any of these methods, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions in the owner's manual for your XBox, or by simply visiting the support section of Microsoft's homepage.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
