Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I recently purchased an XBox 360 and immediately tried to run Halo 3 on it. There was audio when it displayed the logo, but after that there was no sound whatsoever. I fiddled with the AV cable a bit but it did nothing. After a couple of missions of silence I tried one of my games from my old XBox (Halo 1) And audio was fine. One of my friends told me the 360 has TWO audio chips: One for 360 games and the other for games from the original XBox. Yesterday I rented and brought home Gears of War, and for half of the first mission I experienced silence. And then I got a lot of static and then audio. After that audio worked just fine, and I am no longer having trouble with this. However I would like to know why my console was performing in this way. I am absolutely positive it is not the cable or the TV.
Well, a couple of things may have happened. Even though it sounds like you didn't touch anything.
Sometime if you run the system at a higher display setting then what a game is intended, you'll see things like this occur. For example, setting your 360 to run at 1080p, when the games' max is 720p. You will see distortion, or nothing at all, and maybe even the video, but no sound.
